The doctor came today. He checked on father and gave mother some ideas of medicines for father. Most of them were herbs. Mother decided on Ginger to clear father's headaches.  so I went down to town with James. Eliza insisted on staying home. It felt so nice to get some fresh air finally.


I ran with James, my skirts blowing, until he James, insisted that I should stop, as mother “ might die” rhetorically if she found out. it was fun while it lasted. We got the ginger but halfway home realized we forgot sugar, so we will be back tomorrow.
