“Pleasant. The sabbath school went to Rocky Point. Called on Mrs James Paskey (sp?). John passed the evening 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
