Many residences along the line of march were very beautifully decorated, and from both sides of Franklin street there fluttered thousands of flags and colors, while streamers and drapings of rich bunting were tossed about by the breezes Perhaps the most artistically dressed house on this popular thoroughfare was the Commonwealth Club
From the stately windows of this palatial structure huge flags and streamers of bunting gracefully floaters.
Among the other most prettily-dressed houses on Franklin street were the ‘Baltimore Row’ and the residences of Messrs. W. L. Royall
and J. B. Pace
The soldier boys were viewed as they passed the Commonwealth Club
by about three hundred gentlemen, most of them members of the club.
The pretty green lawn was covered.
Only upon one occasion—--the unveiling of the Wickham monument—was there ever a larger crowd upon Monroe Square than that which gathered there to witness the great street pageant on yesterday.
The pretty green sward was covered with a great multitude of humanity, which embraced hundreds of ladies and gentlemen, equally as many children, while the number of baby-carriages
was far greater.
There was much cheering from this point, especially when the Marylanders fell into line with the other pedestrians.
