The programme of the day was concluded at night at Sanger Hall with a banquet.
At 9 o'clock Lee Camp and numerous invited guests, in all about three hundred and fifty, sat down to a splendid spread of choice viands.
These were discussed with earnestness, and for about three-fourths of an hour knives and forks did good service.
At the end of that time Commander Archer
introduced Mayor Ellyson
as toast-master, who announced that he had communications of regret for absence from W. A. Smoot
, of R. E. Lee
Camp, Alexandria, Va.
; Hugh R. Smith
, of A. P. Hill
; Captain Sol. Cutchins
, of the Richmond
Light Infantry Blues, and Captain C. Gray Bossieux
, of the Grays.
