Entries every day. At the beginning of the diary, Raymond describes her mother's illness and death (Feb 7), an event affecting her deeply. Throughout the diary, Raymond discusses her temperance activism and associated social work through "Joe's mission" and the Y.W.C.A. She describes sermons (particularly those of Dr. Moxom), church services, and outlook class, prayer meetings. Relating to her work as a teacher and her academic interests, Raymond describes giving lessons in music and Latin, her students' graduation, lectures, reading, and a lecture given by Henry James at Smith College (May 16). Maintaining her connections to Vassar College, Raymond reports attending College Club, visiting Vassar (Apr 14-17), and hearing of [VC Lady Principal] Mrs. Kendrick's illness (Apr.14). She encloses a newspaper clipping on Vassar's memorial for Mrs. Backus (Dec 1). She discusses social visits, social news, the wedding of her brother Will (July 6), correspondence, financial investments, her health, and osteopathy. Historical events mentioned by Raymond include the "annihilation" of the Russian fleet in battle (May 20), and the czar granting liberty to Russia (Oct 3), and a trolley accident in Longmeadow (Nov 18).
