The small handwritten notebook contains student names and attendance notations for January and February, as well as debt marks for whispering and a count for how many words each student missed in spelling. Also included is a list of who the teacher boarded with and on what dates, as well as diary entries noting the weather, when school was in attendance, and other daily activities.
