regard to transplanting a Dentzio brought out
the information that it could be safely moved

Estelle T. Moore told us the banana is supposed

Sarah T. Miller amused us by recounting

“A Recollection of Lucretia Mott”, who as a
small girl would slip in the parlor, while
“Company” was eating supper, and arrange the
chairs in a half circle around the fire as her
mother had seen done in her youth; - a Nantucket
custom. Eliza N. Moore spoke of
visiting at the delightful home of the Motts,
“Roadside”, near Germantown, Pa. An extract

And ask if they will please to tell
Where Mrs. Mott has gone to dwell?

This place of rest for man an beast
From North & South & West & East?
