Ida Farr's Journal  copy.pdf
Ida Farr’s journal is an account of her “daily joys, sorrows, trials, perplexities etc.” The account begins in 1872 and includes detailed stories and events of a religious, studious, New Hampshire girlhood characterized by strong family ties and warm friendships. The journal ends in 1874, with Ida budgeting and scrimping so as to be able to continue to attend High School in Newburyport.

High School Notes  copy.pdf
As Arthur writes in 1898, High School Notes was intended to be filled with stories of high school times, but when the boys switched from Newport to Haverhill high school, the journal was filled with "Haverhill, Photographing, and Hunting sketches." The journal even includes accounts of organized football games.
