Childhood and old age have here met together, each offering the products of their labor for inspection. Two girls, of seven and eight years old, brought each a pair of woolen socks; and one who might be their great-grandmother sent her quilt, wrought within the last year with her own hands, which far exceeded some that were presented by younger persons."
