The menu included a joint roast beef, weighing 471bs, supplied by Mr. Hodson, of Elsworth, with an abundant supply of Yorkshire puddings and vegetables. The dessert was really a sight. There were pines, grapes, walnuts, all of choicest and best. The grand duchess pears, and apples from Novia (sic) Scotia were especially magnificent. The supply of confectionery was also unbounded. The beverages were light, plentiful, and of the best; "Bass's No. 1" Galloway's sparkling ale; Encore whisky, surrounded with every possible description of mineral water; cigars and tobacco followed in due order. The post-prandial proceedings were opened by the host, who, in hearty, earnest fashion, welcomed his employés on that occasion. This was suitably responded to Mr. Holley, on behalf the staff, when song and toast followed in rapid succession till 11 o'clock. Mr. Culpin sang one of his best songs in his usual style. For some time after this the roads to Fenstanton and Hemingfotd were stirred by merry songs from happy throats. The extent and success of this event would lead one to think that the good old times of harvest suppers are returning.
