5. January 5th, 1776

Today is Benjamin’s birthday. He is only two, but I know he will make a great brother for Angelica. He received a top as a small gift that used to be my father’s.

 

On a different note, it snowed all day. I watched from the window by the fire. Alexander is asleep so we can finally have some peace. Mother has been tending to him all day. I guess she finally gets a break too.

 

I got a letter from my friend Abigail today. Elizabeth and I looked at it for a while. Abigail is moving back to Philadelphia, where we live in Pennsylvania. Eliza and I are so excited.

 

James is planning on what to plant for the spring already. And I know he cannot wait. I think he has decided on carrots for something new. Mother has been reading ever since she got Alexander to finally sleep. She seems so tired.
