Scope and Content

The journal is written to 'dearest Sturges', her husband, who had been sent to India possibly linked to Clive's second term as Governor. The author dates from Warwick, though she is about to leave the locality at the end of the last entry, and on one occasion refers to herself in the third person as 'Jenny'.
