July

and there is no doubt we

proved a boon to many

members in the holiday

week. The shops being closed

and the scarcity of bread

enabled them to purchase

good potatoes + beans, straight

from the land, cheap. What

a refreshing sight to see the

men women + children, coming

over the hill to buy. We

were taxed to our utmost

morning, afternoon + night,

during that week. The fact

of us taking over 15£ gives one

an idea of the labor entailed,

what a wage we should have
