16. January 16th, 1776

Today was a little warmer than usual for winter, so I put on my work dress and went outside with James. he examined the garden, and I wandered over to the side of the Hill that reach beyond our house. It was brown, and the grass was dry. Few remains of green grass poked out of the browns and grays.


I turned around and saw the doctor on his horse nearing the house. George, Eliza and Alexander were ushered out. I was sitting on the bench by the slightly Frozen string. Eliza came out with Alexander and her arms. We stared at the water trickle through the cracks of ice.
