“John returned to Camp Meeting went up to the depot with me. went up to Mrs Chace Lizzie and I went to the green.” – Hattie E.F. D.
Notes: I don’t know where John traveled for the camp meeting, but see links below for more on the 19th c Revivalist camp meetings. The family later had a cottage in Oak Bluffs (Martha’s Vineyard, MA) and so it is possible that John attended the meeting in that location, which had a large annual event. See Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association:
The “green” Hattie refers to is Taunton Green, the center of town. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taunton_Green_Historic_District
