13 September 1900, "The Reunion," Newaygo Republican
At one o'clock in the afternoon the crowd again assembled and was called to order by Mr. John Rosewarne of Ashland, who introduced Hon. Perry F. Powers of Cadillac, and for more than an hour the audience was spellbound by his wit, pathos and elequence. It is not derogatory to others to say that his address was equal if not superior to anything ever heard at the Reunions of the past, although the most distinguished orators of the state and nation have spoken from the same platform. At the request of Col. Bishop, who was not feeling well, Mr. Powers occupied nearly all the time allotted to speaking, the Colonel contenting himself, if not the audience, with a few pertainent remarks.

I did not know Perry, but he rented a room from my Grandmother. He and his sons were friends of my father. My Father told me Perry taught him a new word each day.|
