gathered the recollections and memories of
pioneer days ancrparticularly ox the family
who this day renewed their acquaintance
with the past by connecting with it the pres

men gathered on the lawn, still more men
and women Inside the pleasant home, and
an aggregation of young people who played
croquet made up the gathering. At two
o'clock tables under a canopy were set with
a most elaborate dinner, roast pigs, roast
turkeys, fruits, pastry, etc., a spread that
might well have been credited to a Detroit
caterer. After dinner the party was as
sembled in the parlor where the Rev. Fair
formally extended the congratulation of
those present and made the presentation of
tokens of regard from friends and neighbors.
