Journal of Mother Duchesne, 1818-1840

October 26, 1819 ~ Mother Duchesne writes in her journal, "Our days are filled with work for the children and our spiritual duties, along with chores to which we were formerly unaccustomed.  We have frequently to gather wood for fuel in the forest, for when we have a visitor we burn up our whole provision in a single day.  We gather corn, apples, vegetables in the garden, and when the children go for a walk they often bring back wild fruits and farm produce."
