It contains the remainder of the diary text (162,000 words) written in the Letheringsett years 17811809, but omitted from Diary 2, Diary 3, and Diary 4. (Diary 1, written at Coltishall 17731781, contains the diarist’s unabridged text.) It is intended to be read only in conjunction with the other Diary  volumes.

The transcription follows the same editorial method as in The Diary of Mary Hardy. Unlike other publications by Burnham Press this volume has very few illustrations and is without annotations, bibliography and index. More details can be found at The Remaining Diary of Mary Hardy 1773–1809.
