Day 3: July 5, 1863
It has been a quiet day today. No news yet and I figure my letter will get to my fiance in the next two days if he is still in Gettysburg. Today I went to the post office to see if any clothes had come in for repair, so I did some sewing. Then I decided that I wanted to work on my knitting skills and made one sock. I plan to make the other tomorrow and send it out to the soldiers. Mom needed me to help Father in the garden. We planted many crops. Father said one-fourth of our crops will go to the soldier hospital in town. Then Mom asked me to dry the eating utensils.
