9. January 9th, 1776

I swear our house is an Open Door. Alice came back over today, it is becoming regular for her and Thomas to visit. If only it was possible for John-Philip to walk through that door. I want him awfully so even though I never met him I miss him.


Eliza and I studied all French, and practice numbers to 20, however, I always forget 4, 14, 16, and 17. I overheard Alice talking to mother she may be moving back to Philadelphia with Thomas, Benjamin and Angelica.Thomas is okay I guess. However, I do find it puzzling that my sister is married and has children while I can't even remember my French.
