Chapter 11.104 - Albany to Boston (continued)
Continued from 11.103- sequestered spots, embosomed among the hills, the simple inhabitants must surely live in peace with each other. Passed through Shakers Village, where live a community of Quakers, and where, I believe part of the medicinal herbs are raised which we see for sale. Owing to the swiftness of the cars, we saw but little of the village, and less of the inhabitants. Worcester has an excellent Lunatic Asylum. Saw many of the unfortunate inmates at the gratings, and many walking with their keepers on the balcony. They are treated with great kindness and many are soon well enough to return to their friends.
