“Pleasant. I carried Wilkie Shirtlief down to call on Mrs James Presbrey. took tea at Mrs Shirtliefs Mother and I went down to see the boat come in. John and I went up to the green to hear the band play enjoyed it very much.” – Hattie E.F. D.
Notes: Hattie and her family lived at Weir Village, where they likely went down to see the boat come in. “During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, ocean-going vessels would dock at Weir Village and was a vital part of the city of Taunton’s economy, which included brickmaking, iron, textiles and machinery. Weir Village was also an important early transport hub for grain leaving the interior areas of southeastern Massachusetts for export.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weir_Village,_Massachusetts
