"At any rate, Lyddie looked up from the pot of oatmeal she was stirring over the fire and there in the doorway was a massive black head,the nose up and smelling,the tiny eyes bright with hungry anticipation"(1).
Come on Charlie time to work.
Lyddie's family were all together.A bear was in her house and she had to be fearless and save her family.
Alright, Ms. Phinney.
A couple of months later. Lyddie's mom left and took Agnes and Rachel with her. She also left the responsibilities of the farm to Lyddie and Charlie.
Lyddie I need some help on the dishes.
Alright I'm here
The letter said,"Dear Lyddie, The world hav not come to the end yit.But we can stil hop.meentime i hav hire you out to M.Cutler at the tavern and fer yr. brother to bakers mill..." (9)
Lyddie's mom sent both Lyddie and Charlie to work to help their mom and sisters with money.
Ugh why did I come here
Charlie was sent to work to be a apprentice in Baker's Mill.
Lyddie was sent to work in Cutler's Tavern, she mostly works with the cook Triphena.
"in late May,when i headed home to the farm for the summer"(25)
Lyddie decides to leave Cutler's Tavern because she doesn't get a good wage, so she decides to work in the Lowell Mills. That was her mistake.
