Editorial note: We present here a transcription of a diary attributed to Virginia H. Andrews, recently uncovered by Adam Morris. Andrews is known to have visited the Mount Lebanon Shaker community in company with Annie Ordway (aka Victoria Gratia) during this time. See Christian Goodwillie, “Heaven in a Hollow Earth: The Shaker Koreshan Connection,” American Communal Societies Quarterly 3, no. 2, (April 2009), for a full account of this trip, as well as images of Ordway and Andrews’s signatures in the North Family’s guest register.
