“Rain. I accompanied John to Rocky Point had a very pleasant time considering the state of the weather the band accompanied John took tea with us and passed a short time with me.” – 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 myself have gone there a few times. It is now closed.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Point_Amusement_Park
