Grand Army Hall was well filled on Saturday afternoon by members of the post, associate members, and others, who assembled to make expression to George E, Haynes and family of the regard felt for them, and to bid them good-bye previous to their departure to California.
After doing full justice to the repast provided, the Commander of the post, F. E.Ray, called to order and asked comrade C.M.Russell to preside.Mr.Russell briefly stated the purpose of the gathering and called upon members of the post and associate members for remarks.Among those that responded were; George J.Bond of Searsburg, E.R.Cook of Dover, F.E.Ray, N.M.Haskell, H.F.Barber, O. E. Butterfield, C. H. Parmelee, F. J. Corbett, W.D.Adams, Rev.George E.Woodman, L.H.Adams, Mrs. Butterfield, and others.
In behalf of members of the W.C.T.U., Mrs. Woodman presented Mrs.Haynes a silver butter dish and creamer. Mrs. Haynes responded in suitable words. Resolutions were unanimously adopted by a rising vote showing the esteem in which Mrs.Haynes was held.
Col. J. H. Goulding was the last speaker, and in closing presented Mr.Haynes an envelope containing a substantial sum of money which the speaker suggested might become useful on the journey to the Golden State.Mr.Haynes responded in a very feeling manner, saying that he did not know he had so many friends, that he should always think of Wilmington with the warmest feelings of regard, that he might return in time to spend his last days amid the green hills of Vermont.
Mr.Haynes has been a building contractor in this place for 30 years and has been regarded as the leading mechanic in his line of work.He will be associated with his son-in-law.W.H.Hammond at 1742 Fifth Street, San Diego, California, who went to that place about one year ago and already gained prominence as a builder.
