30. February 11th, 1776

So I know it is kind of silly, but I watched Mother and Father again today. I now know Mother’s big secret, and I know she’ll have to tell Father eventually. And, by the way, I’m sorry. I didn’t intend for this journal to be an account of my Mother and Father crying, and people dying. I just know that someone could easily find this someday and this something that could outlive me when I am gone.


Anyways, so Mother told Father her secret today. I mean, Father seemed happy I guess. He may have had negative emotions, but may not have shown them because he knew it would stress out Mother more. So he refrained. Even though he is sick, and especially because he is sick, he knows that the last thing he wants to do is make Mother worry more.
