. The MS
's journal has not been found; all that survives in
journal form appears in AA2, Jour. and Corr.
, vols. 1 and . The printed journal from 7
Aug. 1784 though 4 June 1785 (Jour. and Corr.
, 1:viii, and 7–79) gives some idea of how
regular and full AA2
's complete diary probably was. Fragments of her journal
from 26 Aug. through 18 Dec. 1785 are in Jour. and Corr.
, 1:viii–xi, 79–84, and :185–205. Large
sections of all six extant AA2
letters to JQA
in 1785, however,
were probably copied with little alteration from AA2
's journal, including much
of the present letter. AA2
's journal entries for 28 Sept. through 18 Dec. 1785,
printed in Jour. and
, :185–205, were also incorporated in a letter to JQA
which has not been found.
