Our Reunions were highly honored this year by the presence of at least two Governors of the States in which the Reunions were held.

Governor William Stratton, of Illnois, gave us a half day and spoke over the amplifier to the great crowd at Pontiac, Illinois.

Governor Loveless of Iowa, had the misfortune of visiting Mt. Pleasant on the only day it rained. He spoke in the assembly tent and over the amplifier. All on the grounds heard him.

We appreciate these great men gracing our Reunions by their presence. We hope it was a pleasure for them.
