Honoria's Entries:

November 12. Candles made, flax spun. We are short on cornmeal and salt, but we will get through the winter. Last night an alarm; wolves attack Jacob Smallwood as he returned from the forest. I treated the wound with whortleberry and sallow bark, but it is deep and I am afraid. After coming home I cast the runes. I have told no one but Thomas the results.
December 20. Wolf Trouble at the Smallwood's' again. We heard the screams a few minutes ago, and Thomas said it was time. He made the bullets yesterday. He has loaded his rifle and we will walk over. If we are spared, I will write again.
December 21. Went over to the Smallwood's' last night. Jacob sorely afflicted. Wolf killed. We will bury Jacob in the little graveyard at the foot of the hill. May his soul find peace in death.
