1899 - VACATION AT AN END. The President and Party Leave Adams, Mass., for the Nation's Capitol.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass., June 26. - The President [McKinley] was met at 2:30 o'clock on Church street, by Sanford Post G. A. R. and a band, and was taken to a reviewing stand in Monument square, and from which he saw a pretty parade of 2000 school children and citizens of the city. After the parade had passed by, Mayor H. Torrey Cady made an address of welcome to the President.
At the close of the mayor's remarks, there was great cheering. The President stepped forward and expressed his feelings for the most generous welcome that the people of North Adams have extended to the President of the United States. After he had finished speaking the President's carriage was in waiting for his drive about the city. A number of streets were driven through and then he returned to Adams.
