Robinson Escapes to the Cape for Independence Day

O little-know facts — how Robinson attracts them!

Pilgrims rocked ashore here, before Plymouth Rock.

The word scrimshaw is of unknown origin.

The stock name of the archaic two-lane main road? Route 6A. Really
it’ s Old King’ s Highway.

Some facts are useless: the paper bag was invented in Dennis.

Some facts are not: Wellfleet’ s town clock sings out ship’ s time.

19th century Americans observed only three holidays. The Fourth of
July was one.

O witty aperçus — how Robinson accrues them!
