ner befitting the guest's rank, the titled yet democratic Frenchman. Brooks had been appointed chairman by the Society of the Cincinnati of Massachusetts, to consider what measures it will be proper for this society to adopt on the arrival of this our distinguished brother. The bond between the original members of this society was very strong. On Tuesday, August 24, 1824, Boston gave Lafayette her hearty reception.
