Sketch #1 March 24 th , 1798 Hello. My name is William Pead but most people call me Bill. I am eight years old (but I’ll be 9 soon) My mum told me that I needed to keep a journal and wanted me to start now. See, she says I will be getting “inoculated” in a few days by Dr. Jenner. I wasn’t sure what she meant, but Dr. Jenner explained it to me just this morning when he asked how my journal was coming along. He told me that inoculation was something that grownups were doing so that they wouldn’t get smallpox. He said he is going to stick a little bit of cowpox inside of me so that I would never get sick from smallpox. It is going to hurt a little bit because the doctor is going make small cuts to put the disease in. I was pretty scared but he told me not to be. Dr. Jenner said this was going to help me a lot. He also told me that little William Summers from down the street just got inoculated, and he’s only five! If he can do it, I know that I can. March 28
