The Reunion.
But little could be said of the re
union in detail, although taken as a
whole in spite of the torrents of rain
which fell the veterans passed two
days with very enjoyable results.
The village people decorated in quite
an elaborate manner as usual ar 1
prepared for the expected torch-light
procession. Floods of water came
down and a good many had shut
their houses and places of business
and gone to bed when word was re
ceived that the procession was com
ing. The line of march was some
what abbreviated but under the cir
cumstances the procession was a suc
cess with inspiring music from the
Johnson and Waterbury bands. The
attendance on Friday was the largest
of any first day of reunion held and
if good weather had followed there
would have been the largest attend
ance and most enjoyable event of the
kind that has been held here.
Owing to the wet weather the priz s
offered were not competed for.
The Green River Guards added
much to the military appearence of
the event.
Aside from the usual attractions,

Good music was furnished by the
Waterbury and Johnson bands and

adding much to the occasion.
Comrade Thomas' poem was well
received. It was rendered in a very
enthusiastic manner, and the several
" hits " in it caused outbursts of
The attendance was rauoh larger
than could have been expected with
such weather and the financial condi

not suffer much.

The presence of Department Com
mander Morgan, of Rutland, was a
verv pleasant event the last day.
Many of the boys met him for the
first time and the cordial manner in
which he greeted them had the effect
of making them feel at once as if they
were old friends. His speech, or
rather talk, to the boys was atten
tively listened to and received with
Despite the rain a large crowd as
sembled in the vicinity of the judge's
stand to listen to the speakers of the

hour and was attentively listened to.
It was not the spread-eagle Fourth
of July address of the olden time but

pressing practical thought which
must have good effect upon all who
listened. Mr. Hogan's address was
also well received and elicited frequent

I wish to ask each one of the com
rades to remember that we are to
have a reunion next year and I hope
all will respond as readily to the call
of my successor a s they have to mine.
Let us try to have the seventh annu
al gathering surpass the sixth and
make these meetings a credit to the
G. A. It. and the country.
Comrades I wish there was no mis
fortune to record, but the sad occur
rence near the close of the exercises
prompts me to say a few words in
behalf of a suffering man. The dis
charge of a cannon which resulted in
the hea t and excitement of a contest
and although many can tell how it
might have been avoided, we do not
know how it was caused, and do not
feel at liberty to lay the responsibility
to anyone. It was an accident.
John Amidon was a poor man liv
ing on a hill farm with a wife and
large family of children to support.
He left his work to come and spend
the National Holiday with us, and
while helping to carry out the pro
gramme met with an accident which
disables him for life. His condition
is pitiful and should receive the sym
pathy of all. His family is wholly
dependent upon him for support ami
he is unable to hire his farm work
done. A sum of nearly fifty dollars
was quickly contributed. I am truly
thankful to those who have contrib
uted so freely of their money and care
but. I feel we ought to do more, dlis
haying must be done by the helping
hands of friends and neighbors, and
unless the best medical skill is em
ployed his life cannot be saved.
All contributions should be sent to
S. W. Hinds, North Hyde Park, Vt.,
and I appeal to all who read to help
us. He is our comrade and brother
and let each one who has . the heart of
a man do something to relieve the
distress of the afflicted family. " As
ye would that men shouldjdo unto
you, do ye even so unto them."
Respectfully Yours,

To the Lamoille Valley Veteran Asso

In closing my service as comander
of our association I wish to say a few
words expressing my interest in the
work and pleasure and appreciation
of your assistance in our Sixth An

efforts to make this meeting one of
the most successlul ever held. 10

nor money and the result has been
most gratifying.
I am aware however that this suc
cess is not wholly due to my efforts,
but the interest and am given uy
those whom I have consulted contrib

of the occasion, 'the large attend
ance of the public made it a financial
success and added to the pleasure of
all present. The bands and drum
corps in their tidy and orderly np
pearance and the excellence of their
music would have been a credit to
any gathering. The speakers of the
day proved themselves fully compe
tent to deal with their subjects and I
can say nothing to add to their rep
utation; but I wish to say that I
fully appreciated their remarks and
especially the advice to the veterans.
To each of these and to the several
