After Lyddie and Charles harvest maple syrup in their home for a year, a letter arrived from their mother, who had left with their two younger sisters because she thought the Day of Judgement was coming. This letter states that she has arranged for CharlesĀ to work in baker's mill, and Lyddie to work in Cutler's Tavern as a maid, in order to earn money that her mother will eventually ask from her.
