|Friends and comrades, again here we meet
Our hands to clasp, each other to greet,
While here to-day we would not forget
That two* have passed over since last we met,
And there's another** who'll meet us no more,
For his feet are now treading that dark mystic shore,
Patiently awaiting the call to obey
From Earth's weary trials to hasten away !
At 1 p.m. we were summoned to the dining room where a table was spread "and all things were ready." I will not attempt a description, but instead give an expression made by one of the guests. He said, "It was one of the finest dinners I ever sat down to." To say that the table was bountifully spread would be but faint praise. Divine blessing was invoked by H. S. Barnes, after which the company tried their best to show their appreciation of the good things before them, being well served by Mr. Ansley's son and wife, who were present on a short visit, and who added materially to the pleasure of the occasion.Captain Thos.

1. Ink bottle from which General Washington took the ink with which the death warrant of Major Andre was signed.The description of these curios and valuable relics was taken from an ancient catalogue, made by Ovid Chase, the elder, and in which are recorded many other curious mementos of early Colonial days, but of which disposition has been made heretofore, or which the present owner is loath to part with for money consideration. The correspondent was shown one of these, namely, the first map ever made of the township of Unity, N. H., the greater part of which land was owned by Samuel Chase, and who, as selectman of the township, recorded the map as official, and gave his hand and seal to that effect in 1806.
2. Cover to the same ink bottle, made the day after the battle of Bennington, from a boot leg of Samuel Chase.
3. Ink bottle once owned by General John Stark, and presented to Samuel Chase by General Stark in person, in 1819.
4. A button cut from the coat tail of one of the parties who sallied out in the disguise of a Mohawk Indian at the "tea party" in Boston Harbor. The party having surreptitiously filled his coat tail pockets with tea, Jonathan Wilmarth, with his sword, cut off the coat tail, pocket and all, and emptied the tea in the harbor; this button was preserved and handed down from generation to generation, having passed from Jonathan Wilmarth to Sarah Wilmarth, Pike Chase, and thence to Ovid Chase, Sr., and lastly to Ovid Chase, Jr.
5. Watch key, once owned by Colonel Williams, that was taken from his person after his death at the battle of Crown Point, in September, 1748, by Samuel Chase. The valuable stone that was in the key is now in the possession of the heirs of Kate Sprague Chase.
6. Watch seal and stone worn by General Sumpter, the last of the Revolutionary generals, presented personally to Samuel Chase.
7. Watch seal and stone worn by General Sullivan and presented to the niece of General Stark, who in after years disposed of it to Molly Stanley Chase for a dress.
8. Watch worn by Samuel Chase during the Revolution and afterwards carried by President Washington.
9. Pistol taken from "Old Grimes, that good old man," of ancient ballad fame, by Samuel Chase, justice of the peace of the town Unity, New Hampshire, in 1800.
