DescriptionThese diaries cover the period 8 January 1871 - 28 Jun 1913.

Constance Maynard refers to these as a record of 'outward' life, as they include activities, actions and occurrences without the emotion and thought that is included in the Greenbook diaries.

The diary is dated at the beginning of each week, using only the astrological symbol for the day for each daily entry.

Therefore where an event or moment of interest is detailed in an item description, the date given is the week beginning that it is mentioned in.

The diaries remain in the order that they were written where possible, although some dates overlap across the diaries.

These diaries contain astrological symbols as part of the date to indicate the day. For instance the symbol for Saturn is used for Saturday.

The diaries also include use of the @ symbol. Constance Maynard seems to be using this in place of the word 'about'. This is consistent throughout these diaries.

Other symbols are used occasionally throughout this series, which appear to be shorthand writing.
ArrangementThis series is arranged by original order, which is chronogically.
