“Pleasant. Lizzie went to Rocky Point. Mary went to Myricks. I called on Mrs Steele. John passed the evening with me. enjoyed his company very much  Mrs Daniel Presbrey and Mrs Charles Baker called.”  – Hattie E.F. D.

Notes: “Rocky Point” most likely refers to Rocky Point Park, an amusement park on the ocean in Warwick RI which opened in 1847. (I have gone there a few times myself. It is now closed.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Point_Amusement_Park
