" The 24th of July is to me of double interest for two reasons. One Is that it is my birthday. I was born on the 24th of July, seventy-five seventy-five years. Another reason is that it is the birthday of our great commonwealth. com-monwealth. On the 24th of July, sixty years ago was born the nu cleus of our magnificent State of Utah. That is what we have met to celebrate. Fifty-five years ago today we celebrated this day for the first time in Lehi. The previous year we had the Walker Indian outbreak. Two years before we had the grass' hopper war. The year '54 was one of peace. The Indian war was over for a time. In 1853 our crops were good and we felt we had something to rejoice over- We, were living in the fort made by building our log cabins in the form of a hollow square, seventy-five rods each way. Stock yards and cattle yards U side with a large corral In the cen ter for the surplus stock. A mass meetine was called and it was agreed to celebrate the 24th. July 4th committees were ap pointed. It ; was agreed to have a parade. " It fell to my lot to make the flags and banners . The paint I used was a red substance from the rock quarries, and Indigo, made the flag by painting red and blue stripes on white domestic which made red, white, and blue stripes. Suitable mottos were painted on the banners. One I remember was "Peace and Plenty In Zion," The only meeting house at that time was a log building (standing counter-marching around the fort and arriving at the bowery at 10 o'clock the audience was entertained with music by. the band and singing sing-ing by the choir, conducted by William Hudson. Speeches were made by Bishop David Evans and the mayor. Oration by the orator of the day whose subject was our struggles and final victory over our enemies the Indians and the' grasshoppers. grass-hoppers. Some comic songs were sung and recitations given. After that toasts and sentiments were read and benediction by the chaplain. chap-lain. The meeting was dismissed. Next in order was dinner. Fam ilies and friends joined together and for that meal which was not so rich and stylish as such things are today; it consisted of roast beef, new potatoes, green peas, turnips, bread and butter, milk to drink, squash pies and custards for dessert As long as the grasshoppers and Indians let us alone we had plenty to eat. Each family in crossing the plains brought one or two cows, and sometimes worked them in the team with the oxen. We were reasonably well nrovided with beef and milk and butter. In the afternoon we were enter tained at the bowery by the dramatic dra-matic association playing "Luke the Labourer." We used wagon covers for curtains and side wings. The festivities of the day ended with a dance at night in the log meeting house. The floor was large enough for two sets of cotillions or quad' rills at a time. The music consisted con-sisted of the three Violins by Pierce, Rhodes and Collett, which ended the first celebration of the 24th of July in LehL CITY OFFICIALS EXPRESS APPRECIATION TO ASSN.
