Samson Occom, journal, date unknown


[note (type: abstract): Occom describes his travels around the East coast and in Philadelphia.][note (type: handwriting): Handwriting is clear and legible.][note (type: paper): Several small sheets folded together into a booklet and bound with twine or thread are in poor conditon, with significant fading, staining and wear that leads to a significant loss of text. The tops of six verso and seven recto, and 10 verso and 11 recto, are uncut and thus impossible to scan. There are no images for these pages; however, they are blank.][note (type: noteworthy): An editor, likely 19th-century, has overwritten portions of faded text; in instances where Occom’s original hand is impossible to discern, these edits have been transcribed. This editor appears to be the originator of the date listed for the document in the Dartmouth archives. Although the year is likely, the actual date is uncertain. There are red and grey pencil marks on one recto.][note (type: ink): Brown ink is heavily faded in spots.]
