Colonial Hatter

Today I made 35 hats.I think that being a hatter is getting easier. Actually I take that back, everything was blurry.I also felt weak.My friends told me it was all the mercury,but I think I’m sick.I got paid 5$.So I bought some land from the indians.But us hatters have to work all day until lunch then we have 1 hour of free time then we go back and work till the sun goes down.My son can relate.He’s 19 and works same time as me.He’s a glass maker,but I don’t know much about his job because we work all day.My son and I go hunting every week though.We normally catch a deer or rabbit.But not much.I normally make beaver skin hats.I occasionally sell the hats as well.Life is hard in the new land but we’re surviving.

  1. Wow! 35 hats is impressive! I wouldn’t worry about the blurry vision, or weakness though, unless a member of the rabbit family tries to get you to have tea with him.
