through your valuable paper to
thank the old veterans and their
wives, and widows of the war
veterans, for their most noble
and generous reception they gave
me on the evening of the anniver-
sary of my 85th birthday. Just
after the electric light was lit up
for the first time on the corner
opposite my home and I was ad
miring its effect and grand ap
|*arance on the streets, I con

the house had the effect the

when he retires at night after a
hard day's march, and 1 very
quickly fell asleep with the
sweet sleep of rest and happiness
and peace, and did notawake un

is that God will bless you and
