27. February 8th, 1776

I know it may sound kind of stupid, but it has become my habit to watch Mother and Father together. Books are expensive and we haven’t got the money or time for the theater, so watching Mother and Father like I used to watch Eliza and William is like my own romance novel or play. It’s beautiful, and free.


Alexander fell from the third step upstairs today. Don’t worry however, he is all good. Father’s health is increasing and we are all very happy. He finally ate some soup and bread by himself, and we got some medicine from the doctor. He also stood by himself and walked to the door from his bed and back again. We are very proud and could not be happier. We hope and pray that his health only gets better.
