3. January 3rd, 1776

Father is getting worse I think. His fever has heightened. I asked mother to go check on him. We must ask permission. I assume mother doesn’t want any of my siblings or me to get sick either.

 

I sat on the edge of Father’s bed. Mother doesn’t sleep in the same room as him anymore. They barely spend any more enjoyable time together anymore, except for mother’s frequent heath check ins on him. I wonder if the neglect is what is really killing Father along with his disease.

 

On a different note, I played with Alexander today. I found a goose feather outside and tickled him with it, by the fire. I am writing with it now.
