steward at 5, to announce our arrival at Fall River. The first train left at 5:30 and tho' we did not try we were just able to catch it - & were glad afterward. The East looked pleasant to my sleepy eyes. But Helen Davis' bright face looked pleasant- er when she met us at the station and took us up to breakfast and showed us pieces of the Public Gardens thro' the windows & between the building. We took a car over to the B & A station & bought tickets and checked our bags to Newtownville, tho' Helen rather insisted I should leave one to carry - as everyone carried them in Boston (as I soon found out) and even the baggage man opened his eyes and said "This one too?" We proceeded thro' the Network of Boston's Wash- ington St. scrambling about here & there on the narrow side walks and expecting every moment to come to the end of the street - which always didn't end but turned again, another way. Finally we emerged on Tremont St. and beheld The Common! Dare I write it?
