This booklet contains miscellaneous, handwritten notes kept by Delaware College professor Elisha Conover, for the period 1897-1899. The notes consist of lists of expenditures by month during the two-year time period and undated entries on various subjects, such as etiquette and literature.
This small booklet is divided into two sections. The first contains lists of rhetorical points, selected passages from the Bible, Shakespeare, and other literary works, and an itemized budget. The second section, written from the back of the book and reversed in orientation, contains notes on the proper etiquette when sending letters of invitation.
