Day 13–June 29–Another Day at the Library
Today was another rainy day, and we really needed another day at the Mitchell Library, so we took the train in and spent another fruitful day at the library. I spent more time with guild records, and ended up reading a very interesting history of penal transportion to America before the revolution. Convicts were essentially slaves and conditions were so bad that second time offenders who had been previously transported to America would advocate for execution rather than another trip to America.
This was another day when we appreciated good rain gear.
