Description This journal covers 1 January to 15 May 1882 and 29 March to 17 October 1883. From the first of this journal to the fifteenth of May 1882, B. H. Roberts was serving an L.D.S. church mission in Tennessee. At the end of each month's daily entries is a summary of the miles traveled and by what means, the number of meetings held, remarks on his reading for the month, and comments on the weather. Roberts was released from his mission in May of 1882. At this point the character of the writing changes and he notes that he is writing in 1883 to bring his journal up to date. After doing a summary of the year 1882 he again begins daily entries on 29 March 1883 when he returns to Tennessee. The 1883 section contains no monthly summaries. The journal is interspersed with prayers, quotations, and poetry. Throughout the journal he refers to his "scrapbooks" by volume and page number for reports and minutes of conferences or for other items which relate to particular incidents recorded in his journal
