This is the last entry from William Viers Bouic's (my Great Great Grandfather) law school diary. He wrote in it from 1867-1870. If you look at the original size version it's legible and an interesting read.

    I saw this photo on lifehacker, and as a law student in the midst of my first year finals was greatly intrigued. I am also a preacher, and couldn't help but appreciate the deep sense of theology your ancestor wrote from. Thanks for sharing.

    Brilliant last line; "strange. how very strange!!" Just what I thought looking at those Greek characters.

    Thank you for this great picture (and thank you for licensing this CC). I used it in a post about Diaries of a New Employment in my personal, non commercial Code Cop blog. It was the perfect picture for the subject of a diary. Thanks again.
