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 […]. Whole paragraphs found to be illegible have been noted in the following manner: [P] This afternoon went over to the cemetery to witness a burial in Masonic order. I think it solemn. This eve went to Methodist church. Lydia of course went with me. The sermon was a contrast to that of the morning. The humble, free, liberal views of the former to the must and [?] of the latter. O if that paper was off my hands. I know it will be a failure but if they don’t hand in their pieces I can’t help it for I can’t write it all with all I have to do, Lydia & I are writing but must go for I must be up early in the morning. Nov 12th Commenced logic today. That paper troubles me.
