Martina Elmendorf’s Diary, 1802

In August of 1802, Martina Elmendorf (who would go on to marry Lewis Condict) started a diary… Perhaps diary is not the exact right word. It seems to be a combination of a calendar and a sort of serial acknowledgement/ recitation of what she was learning in school and church. But diary will suffice.

I confess at the outset, I have not read it in any detail. My main effort, so far, has simply been to get it reproduced and available to others, and hopefully ensure its survival – beyond the reach of fire and flood –  into the future.

Consider this a place holder. I’ll post more when I have it.
