The Comal Springs chapter of the National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century met recently at Victoria Bank & Trust for the last meeting of the year.
Mrs. William V. Porter, chapter member, gave an interesting and informative program on her ancestor. William White, who came to America aboard the Mayflower in 1620.
“He was one of 41 Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower who set up their government by a written compact; the first charter of a government of the people, by the people and for the people known to history before landing at Plymouth," Porter said.
“The Mayflower Compact was signed Nov ll, 1620, at Cape Cod by men who believed that God created all men equal. They had been persecuted and often imprisoned when they broke away from the Church of England because of their beliefs. Here was the birth of popular constitutional liberty, foreshadowing our Declaration of Independence and our American Constitution, which guarantees Freedom to all of us today," said Porter, dressed in colonial costume.
She presented each member present with five kernels of parched corn to commemorate the hardships of the men who signed the Mayflower Compact.
Fifteen of the men brought their wives. A child was bom soon after landing at Plymouth to Mr. and Mrs. William White, the first white child
bom in the Colonies.
Mrs. Kirkham, club president, urged officers and chairwomen to turn in annual reports before Jan. I.
Hostesses were Mrs. Robert D. Lozo and Mrs. Robert J. Moore, who served refreshments and decorated the table with a Thanksgiving theme. —Jewel W. Kirkham
