MA 1302.2 is an 1841 transcription of Thoreau's original journal. Thoreau originally began his journal in two large volumes, of 546 and 396 pages respectively. These first two original volumes were transcribed into four smaller journals by Thoreau after 31 January 1841 (possibly in October-November 1841). Neither of the two original volumes is extant, although a few scatterd leaves from the first and Thoreau's parital indexes to both volumes survive. MA 1302.1 and MA 1302.2 (p. 1-73) consist of the 1841 transcription of the first original volume of the journal.--Cf. Broderick.
