Diary of Claire Phillips
Have colonel where I want him. Madly in love with me . . . I know he’ll do anything I ask him now.
I don’t know how long I can take this face slapping. Twice tonight… Leg better today. But still swollen. God how I hate them.
Had to drink to the death of more and smile. Not easy.
Only bare necessities now. Everything stay[s] high. Hard to make both ends meet.
[feeling like] the girl in Rebecca,… this is a rich relation’s home, not mine… eating like a pig …everything tastes so good.
…so loud we must shout to be heard. We’re in a tight spot, but can move. Pray we come through safe.
