Mr. Alonzo Sackett, one of the prominent citizens of Bergen, Genesee Co., N. Y., and daughter, Mrs. Jerome Feezlear, are spending a few weeks with relatives—the Hammonds, Williamses, Remmingtons, etc.—here. The picnic in their honor at the great railway viaduct on Tuesday at the Cattaraugus High Banks was largely attended, over fifty families of relatives being represented.
