The Lee House—great crowds before it—incidents of interest.

Several incidents of interest occurred before the ‘Lee House’ prior to the hour for the procession to pass and afterwards. At about 10 o'clock the handsome body of New York veterans, with their Commander Colonel A. G. Dickenson and Adjutant-Major William S. Keiley, on their march down to the point at which they were to join the procession, halted in front of the ‘Lee House’ [296] with heads uncovered, whilst their elegant band played ‘Carry me back to Dixie.’ On their return from the monument after the exercises they made a graceful detour of the space in front of the house, and with hats raised and a bend of the head marched to the familiar air, ‘Should auld acquaintance be forgot,’ especially appropriate for those who having made homes upon other soil have returned to do honor to their mother State as to their loved commander.
