[note (type: abstract): Occom details his travels through New York and New England, from May 11, 1789, to January 10, 1790.][note (type: handwriting): Handwriting is largely clear and legible. There are some crossed l's and uncrossed t's, which the transcriber has corrected.][note (type: paper): Several small sheets folded into a booklet and bound with small pins are in fair-to-poor condition, with significant wear that results in some loss of text. There are a few loose pages and the last page is torn in half.][note (type: ink): Brown ink varies in intensity throughout.][note (type: noteworthy): There are underlinings in black ink throughout and notes by later editors on the back of the last page (16 verso) in black ink and pencil; these edits have not been transcribed. On the scan of 11 recto, text from 12 recto shows through; the actual first line of 11 recto begins "gether. to Meeting…." Several other of the following scans show text from adjacent pages. On 15 recto, the name of the river that Occom mentions is uncertain; however it is possibly the Thames River[place0627.ocp]. Persons and places whose names are illegible have not been tagged. If Occom's intention regarding a word or abbreviation is uncertain, that word or abbreviation has been left unmodified in the modernized transcription.]
