The toasts.

Then came the toasts, as follows:

The Day We Celebrate. Responded to by Comrade Surgeon Harold Snowden, surgeon Seventeenth Virginia infantry, Confederate States army.

The Infantry. Colonel Edmund Berkeley, colonel Eighth Virginia infantry, Confederate States army.

The Artillery. Captain K. Kemper. First South Carolina artillery, Confederate States army.

The Cavalry. General William H. F. Lee. The Navy. Captain S. B. Davis.

The Private Soldier. Comrade Alexander Hunter, Seventeenth Virginia infantry, Confederate States army.

A number of impromptu toasts were also responded to, and the evening was enlivened by yarns of camp life that brought forth peals of laughter.
