Excerpt from Mementos of the Golden Wedding at Longwood, With Genealogies, 1873

The cultivated and refined ever found genial and cor dial sympathy in their society. But most of all, they were each to the other a help-meet, and never neglected their own large household.

Ten children were like olive plants round about their table, Who, through many perils and sicknesses, some nigh unto death, have all reached or passed the merid ian of life, and by the blessing of God, are enabled to engage in its active duties: following the example of their parents, in doing with their might, whatsoever their hands find to do. Two have endured the privations of a pioneer life in California, and now have bright and pleasant homes there. One has the same in Wisconsin, while the others are nearer their birth-place and parents. But, from far and near, on the evening of the sixth of May, all had assembled, with their wives, husband, and little ones, in their beloved home.

On the morning of the seventh, the doors of this ever hospitable retreat were thrown wide open to welcome such friends as could or would come to present their congratulations, and unite with the family, in their grati tude for the blessings of fifty long years. The sun shone in splendor, the air was balmy, the grounds and house were tastefully decorated, and everything smiled upon this happy, loving family of twenty-five members.

Immediately after family prayers in the morning, (which were offered most fervently and touchingly, with a heart over?owing in gratitude and praise for the united family, by the son-in-law, Reverend Hamilton B. Holmes,) the hearts of the parents were. Touched by gifts from their children and grand-children, who were in turn, filled withmost tender emotions, by words of love, and gifts from their parents, of valuable antiques, as well as golden offer ings. The domestics of the household were present at this family re-union, and were substantially remembered, and many others were cheered by tokens of friendship - thank offerings from these stewards of the Lord.
