Vassar College Digital Library

Raymond, Cornelia M. Diary, 1903

Abstract
Short entries in a page a day format. Raymond discusses providing music lessons, Latin tutoring, substitute teaching, and chaperoning field trips for a private school in Springfield. She mentions the students' play and charity ball, as well as her coworkers' salary negotiations. Raymond describes her continuing involvement with religious and social reform. Although Raymond reports initial tensions related to Joe's decision to revive his temperance mission (despite having relapsed into alcohol abuse multiple times), she explains that she eventually resumed participating in meetings, collecting donations, bringing her Salvation Army "Volunteer" acquaintances to Joe's mission, and visiting former mission attendees who have resumed drinking. With regards to her religious studies, Raymond analyzes the sermons of Moxom and other pastors, mentions topics of her Bible and Outlook class, and writes a paper on the Beatitudes. She reports meeting Jewish and Chinese converts to Christianity at a prayer meeting and hearing missionary lectures. Raymond consistently references her involvement in the [Vassar] College Club, particularly its elections, dues, settlements [scholarships], and meetings. She also mentions her visits to other colleges in the northeast, such as Mount Holyoke College (Jan 31, Jun 3, Jun 5, and Jun 10), Smith College (Jun 10), Amherst College (Jun 10), and a college professor in the Hamilton, NY area (Jun 24). Raymond also mentions her social visits and attendance of concerts. She describes the efforts of her friends and mission members to comfort her after the death of the journalist "Harold," (who she had successfully persuaded to cease alcohol abuse). Historical events mentioned by Raymond include the finding of "Ford Howard's dead body" near [New] Haven, [CT, after he had fallen from an icy ledge] (Mar 1) and [widespread forest] fires in Maine, [West New Hampshire], Canada, and the Adirondacks (June 4).
