THE STATE GRANGE
-------
The 17th Annual Session
To be Held at Clayton
-------
Hon. Hiram Hawkins writes as follows about the approaching annual session of the State Grange:
MR. EDITOR—The State Grange goes to the beautiful town of Clayton to enjoy the hospitalities and the pleasures of that delightful and growing little city on the red and fertile hills, situated far above the malarial atmosphere incident to some localities in this latitude.
No delegate north of us need have any apprehensions in coming to their State Grange at Clayton, of meeting, as some have expressed it, the much dreaded “Malaria” at this season of the year. It is to be hoped that all the granges in the State will send delegates to our State Grange, which will hold its 17th annual session at Clayton, commencing Tuesday, 16th day of July and continuing three days. One bay will be devoted to public exercises, for which an appropriate programme will, in due time, be announced.
All the granges are requested to send the names of delegates to Bro. E. R. Quillin, Clayton, Ala., stating the grange from which they come, and whether by rail or private conveyance, so that homes may be assigned without delay and confusion which might result, if no notice was given before their arrival.
Fraternally,
HIRAM HAWKINS, M. S. G.
