Oxon Hill, Md. Mae Bayne Tennant ,
:ame to this part of Virginia (be
tween Leesburg and Middleburg) from
Washington 30 years ago as a bride,
>nd has made a place that her many
friends know can never be filled.
In thinking over early recollections
3f Virginia sporting events they are
>11 associated with her. She had such
a happy life then, and she and her
husband. David B. Tennant, took part
in or were at everything of impor
tance that went on.
A young, handsome and happy cou
ple, their house was always a de
lightful place to go, and was filled
with young people. David Tennant,
with Arthur Chichester, W. A. Metx
ger, E. B. White, Henry Fairfax, Wil
liam Eustis and a number of others,
organized the Loudoun Hunt Club,
snd David Tennant was elected the
first master of the hunt*in 1905.
He hunted his own hounds and was
a born huntsman and horseman, the
riding of his wonderful' horse Jubilee
in horse shows is still talked of in
sporting circles. He died some years
ago, and Mae Bayne Tennant has car
ried on in such a courageous way that
she has been an inspiration to all of us.
No matter who was in distress or trou
ble she was the first to come, her own
sorrows put aside in helping others.
And when at times our burdens seemed
too hard to bear a visit to or fiom
Mae, and her outlook on life, made
things seem brighter to us, for her
iheerfulness and bravery was great.
Mr. and Mrs. David Tennant had
,wo children—Jack Tennant, who died
ft few years ago, and Anne Tennant,
who is now Mrs. J. Southgate Morison
of Baltimore. Md., and Virginia. Mrs.
Tennant’s brother is Dr. Breckenridge ;
Bayne of Salubria, Oxon Hill, Md. ,
The sorrowing faces of the many
who loved Mae Tennant filled the lit
tle church yesterday. We left her in ,
the old cemetery there, amid a '
bower of roses, Spring flowers of all ]
kinds, lilies, Southern smilax and vlo- ’
lets—her favorite color—and with 1
heavy hearts we came back to Vir
ginia, which will never be the same
without her. t

Church and at the cemMery.
