which makes me think of home   I should not left the mill but there was a girle here and she 
said she would get me a chance in the shop and I spike to Amy4 about it but she did not say 
much about it and finley I left on my own hook and then she declaired right up and down that 
I should not go one step and you know that I wont be drove by any one so I went and have 
not seen her since
