An aborted attempt(?) by Mary Chrystie to start a journal. The text,
headed with the word "Journal," reads in full: "I am now going to
write a journal of myself once or twice I indulged a passion which
caused me to say I wished my mother was dead. Mr Hyer came to see us
and talk to me I can never forget what he said to me he said I ought
to give myself to God and I had allready done it I have". On the
final page Frances Chrystie, Mary Chrystie's mother, has written:
"This journal was begun before we left(?) Fishkill consequently
before she was eight years old--it was meant for no eye but her
own." See also Post-Mortem Series, item 2.
