4. I Bade You All Farewell

* I must note that Father's name is also Aaron. This letter is to Father, not brother Aaron. 


My Dearest, Aaron, 

By the time you are reading this, I am already dead. I am here to tell you some final things in the first of many letters. In a month's time, join the revolution. They will win. We will win. Have Angelica look after the children. 


And, Aaron, I cannot stress it enough. Please, take your time. Post a sign in town for a person to help Angelica. A young man named George will sign. Hire him. I don't think she will truly need the help, but she will need company. I feel awfully so to leave Angelica with all of my other children, but I put my greatest trust into her. I feel bad to thrust motherhood onto her at such a young age, but you must go, and she must learn.

Tell Angelica that I love her, and send her all of my hope. Aaron, show her this letter, but you must leave her another one. Tell her in it that if you don't make it, she must inherit the children. Now show below to her. 


Show this to her. Angelica- You are destined for greatness. I am sorry this is how you will have to remember me, but, as my firstborn child and only daughter (for now, I predict the new baby will be a girl), you will always have a special place in my heart, whether it beats or not. 


I am sorry if I may never have showed that to you. It may be one of my most deepest regrets. Love you siblings like I love you, and how I loved them; with the deepest and greatest love; a mother's love. It is inside you. It cannot be created or destroyed.


With My Greatest Love, A Mother's Love, and too my Dear Husband, and family.

I bade you all farewell.

Hannah Westshire Lexington
