17. January 17th, 1776

The doctor stayed overnight in our guest bed, and mother sent George, James, Elizabeth, Alexander, and I to the market. James went to the Planter’s to examine the available seeds. George walked down to the docks with Alexander. Eliza ran off to Mr. Ronald’s store where William worked, and I didn’t have to guess what she was doing there.


I sat alone in the Town Square, and watched the people and horses pass by until we all of my siblings met up again with me. Families walked by, smiling. They walked past on cobblestones and bricks. I wished Father could have been there with me. It sounds weird, but we loved watching people. There were notices for war, and pamphlets flying around in the wind, some labeled Common Sense, which everyone seemed to have their hands on.
