26. February 7th, 1776

I have been thinking a lot about Rose and Pearl and John-Philip and William lately. I guess Liza is too. I think Mother knows Alice told Eliza about Rose and Pearl, so we haven’t really talked much lately. I also think Alice knows that I know what she told Eliza. Sometimes you can just tell, I guess?


Anyways, I mostly just did some exercises on my slate and Eliza on hers. But my mind kept wandering to how I might feel if I were George. Does he know he was a twin? I wonder how I would feel if I knew I had a dead twin and I were living. How would mother tell him? He almost serves as a second Father these days after all.


We did our schooling until noon, when we had dinner, and did more schooling. Then we ate supper around 6, and went to bed a little while after it went dark. It always feels nice to know that Alice and Thomas are right next door. I wonder what it would be like if her or George or any of my family were away. I am glad that they are all here with me.
