Some sections of the original diary are illegible, and these are noted in the transcription. A bracketed question mark [?] represents one illegible word. Places where whole sentences (or considerable portions thereof) were found to be illegible are noted with a bracketed ellipsis [â€¦]. Whole paragraphs found to be illegible have been noted in the following manner: [P] 26th Friday again and if ever a day was wellcome [sic] it is this. I havenâ€™t had a decent lesson this week.
We have a large washing but got it done after a fashion so to go to the society exhibition to night. I was going with Lydia and [?] Alney in high glee when at supper I received an invitation from Mr Hill.
Confound the fellows they are like the darkyâ€™s moon always shines as in the light night when we donâ€™t want them. It was very good but our Lyceum at home would beat them all to fits. Lydia and I have been learning our recitations and gassing till it is late.
