Report of Entertainment dorn
To the Foreman and Members of the
Indepcndant Elliott Hook and Lad
der Company :
The undersigned, the Comm'^tce
appointed by the Company as the
Committee of Arrangements for an
Entertainment to raise funds for the
benefit of the Company ask ...vc to
submit the following report .
In accordance with our instruc
tions end iu view of the immediate
necessities upon the Company to raise
funds to remove the building pur
chased from the County and to place
it upon their lot, tho Committeo de
termined to have an entertaiumcnt
at the earliest practicable monion'.
Our inquiries showed that tho Or
angeburg Glee Club, in reciprocation
of some courtesies extended to them
by the Company, were willing to al
low us the use of i bo Masonic Hall,
which they hud leased, and also to
furnish us the music of their Brass
Band, tree of expense. Professor
Berg also consented to loan bis piano
and to perform it upon the same terms
To the club aud to Professor Anton
Berg the thanks of the Committee
and of the Company are due for their
generous kindness. Several of our
citizenspromptly pledged their ai l
to carry out their design: Chief
among these was our honored first
Foreman, an honorary member of the
"Elliotts" Capt. John A. Hamilton
We cannot too highly rate the prompt
and energetic assistance of this gen
ticmnu. He especially deserves bur |
recollection and thanks,
All depended now upon ttie ladies
?would they help us ? That ques
tion has been again answered most
Your c mini I tee called a mce ing
of the ladies and gentleman willing
to assist us on Monday afternoon,
April 23rd; at the Firemen's Hall.
The response to that call was over
whelmingly large and generous
The ladies took hold of the work;
divided its details among themselves
with such zeal and spirit,*J.hat the
committee looked upon their design
as vn fait accompli. The time was
very short for preparation and this
the indies felt seriously. But when
informed of our circumstances they
threw their whole loving hearts into
the task of preparing us a festival on
Thursday evening of the same week,
the 2bTh of A pril.
That evening gathered its shadows
most propiti usly for us, and when
the 11nl 1 was lighted and the good
people of Orangeburg began to assem
hie the labors b. the two days of inter
viils hone forth in Magic beauty. Their
fair hands had been busy for us and

in most abounding success.
The next proceeds of the various
departments, a statement of which is

the short notice and tho pro-occupa

another worthy cause, our success
was beyond all expectation. This
pecuniary success was equalled only

In conclusion tho Committee
recommend tho adoption of the follow

Resolved, That tho "Elliotts" feel
and hereby ssay to express their
deep and lasting obligations for the
triumphant success with which they
passed through, a crisis in their his
