Strahan, Miss Bernice Strahan, Messrs. F. H. Sackett, Jr., and George Strahan, and Masters Rob and Ray Strahan.

The party report a most enjoyable trip, and all were much pleased with their stay at Palm Beach. January 1st F. H. Sackett, Jr., and George Strahan left the party, returning by rail to DeLand to complete the year at Stetson university."
