Sylvia's Diary: January 1802 Highlights


  • Sylvia continues her tradition of sweeping the meeting house at least once a month. 
  • In addition to attending meetings (church) three times, she attended a conference in the evening. 
  • Sylvia continued to attend a special ciphering (math) school that was taught by a Mr. Botsford in the evenings.
  • By far, Sylvia's most wrote about activity was once again knitting (15 mentions this month), followed closely by sowing (11 mentions this month).
  • In the later half of the month, Sylvia spins heavily (9 times in 11 days).
