Bditor Record-Prcsf: As iny sub
scriptoon has expired, I inclose :
t check for renewal.
I read with pleasure io your last
week's ol tho surpriso birthday
dinner given Mr. Gordon G. Ham.
niond. I am glad he is treated so
kindly by his childrcu in his old
age. Gord and I were boys together
something more than half a century
ago. I lived nwhilo with him and
his mother. She was a mighty good
old hidy and treated mo very kindly,
Gord was three years older than I
and nhout ten or twelve yean, larger.
I was an orphan boy and bavo no
recollection of father or mother; had
no money, no home, uo clothing, no
friends, no anything but kicks, kutls
and knocks; aud Gordon bless his
soul! was not altogether guiltless of
this patttime. Yes, Gordiu isa good
fellow, and I am proud that his
children tu'it him thus kindly in his
declining dajf. May they ever "riso
up to call him blessed."
1, to'j, c.tu truly say my children
aro kind t.i me. Throe weeks ago
loday I celebrated my till i h birthday.
I liavo ten grown up children nnd
they all, except one who live, in
Huidin, Kentucky, were here to eat
turkey with 1110 on that day. My
miii.s and sons in law surprised me at
the diutior table by presenting mo a
gold tilled Walt ham watch, 21 jewels,
and a gold chain and charm,
the whole costing $37. Though I
did uot cat it up, I enjoyed the
watch equally as much as they did
the turkey. My sous and
