Opis: The Re-Union of 73 - Portsmouth Portsmouth

Excerpt from The Re-Union of 73: The Second Reception of the Sons and Daughters of Portsmouth, Resident Abroad, July 4, 1873, Also, an Account of the High School Re-Union, July 5, and the Great Praise Meeting on Sunday, July 6
The first suggestion, relative to a Reunion of the Sons in '73, did not find favor with the public. That is, the said public did not respond with a loud and long Amen, when the subject was talked of in private, and written of in the local papers of Portsmouth. Not that the old town lacked the elements of hospitality, or the requisite amount of interest in the Sons abroad; only the spirit needed to be aroused. The masses everywhere are led by a few. We do not think or plan en masse, although we almost always execute by the aid of the whole people. So, while there was no positive opposition to the movement, there existed the usual amount of apathy which always attends the planning and starting of an enterprise of any great magnitude, and it was very natural that there should at first come forth the cry of "cost" and "labor" and "a more convenient season," etc.
But the spirit of enterprise, mingled with love, is contagious; and as the weeks of winter and spring went by, and the Fourth of July, 1873, and the 250th anniversary of the settlement of Portsmouth crept on apace the enthusiasm and zeal increased and one and another fell in, until scarce, any remained outside the charmed circle of workers in the labor of love. The entertainers and those who were to be entertained were alike interested in a successful and glorious gathering and there was a beautiful moral in the fact that for a month or more preceding the ever-to-be-remembered Re-union of '73, an overwhelming number of willing hands and feet never ceased to do the bidding of more willing hearts in aid of the good work of preparing for the proper reception of the children, and grandchildren of old Strawberry Bank.
The re-uniting of a family is pleasant and beautiful. But where are the adjectives that will aid us in describing the re-union of hundreds of families under one roof The Mother welcoming home her Daughters and Sons! By the way, what a rare magnetism there is in that little word "home"! How strangely enchanting are the reminiscences that it conjures! How multiplied the pleasures it suggests!
