We got a letter from Alice today. She had her baby, a girl, named Angelica, after my mother. My mother felt honored to be the namesake. I also went down to the store. I gazed upon the piles and stacks of sugars and teas. They were all lined up in neat rows, and it pleased me.


I also got this journal today. Mother said that if I went down to the store and did the shopping, I could pick out what I wanted with the extra money. I am surprised Elizabeth didn’t want to come with me. She normally does, we’re sisters, after all.
