"At half past one o'clock the company moved in procession from Major Burnham's to the Meetinghouse where the business of the day commenced by a pertinent and impressive address to the throne of grace, by elder Blood; after which an oration suitable suitable to the occasion was delivered by Doctor A. Woolcutt. The procession then returned to Major Burnham's, where Mr. M. Cobb delivered a short but animating oration to the military gentlemen attending under arms. At four o'clock the company partook of an elegant repast provided by Major Burnham for the occasion, after which the following toasts were drank, each one followed by a volley of musketry, from the company of light infantry, commanded by Capt. Elihu Cross, who was officer of the day."
