NEW HAMPSHIRE, THE GRANITE STATE THE GOVERNOR ENDICOTT ROCK AT THE WEIRS In 1652 surveyors employed by Governor Endicott of Massachusetts marked a bowlder to indicate the supposed headwaters of the Merrimack River. The bowlder is now preserved under a granite canopy (see, also, text, page 258). The Weirs is a pleasure resort on Lake Winnepe saukee (see, also, illustration, page 308). AS IN GOVERNOR WENTWORTH'S DAY One of the projects of the Wolfeboro Historical Society is the restoration and preservation of the Clark House, built about 1790, to its original colonial style in furniture and fittings. This set of old pewter and tableware, with horn handles, is of the Revolutionary period. The hostess's fichu is more than ioo years old and belonged to her great-grandmother.
