Clarissa Baldwin Journal
Scope and Contents
The Clarissa Baldwin Journal (2011-68-0) is a daily journal that Clarissa Baldwin maintained for an assignment while at the Morris Academy in 1810 through 1811. The journal focuses on the day-to-day activities such as attended classes, prayer, getting to and from school, the description of the weather, &tc. There are also two comments in the journal left by her teacher Rhoda Farnham. The one that might be of most interest, because it is the most extensive, is at the end of the journal. There is also a much shorter comment about halfway through the book.
