[Elinor is still getting things from Mr. O’Neil, a large picture, an easter card, and 10.00.
In February she starts to mention Lucia Fletcher who was to marry Frank Wargo. It appears that she and Frank end up being divorced but having 3 or more children. She continues to describe a friendship with Lucia here who comes almost daily. Other names are Mr. Geo . Anthony (the washman on the Steamer Shenango) including a rumor that he married Hellen Arscott the ship keeper of the Schoonmaker, after a 4 month acquaintance. Perhaps this was a scandel.
When she and Elbert have chickens, they usually buy a brood of 100 baby chicks rather than having one of the hens hatch babies. But here she says her hen hatched out 11 chickens from 13 eggs. She says she is getting almost 24 eggs per day, probably worth 1.00/day if sold.
