text, image


The following is taken from a transcription of Martha Baldwin’s diary (1858-1859). Illegible sections of the original text are noted as follows: ______. A parenthetical question mark (?) follows words in the original text that were not completely legible but were still transcribed. April 1. At school again in our old Academy around which linger so many happy associations. This evening I attended prayer meeting. April 2. At the old tasks again and home for Friday. April 3. Home and walking the woods in search of vines. April 4. At church in the morning and home again. Gus and Eliza united with the church. April 5th. School has closed at recess so that they might go to vote. Today we received notice that this will be the last week and we thought the time is so short one to try to have a paper and exercises.
