i Mr. Editor: I find that I omitted in |
my former letter any allusion to tbe
s entrance of tbe battleship Raleigh into
Charleston harbor. While we were
waiting on the pier Wednesday morning
for admission on tbe boat, the
^ booming of cannon announced her
approach. Presently we could see the
f smoke from the guns and then indiss
tinctly could outline the big lead-1
colored monster slowly being towed
^ into pert. I{ was an exciting scene,
and I could but reca'l the scene* of
thirty-eight years ago, when I stood
near Vinegar Hill on Morris Island
and listened to the booming of big
guns in the attack and defend of Fort
Snmter, and watched wi.h interest
and emotion the progress of tbe first
e big artillery duel in the war of the
703t cause. Presently we were on tho
boat, and as she glided smoothly across
the Cooper River we watched intently
the approach toward anchorage cf this
agent in the destruction of the Spanish
fleet in the harbor of Manila.
Thursday morning, wishing to get
ahead ot the crowd that wo felt eure
would be on hand, we boarded the
electric ctr f r Magnolia cemetery.
Severa' f .,ur parly had never s-cen
this baao'.iful city of the dead, and
> those of us who had, were perhaps
even more anxious than they to take
in afresh its solemn loveliness. Its
natural scenery is grand, being inter
2 spersed with pretty little lakes and
inlets, than, too, the majestic live oak
.t and lovely magnolias are the pride,
not only of Charleston, but also of the
State. And the hand of art has been
lavish in its decorations, and on every
hand are to be seen tastily arranged
e and neatly trimmed shrabbery ornamenting
the scores of well laid off and
diligently kept family plats. There
^ are numbers of tbe finest granite and
marble monuments, also mausoleums
nnmmno cnlonrlid VftlllfS for the
reception of the dead. In onr rambles
and admirations one of onr p^rty remarked
that if a person fell prepared
for death and expscted to be laid in

My lettar would be too long were
to undertake special mention of
tithe of the exquisite chiseling an
scolptare ornamenting the profiuio
of monnman.s. I will venture t
speak of only two, which impresse
me. One is'a large vattlosaake coile
around the marble shaft of an ol
Revolutionary officer. It strikes m
every time I see it as being a Strang
design for an ornament to the reetin
place of the dead.- I wouldn't war
any snakes on mine. The work ot tt
sculptor though is well executed. Ti
other is over the grave of Katie Birc
and represents a woman in life 8I2

seem to be the very perfection of ar

with a life-like lustre and expressic
of eyes that I have never seen an;

We were all anxious to see whei
Dr. Hanahan was laid, and after dil
gent search and inquiry we found tt

tear and others dropped a flower c
