Commonplace Book...Caroline Cowles Richards (1853)

April 1 -
...We go to school to Miss Zilpha Clark in her own house on Gibson Street...I like Abbie Clark the best of all the girls in school excepting of course my sister Anna.
Before I go to school every morning I read three chapters in the Bible.  I read three every day and five on Sunday and that takes me through the Bible in a year...
