The Ways of Farm Life in the 1900's By Mistin Grace The days get harder and harder as I start to grow up on the farm. Each day I get up at the crack of dawn and work till the sun sets in the west. As I trudge home to claim my supper, I think about what it would be like to live in a place where there are not back breaking chores waiting to be done every time I turn around. But I knew if I never lost hope, nor my strength, I would make it out all right. I know I'm young, but I am very independent, and can keep my head in a panic situation. Like when Ma and Pa got really low on our supply of food. My younger siblings were always whining about how hungry they were, so I went out to the creek and caught some fish. There were only a few and they were small, but it would get us through for a couple of days. I found that the creek came in handy, so I began going more often and getting what I needed. A lot of the times there would be berries that I could pick where they had grown by the bank when it was damp. Not many things have been going on since fall has rolled around, except of course getting food for my family still. I can see that Ma and Pa have been losing a lot of weight and every time I look at them I can see the sadness buried in their faces. But they won't be looking like that for much longer, due to the fact that I have found us a little place in town. It's more like a cottage I would say. There are not many people in our town, so we will not have any trouble finding jobs. There has already been an offer given to me, and it is a pretty complicated job, so there will be no arguing when Pa comes to help me. I am hoping that becoming a blacksmith at this age will do me some good, maybe a lot of good. Well I am growing up and it's getting harder, I am now 17 and have been through a lot in my time. I feel as if I am growing up too fast. I hope to be going off to another territory real soon, now that all my brothers and sisters are old enough to take care of themselves! Ma and Pa do not approve, but I am a young man and am fit to make a living and I plan to do it by panning gold. Well, I am doing mighty fine and have been panning gold for a mere 40 years now. I mean I am doing fine omitting my illnesses, and my hacking cough. Sometimes I think that I am going to lose my lungs. Lately been sitting away watching the days go by. My breath is getting shorter and the days longer, so to all my people I'm signing away. Much thanks to Bryant Creek for helping me and my family survive. Goodbye.
