Chapter 2.10 - Boston (continued)
Continued from 2.9- to help digestion, as an old gentleman told me at breakfast this morning. He said it was made of ground wheat with the finest and coarsest parts taken out (pohen I suppose). G[raham] bread has a sweet pleasant taste, but rather coarsish. Eggs are invariably eaten out of glass cups, and never out of the shell – could not get an egg cup if you asked for it.
Walked out again (the rain having ceased), looked at Faneuiel Hall.
Brattle Church in the wall of which is still to be seen the ball half embedded
Exchanges of beautiful granite, supported in front with minimal pillars - quite lofty - fine Corinthian capitals - for the centre, “The Eagle” hovering over the whole world - Liberty Cap etc_
 Meaning lost.
 Hall in Boston since 1742. Site of freedom speeches leading up to the Revolution, and is today on the Freedom Trail.
 This is the remains of a British Cannonball fired during the American Revolution.
