“Pleasant. Mary and I went to the green. Called on Mrs. E. Brou. (sp?) Mary and myself attended the evening prayer meeting John waited upon us home. Mother has gone to Bridgewater Mr. Padelford carried her.” – Hattie E.F. D.
Notes: The “green” Hattie refers to here is Taunton Green, a park at the center of town.
