After leaving Sunshine Pass so many things have happened. These might be the very last words I say. . . .My baby girl Katrina is only two months old, and she might have to live without her mother or even die young. Poor baby girl. She is the only thing I hope to live for. . . .After what happened to Michael. . . .Oh, Michael, you were so young! Well, besides that, Clarence’s dog got bitten by a rabid coyote! Poor dog, had to get his little leg cutoff. . . .I don’t think I would ever be able to bear the pain of seeing by own dog's leg cut off.
Well, now we're heading around Snow Pass. (I never agreed to that, but I’m a nice person so I’m going to let it go.) I am so weak right now. I don’t even have enough strength to finish this diary entry. . . .But the nerve of Minnie to want my 9 year old son Matthew! I mean, my little Matthew! I would never give up my own baby child! (Even though he’s no longer my baby.) Even though she lost her son, she can’t have mine!
Now I have used up all my energy on how mad I was so now I must end my diary entry. I hope I don’t die. I hope my family thinks of me when I’m gone. My goodness, I hope I live to see my family.
