“Pleasant. Have been up to Mrs Chace’s this morning Mr Harlow and Mr Willett took tea here and passed the night went down to see the boat come in. Rain in the evening and during the night.” – Hattie E.F. D.
Notes: Hattie and her family lived in the Weir Village neighborhood of Taunton and she most likely went to see the boat come up the Taunton River to The Weir. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weir_Village,_Massachusetts
