Life As a White Male

Colonial Williamsburg

By jasmine n
Hi I am John and I am being sent by King James 1 to the New World. I will be an indentured servant of Sir William. It is 1776 and we are in Williamsburg. He is so lazy he won't even work the as the brick maker so I have to make bricks in the cold with no shoes on.



Today I have to go get spoons for dinner tonight. You'd be surprised by haw rich master is. He has enough silver to get 7 spoons from the silversmith. WOW!!
I have to work to tend the tobacco fields. I had to pick 13 plants and hang them to dry. After that I have to crumple them in to really tiny seeds. Then I pack them into big barrels.
