THE BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD IS MY GRANDFATHER'S LIBRARY.
At that time, most girls could not go to school, but boys were allowed. This was the first time Abigail found that girls in colonial America didn’t have the same rights as boys.This inspired her determination to defend women's rights.
Fortunately, her mother taught Abigail and her sisters reading, writing, and arithmetic, as well as how to cook and sew.
Abigail’s father and grandfather both had big libraries, so Abigail always went to read books such as plays, history, philosophy and law.
Abigail spent the most of her time in the library, so she could often see the visitors. One of the visitors was John. The first time she met john, she was 15 years old, and John was 24 years old.
