When Eliza's older brothers George and James do escort service between Dartmouth and Colin Grove, the distance is twice two and a half miles. Sometimes they head back immediately.
Betsy and Mary Ann went to town this morning; they did not get home till late this evening. . . . George came home with the girls and returned home again. ( S21)

James came up for them [Miss Macy, Mary, and Eliza], and they have just gone. They will a dark walk. -- We have had a very fine day. ( S26 )
