Samson Occom, journal, 1774 December 19 to 1775 February 9


[note (type: abstract): Occom's journal describes his travels as an itinerant preacher during the period from December 19, 1774, to February 9, 1775.][note (type: handwriting): Occom's hand is small but consistently clear and legible. As is common with Occom, there are several uncrossed t's and crossed l's; these have been corrected by the transcriber.][note (type: paper): Several small sheets folded into a booklet and bound with thread or twine are in good-to-fair condition, with light-to-moderate staining and wear. One recto/verso is heavily damaged, which results in a significant loss of text.][note (type: ink): Brown ink varies in intensity throughout.][note (type: noteworthy): Although the missing text on one recto/verso makes it difficult to tell for certain, the "Indian Town" mentioned on one recto is likely Farmington[place0074.ocp]. On four recto, it is uncertain to where Occom refers when he mentions the "Indian Place." Illegible person and place names have not been tagged. An editor, likely 19th-century, has overwritten several letters, words and phrases, as well as punctuation. These edits have not been transcribed.]
