- Nov 20, 2007He sounds like quite the ladie's man.
Nov 3, 1888 Messrs. H. Kyd Douglas and Charles Little addressed a large
audience in the town hall on Saturday evening, Oct. 27. Mr. Douglas
spoke about an hour. He was presented with some beautiful bouquets of
flowers by the ladies, who seemed to be very much pleased with
him.---He is a bachelor. After tendering his thanks to the gentlemen
managers of the stage, and expressing his appreciation for the ladies’
gifts, he started for the train. But part of the conveyance refused to
act; so the Col. did not get to the train that night. We don’t know
what was the cause of this accident. I don’t think it was the weight,
although it might have been the case. He did not have his coffee pots
with him we are positive, so you can’t blame it on them. The Col.
Remained in our town until Sunday noon.
