I am now teaching in Sudbury and enjoy it very much. I go home to TJ and Nell and the children each night and the cook always has a good hot meal ready for us. I have gained a little weight as Nell said it would help me deal with the cold and it does. Mind you, a warm house also helps.
Nell has asked several young men from Sudbury to come to tea on a number of occasions. She is concerned that I do not seem to be interested in any of them. They are none of them very clever and all are quite clear that they are looking for a wife to look after them and have their children and of course I would not be allowed to continue working after marriage. One fellow went so far as to say he liked me well enough but was bit worried that I had too much learning. What does he expect from a school teacher?
