January 25 – One lamp was all our lighting

“I celebrate the anniversary of the day I left my mother’s house to go and set up house at the Mission. My camp-bed was placed in the small passageway which leads to the library: it was then a large room used as a bedroom. It was also our community room. One lamp was all our lighting and, when it was time for bed, it was placed in the doorway to give light to all three of us.”
