    Miss Black is interested in the scenery, local customs and the flora of Switzerland (she includes a number of pressed flowers in her journal). However, her main interest lies in recording the routine activities of herself and her companions.

    At the back there are a number of newspaper cuttings, (folios 75-82) chiefly obituaries of her grandfather the Reverend Edward Black (died 1845) and of her father the Reverend William McMillan Black (died 1901).
