Description

Excerpt from The Children of Old Park's Tavern: A Story of the South Shore The stage-coach which ran between Boston and Plymouth stopped there daily, and it came dash ing up to the door now, bringing the first comers to the c'nvention. These came from Hingham, the remotest town in the county, and they would spend the night preceding and the night following the convention at the tavern. Railroads were un known as yet, and almost everybody came to the convention, as they went everywhere else, in their 'own carriages. The coach was crowded inside and out. This was a Whig convention, and the stage driver, who was a Whig, had tied red, white, and blue ribbons on the harnesses of his six horses, which gave to the turnout a gay and festive air.
