17 I believe Mrs. Whiting has about concluded to take Eva and to leave Willy. Perhaps it is best. We are all very much attracted to her but she is such a task to manage and grows worse every day. So spunky and cross more so since her mother came. This morning who should come in but Will he was on his way to Franklin and stopped but a moment. Mr. Hill too was in. He says that I can write to him if I am not go to school. I would much rather do that than go to the Academy. If I can do so I propose myself to enter the sophomore class. I can more cheerfully give up going to school which I shall probably have to do anyway. This afternoon I rode up to Mr. Trowbridgeâ€™s. Lizzie could not go.
