    Bountiful harvest: Mrs. Neales decorated the [Lower School] dining-room very tastefully for Thanksgiving Day. Fir trees were placed in the corners of the room, and the fireplace was filled with different fruits of the harvest.

    Thank goodness: For the Thanksgiving dinner alone, were needed 73 Vermont turkeys, 49 Virginia hams, 2 barrels of sweet potatoes, 5 gallons of olives, 50 dozen bananas, about the same number of oranges, 88 boxes of sardines, 4 gallons of olive oil, not to mention all the delicacies, such as lettuce, nuts and raisins, cranberries, grapes, and the other things that go to make up a proper dinner for the feast.
