Then Maj. Graham Dares, who had
been appointed to read a poem, came
forward and before reading recited an
interesting incident which happened in
New Berne during the time of Mr.
Davis's incarceration. While in prison
Mr. Davis was in need of many com
forts, which he did not have nor could
expect to get, except from hi. friend..
The ladies of this city, Mr.. Fred
Robert, and Mis. Harriette Lane being
the prime mover, in the matter, made
an effort to raise money for Mr. Davia.
The Mason, assisted; the young men
gave a grand ball; the little boy. gave
a tournament, at which Miss Eleanor
Jones wa. crowned Maid of Honor by
Mr. D. S. Willis, a gallant Knight; and
the whole city united to come to the
asei.tacce of the imprisoned chief. The
result was a handsome sum was raised.
Major Daves then read the following
