AN EXCITING DONATION
In 1957, Mrs. Chase, a chapter member, reported that a ship’s Thermometer had come into her possession. Said thermometer reportedly had been on the USS Constitution. After writing to the Boston Navy Yard, a man was sent to retrieve the instrument which is mounted on a wooden frame 31” long, the mercury is protected by a glass cylinder and the scale runs to 170. The Navy Yard authorities authenticated the thermometer and it was placed on the ship with a card reading “Presented by Pemaquid Chapter DAR, Lincoln County, Maine”
