Ways to Remember:
Notes (Part Three)
Being alone at work, Lyddie borrowed the book Betsy was reading to her from the lending library in her spare time when she wasn't working in the weaving room
Lyddie went to buy the same book Betsy helped her read at a shop
In this chapter of Lyddie, Lyddie is getting used to life in the factory, she likes it there. Everyday she looked forward to Betsy, her friend, reading to her. Lyddie soon found out that the book Betsy was reading her cost Betsy 5 cents a week. Even though Lyddie was supposed to be saving up, she gave Betsy 10 cents for "Oliver's" rent because she felt bad. Betsy was also saving up for Oberlin, a college that accepted girls, a real college. Diana, Prudence, Betsy, and Amelia were all making plans to go home and going off for the holidays. Lyddie stayed at the factory because since she had agreed to a full year contract at the factory, thus meaning could not leave. Diana knew Lyddie would enjoy the extra money while she was gone. Over the month of July, Lyddie borrowed the book that Betsy was reading to her before. This time she was reading it herself, piece by piece. In the last days of the month, Lyddie bought the book and read it.
Lyddie saw a woman at church who she believed was Diana
She callled out to her but the woman had ignored her leaving Lyddie to believe she may have not been Diana after all.
