stately tree to wait the coming up of our party. Gus and Hoyt rode mostly together generally keeping near unto the carriages, as their swift steeds were so nicely matched. While Lizzie and I were ahead giving the rest something to amuse themselves with, or loitering behind being ourselves amused. At length we drew up our steeds at the city of Birmingham and there tarried a few moments then turned our faces ever more homeward bidding farewell to our attendant about midway between the places. We arrived in safety ere the day was done all will be pleased with the doings and the rest of acts will they not be remembered?
