8. January 8th, 1776

I asked Mother if I could go into town with Eliza today. She said no, because we had to watch over Alexander while she was in bed. I don’t think it is fair how George and James get to roam and prance around all day and that me and Eliza have to stay inside.


Eliza seems okay with it however. She said at least she can work on her stitches while we watch over Alex. Today is Father’s second day of taking his medicines. I think there is a prospect of hope for him. The doctor wrote and said in a week he may be lifted from bedrest. Maybe then I can take him into town to go see the theater. I have a feeling I think he would like it.
