2. January 2nd, 1776

Today is the day John-Philip died years ago. Mother was sad all day. We mostly stayed inside and mourned along with her. I wasn’t alive to witness it, but Alice was about 10. I've heard some stories from her. 


John-Philip was fourteen when he died. My mother and father were by his side. He had a rare illness, I’ve been told. Mother doesn’t really go into it that much. I think it might be what Father has. I can see the worry on her face whenever she check on Father. She methodically switches a cold rag or cloth with a warm one and places it on his forehead. I hope he will be okay, as Mother rhetorically has so much on her plate.
