The baggage train moved out of the Union station at 9.30 o'clock, preceding the troop tains. None of the delays which characterized the departure of the 27th regiment were apparent and all of the trains left on or a little before schedule time.

A most excellent dinner was served of oysters, soup, turkey, vegetables, salad and ice cream, ending with coffee and cigars. About 50 covers were laid and the banquet hall was handsomely decorated, and the two long tables looked beautiful. An orchestra furnished tasteful music. President Reading acted as toastmaster and handled the meeting in his usual genial way. The toastmaster called on officers and directors for remarks and a number of them gave fine addresses."

The Red Sox had just taken the World Championship, defeating the New York Giants. Also in attendance was Connie Mack, a baseball celebrity in his own right, and since 1901, the manager, treasurer, and part owner of the Philadelphia Athletics:

"To Be Tendered Banquet by Home Folks Connie Mack Will Attend Communities Notified. The baseball fans of Jenkintown and Hatboro will give Steve Yerkes, the star second baseman of the world's championship Red Sox a banquet at Moore's Inn Hatboro, tomorrow evening. Yerkes was born in Hatboro and began his baseball career with the Jenkintown team.
