Diary Entry #1

Last night I had a hard time before going to sleep. I was thinking about the Third Estate -especially peasants- how they manage their lives, and how they can feed their families. So, I decided today to go around and see how they are doing. While walking around, I met a mother of six. She was complaining about her need to feed the children. I looked around I saw a group of angry people near a bakery.I entered the bakery, I bought some bread. The price of the bread was really high. Now I know why the people were angry. I gave the bread to the woman. She was really happy but surprised. I wonder why. Maybe because nobles usually doesn't treat the poor well. Afterwards, I went to my office and found lots of new documents thatneed to review. I forwarded all of it to Michael. After two hours I went to Versailles to visit the king. When I arrived. I saw the king wearing his fancy clothes as usual. He was a great man. I enjoy discussing with him. I told him that every body is complaining about the high price of bread. I think he will do something about it. After the visit I went back home and had supper with
my family. It was a great day today

Diary Entry #2

August,4,1789
These days are the days of fear. Peasants are every where with their pitchforks and torches. I asked a peasant named Monique Petite for the reason.She told me that they are rioting over the uprising price of bread.
Today, in my way to work, I met Jacqueline Marseilles.She was in her way to work too. She looks very depressed. Being my friend I asked her about the reason. She told me that she is fearing the peasants uprising and many nobles are going to flee France. So, I understood from her that she may flee from France to protect her self and children. Anyway I did not feel the way she does. I believe that all citizens should be treated equally. So I planned to join the National Assembly and make a speech to get rid of the Old Regime. Unfortunately, my wife did not agree with the idea, I tried to persuade her but it seemed that she seemed really uncomforted with the idea and wanted to flee France like other emegres. I spend my day thinking what to do. Finally I decided to flee France for the safety of our lives.

Diary entry #3
We are in Austria. People here are happy and the government is settled. I hope France is the same. I contacted with Micheal to know what is going on in France. He told me that the Directory has chosen a general to command France’s army. I felt happy and hoped that he will improve the conditions there.
