UNDERHILL --- A very pleasant dinner party was given by the Rev. and Mrs. O. L. Barnard Friday in honor of Asahel Blake, whose 93rd birthday was thus celebrated. Mr. Blake was a veteran of the Civil War, having served three years in the 11th Vt. He is in comfortable health, being able to harness his own horse and taking pleasure drives when the weather will permit. He greatly enjoyed meeting his comrades and appreciated the sum of money given him as their expression of respect, but on account of impaired hearing, he is shut out from social enjoyment. A fine dinner was served to a goodly number of Comrades and their wives from this place, while Underhill Center and Bolton were represented. Congratulations and kind wishes for many more peaceful years were freely expressed. Mr. Blake was asked by his daughter, Mrs. Barnard, the next morning if he felt any older, he replied "No, I feel younger".
