The Extended Eastern Tour in the Summer and Autumn of 1863

19 August 1863 - September 1863

On Wednesday, August 9, 1863, the White family took the train bound for Boston. At Topsham, Stockbridge Howland purchased a brand-new organ, so that Henry could play and sing. Adelia Patten, who accompanied the family, fitted well into the family.

While in the home there in Topsham, where he and Ellen had first set up housekeeping when Henry was a newborn babe, James recalled those experiences of 16 years before.
