Book cover

First Page:

Transcriber's note:

In this work, all spellings and punctuation were reproduced from the original work except in the very few cases where an obvious typo occurred. These typos are corrected without comment.

In the original work, monetary pounds were expressed as an italicized "l." after the number. For the text version, I am using the more conventional £100 form for clarity.

In the original volumes in this set, each even numbered page had a header consisting of the page number, the volume title, and the chapter number. The odd numbered page header consisted of the year of the diary entry, a subject phrase, and the page number. In this set of e books, the year is included as part of the date (which in the original volume were in the form reproduced here, minus the year). The subject phrase has been converted to sidenotes, usually positioned where it seemed most logical but occasionally simply between two paragraphs of the even odd pair.

In the original book set, consisting of three volumes, the master index was in Volume 3. In this set of e books, the index has been duplicated into each of the other volumes. To make the index easier to use in this work, the page number has been added to each Diary date.
