10. January 10th, 1776

George went into town today. He has been acting a bit odd- I know something is up. So I asked him. “‘Tis this girl.” He said. “Her name is Rachel, and she is beautiful.” I normally don’t like romance, but honestly I know mother has been worried. At 20, he should be married. I’m not saying that this “Rachel” will be the one, however.


I am the only one who asked, so therefore I only know and am not permitted to tell anyone, not even mother. I probably should not have written this down then. Mother stayed next to Father who was in bed all of today. Eliza played with Alexander. James went to the market.
