Today the doctor came over to check on Father. He gave him orders of bedrest, and some medicine. Mother hasn’t talked about it or mentioned it at all day today, however.


George had been working in town all day to make some extra money. I went down to town. They are replacing the torn up cobblestones on Chestnut street which is a good thing.  I also walked down to the newly being built theater. IIt is gorgeous. George said at dinner today that he rode his horse all the way down to the docks, and he saw the new supplies for the theater coming in on boats.
