31. February 12th, 1776

Today was fun, surprisingly. Since Father has been getting better by the minute, we have resumed schooling. It was nice to have a normal day for once in awhile. Father can walk again. I hope to take him to the theater soon, perhaps for his birthday.


I woke up early and Eliza and I did our studies. First we did French and then Latin and Greek, which a tutor came over to help us with. Alexander seemed interested so we taught him the first three numbers in French, un, deux, and trois. He seemed to catch on pretty easily. Too bad I can’t learn my numbers as well as Elizabeth or even him. Father sat at his desk and wrote all day. I also saw Mother reading with him this morning.
