Elizabeth Simcoe's diaries have been transcribed and annotated by many biographers. In comparing the original documents to contemporary publications it was discovered that, in many cases, the journals have not been published exactly as written.
The diaries have often been changed to clarify details relating to the people, places, and things that she encountered on her journey. In addition, Mrs. Simcoe's grammar, punctuation and spelling has often been edited to make the text easier to read. Inconsistencies in spelling also arise between titles recorded on her paintings and her diary entries.
However, for the purposes of this exhibit, the material has been recorded as it exists on the original materials.
