Inter Sung services at the congregational Church. Last sunday morning at the congregational Church the memorial services were he id which were attended by a very Large congregation As Well As the Meibers Quot of James m. Parker Post and the sons of veterans. The music was by the regular choir directed by or. Harris. A most interesting address was delivered by the pastor Rev. A. Macdonald who took his text from Isaiah 66 12 Quot behold i will extend peace to her like a and Micah 4 12 neither shall they learn War any , a or. Mac Donald spoke first of the great Benefit that Rivers were to humanity How they were a potent Factor in Rains made the soil Fertile and As a general Rule were constant and could be depended upon. This he said Xmas like peace its benefits were widespread Prosperity wealth and happiness attended it. It had sometimes been necessary to have wars in order to remove obstacles in the bed of the River of peace. The revolution and the civil War were both fought for the purpose of removing these obstacles. The first for Independence the second for a National Union and the Freedom of slaves. Or Mac Donald spoke with great earnestness of the Power that the coloured race is becoming and the Good latent in them. Continuing he said that during to is years of the existence of the United states of America Only 20 years had they been at War and it was this prevalence of peace that had made the nation so great and successful a one. The veterans risked their lives in War but they did a greater thing when they Laid Down their laurels and promoted the cause of peace this peace must be made an eternal one. It is said even now that the Cloud of War is hanging Over our land that there will soon be a conflict in which men of brawn will contend against men of Bram and capital. It hardly seems possible that american working men will engage in a terrible War for those rights which inevitably in the course of time will be theirs in peace. Would that we All might belong to that grand army that strives to promote the cause of peace. The service closed with America Sung heartily by the entire congregation. Class 03.

She said that Success did not come by Luck but our own efforts were what Maile or marred us.

Marian Estelle Kittredge was the Prophet and foretold wonderful futures for her classmates. Sitting at her writing desk she fell asleep and dreamed of a travel in Germany where she met a seer who read the future like a open Book and who told her All the remarkable things narrated.

Sorrento has changed nationality several times. It was once an Indian settlement once French and once English but now it is american and we Trust that it will be always. Rebekah meet. Doubtless All those who read this have read the sketch of Sorrento printed in the recoil Winter. I have often heard persons express a desire to know the Char Acter and life of the Early settlers in the town and Hope these anecdotes will prove of interest. One of the first houses erected on Sorrento then Wau Keag neck was upon the exact spot now used As a Ball ground. This House was built by Daniel Sullivan of whom every one who knows anything about the Early life of the town has heard. He was a Man of great ability when he chose but he did t always choose. Some of the first settlers in the town were the Beans Bragdon Prebles Simpsons sullivans Gordons Johnsons uranus Donnells. Hotel Sorrento is built Over the spot where once stood the James Hean farmhouse. The site where the Sullivan House stood seems unlucky tor the first House was burned the second struck by lightning and now since it has been used As a Ball ground the Sorrento boys Are not always victorious. The first House was burned on the night when its owner was captured and carried to new York. Twas one night in february when or. Sullivan awoke and found his bed surrounded by English soldiers who carried him aboard ship and taking All the Straw Beds piled them in a Heap and burned the House. Mrs. Sullivan with the Aid of the hired Man carried the children to the shelter of an old boat which was overturned on the Shore and there they remained for the night. John White then a boy of seven ran for help to the nearest place the Home of his now owned by the Dike company. The boy was Only half clothed wearing no shoes and stockings and bloody foot prints were made on the Frozen Snow. It is said that some time before this mrs. Sullivan had carried her Silver spoons upon High head and hidden them in a hollow tree. In this same night when Daniel Sullivan s House was burned the John Hean Hoise where the Doane House now stands was also a fact which is rarely spoken of. The second House built on the Daniel Sullivan lot was owned by his brother . In 18.42 this was struck by i he iii. There Are still a few persons living in let a town who remember the circumstances.

They Aie now in the Possession of mrs. Delphina Wooster a descendant of tic Sullivan family. S Sorrento once boasted of a ship Yard who. I was at the James Workman place Ihetu White the first Schooner launched was the Abby Hammond in is in. She was lost shortly after her launching when on a trip to the West indies.

A Sullivan Caplin Josiah Simpson made the first voyage from Maine to California in 1847 As commander of the suliotes. One of the most successful operations Ever attempted in the town was the old tide water Mill in Long Cove.
