The troops, drawn up on both sides of the streets, marched in perfect order, single file, leaving between them and us a distance of about four feet. The drums and fifes accompanied the songs and made agreeable harmony. The citizens led the procession. Our day pupils followed. Our thirty orphans, each with a candle in her hand, formed a third group. Then came the ladies of the congregation, each with a lighted candle. The community and the clergy terminated the procession.
