20. February 1st, 1776

Don’t worry, I am still alive, and so is Father. The past two weeks or so have been very hectic. Every day I wake up with Eliza and we do our schooling. Then at around noon I walk into town and get new medicine from the doctor for Father.


Mother has insisted on moving our guest bed into Father’s room, and she spends the whole day there. I feel like I barely see her or Father very much. However, Mother still does conjure up a family supper every night, for which I am very thankful for. All of us except for Father eat together. Even Alice, Thomas, Benjamin and Angelica now have moved next door and come for dinner on almost every Sunday.
