Emigrating is nothing new in our family. My brother’s already there and two of my uncles, my mother’s brothers, Thomas and Alexander Buchanan went to Pennsylvania years ago when she was young.
Thomas got on very well and became a General and bought an estate somewhere in Pennsylvania. If I do half as well when I go there, I’ll be very well pleased.
Now we’ll head back across the landing and down the stairs to the front door. You can see that the landing’s nearly empty now, but when I was younger, there were so many of us in the house that there were a couple of beds here too.
The big chimney from the kitchen fire below helps to keep us warm.
Be careful on the stairs
