I had to resign my teaching position as I am to be married and married women cannot be teachers, which seems a foolish rule to me. I received my Inspectors report today and it was very good. I have written it down here. They say they are sorry to see me go.
I must admit I am sore afraid of this step I am taking. I have been happy as an independent woman earning my own living, but until I came to live with Nell’s family, I was sometimes lonely. I hope this marriage is the right decision and not some rash and foolish thing I am doing.
I will be married at the turn of the century, which Nell says will be an adventure. T J will give me away as Pa is too ill to come to Sudbury. That makes me very sad but we will see Ma and Pa when we travel south to Montreal after the wedding. Afterwards, we will live in Dinorwic for some time. Robert will stay there as a trader with the HBC until he is accepted at Queen’s Medical School. I am somewhat apprehensive but I know now that I cannot bear to be parted from Robert. All will be well.
