R. E. Lee Camp of Confederete Veterans celebrated the birthday of General R. E. Lee by a banquet at the Hotel Fleischmann at night. The dining-room of the hotel was very handsomely decorated with flags, Confederate and United States, and with flowers. Extended around the room were tables arranged in the form of a square and laden down with all the good things of the season. In the centre of the table stood a large model of the Alexandria Confederate soldiers' monument (Elder's Appomattox), said to be one of the handsomest in the South. Promptly at 8:15 P. M. the Camp, with a few invited guests, filed into the dining-room, and for over an hour nothing was heard but the clatter of knives and forks, as the veterans did justice to the bountiful repast spread by mine host Fleischmann.
