of Regan's Battery gathered at People's Hall, on Saturday evening, to witness
the presentation of a flag to the battery. The presentation speech was made
by David A. Scott, Esq., and appropriately responded to by Captain Regan. After
which the company present—or such as chose--spent the evening in a social
dance. The whole affair passed off in fine style, and reflected credit upon
the gentleman instrumental in getting it up--Mr. John Hanmore.
