A Merrimack Reverie
This short passage serves as a romantic discourse on nature and time, as told from the perspective of a mill girl during a break from her work. The writer, disclosed simply as “Abigail,” finds inspiration by looking out upon the Merrimack River. As many mills were situated along its banks to take advantage of the waterpower that it provided, the Merrimack was a familiar landmark to mill operatives at this time.For more information on this item, see the AAS Catalog.
