A little lady honored.

William P. Mahon, Legare Bailey, Edward H. Mullen, George H. Teasdale, Morris Karpeles, James M. Cady, and James W. Adams, members of the Brown Cadets, from Columbus, Miss., who attended the unveiling on the 29th, and who were the guests of Mr.Chalkley and Mrs. Bernard D. Chalkley, No. 106 south Third street, have sent to Mr. Chalkley as a souvenir of their visit and as a mark of their appreciation of his hospitality a present for his six-year-old daughter Edith. This consists of a beautiful gold necklace and locket. Engraved on the latter are the words: ‘Edith, from her friends of Brown Cadets, Columbus, Miss.’

A number of graceful letters accompany the souvenir, in which Richmond is spoken of in words so warm and appreciative that it makes us all rejoice that she had within her gates at the unveiling such agreeable gentlemen as the cadets.

These were the handsome young soldiers who, in the long halt on Franklin street, stood in the roadway between the residence of Major Bailey Davis and the site of the Commonwealth Club and sang so many melodies of our fair Southland.
