  • 13 Apr 1887: BEACONSFIELD. By our Rambling Reporter
    The first tea meeting in connection with the Beaconsfield circuit of the United Methodist Free Church was held in the Assembly Hall on Tuesday evening, 5th inst. When I arrived at the scene of action I found Mr. Wheeler busy boiling the proverbial "billy," assisted by about a dozen of the youngsters of the neighborhood. Mr. Wheeler seemed to be the manager of the tea-making process, and later on seemed to give general satisfaction. On making myself known to him, he took me inside and introduced me to the Secretary, Mr. H. Glismann. This gentleman was up to his elbows in work, but when he found out what I wanted he walked round with and showed me what preparations were being made for the satisfying of the large number who were espected to tea. In an adjoining room I found Mesdames Alp, Wheeler, Jones
    and McLean, assisted by Messrs. Nelson, Day and Glismann, busy cutting the cake and other good things which were to be put upon the tables. At six o'clock the doors were thrown open and soon the two tables (which ran the whole length of the building) were crowded to excess. The interior of the hall presented a very pretty appearance, having been decorated by some of the young ladies with ferns and flowers. No. 1 table, which was presided over by Miss Day, assisted by Mesdames Jones and Wheeler, was also nicely done with flowers, but the palm of decoration was borne off by No. 2 table, which was under the charge of Mrs. Alp and Miss Glismann, and was a work of art in the way of decoration. After tea, whilst some were taking a stroll in the lovely moonlight and others a rest, the tables, etc., were moved out and preparations made for the public meeting which was to follow. Mr. Beatty was voted to the chair and Mr. Walton opened the meeting with prayer. In the course of his remarks the chairman said—We have now to bid farewell to Mr. Walton, who has been with us during the past three months, and to welcome Mr. Johnson, his successor.
    Mr. Walton is leaving us for another colony, and I am sure everyone present will join with me and bid a hearty farewell and God speed to him. The Misses Kinder then gave a duet in a pleasing manner, Mr. Walton gave an interesting address, and Mr. Goode followed with a recitation (The Husband's Vow). An address from Mr. Johnson, and humerous readings from Messrs. Wheeler and Atkinson were well received. A good sum was realised at the collection, and after the usual vote of thanks of the ladies, chairman and committee the meeting terminated. Rev Jarvis Bunting Johnson1
