Thurs., 8/21 Worked from early morning till late at night sewing and ironing and never felt tired. I have not worked so hard in many a day for I feel not how necessary I am to my family and try to do all that I disliked as a girl so Rose will not have to hate those tasks.
Fri., 8/22 Mending and cleaning, oh me, I feel as though I can never make up for the days I ran away to work and play. Worked hard rest of day.
