Excerpt from Addresses: Delivered at Dinner in Celebration of the Tenth Anniversary of the Pilgrims of the United States (Hon. Joseph H. Choate, President of The Pilgrims and Chairman of the evening, on rising and rapping for order, is roundly cheered and toasted by the members and guests assembled.) Mr. Choate: I am going to ask you, in the first place, to rise, as you did just now for a much less worthy object, when I propose the loyal toasts. I ask you to fill your glasses and rise and drink to: The President of the United States and His Majesty, The King of England. (The toast was drunk with great enthusiasm, cheering and singing "The Star Spangled Banner" and "God Save the King.") Before the Chairman could resume, a delegation of members, consisting of Messrs. F. Cunliffe-Owen, R. A. C.Smith, Herbert Noble, George W. Burleigh, Lawrence L. Gillespie, and George Gray Ward, presented Mr. Choate with a large and beautiful gold and silver salver, richly decorated and suitably inscribed, Mr. Cunliffe-Owen addressing him as follows: "Mr. Choate, your brother Pilgrims make you the offering herewith of the Pilgrim fare, bread and salt; bread signifying long life and prosperity, and salt to ward off from you all evil spirits and every kind of harm, and we ask you, our honored President, in the name of all our brother Pilgrims of the United States, to accept this gold and silver salver as a memento of the occasion." Mr. Choate: "I accept the salver with profound gratitude, and I will eat the fare on some more suitable occasion. It will doubtless do for me all that you wish and foretell, but never having until this moment heard of this munificent and wholly undeserved gift, I can only now express to you my warm thanks and high appreciation of your kindness."
