I had originally planned to take the whole week off to visit friends in Maryland and research the Hoggatt side of my family while in Philadelphia. Instead, I got the chance to ride up with friends and save quite a bit on transportation and lodging, but with no extra days.
|Chris Densmore, curator of Friends Historical Library|
I really need to research at home first, and plan well when I finally do get back to Philadelphia.

Susanna, one of the archivists, took us down to the other levels and showed us around the collection.
The curator has his own "peaceable kingdom" in his office, with figures his children made.
More on the painting later.
