  11.   Per Stanley Beal 8 Feb 2009 email:

    The party about the Inauguration of President Benjamin Harrison is a fascinating bit of history too that I had not heard before and would love to have a copy if it is convenient. That oyster roast sounds interesting to me. Who could afford that today? The oyster roast served about ninety people. After the supper, the amusements were made up of such as country people enjoy. Some select pieces were rendered on the violin by Harvey Beal, with the organ accompanying. All had a lively time and enjoyed themselves very much. Of course, all present were Republicans and they kept perfectly quiet, as it was our time to be merry! I VIVIDLY recall my Granddad playing his fiddle. He took it along whenever they went visiting and would play durimg the event. He was pretty good too. The Eastmans tell how he would pretend to go to bed and sneak out the window and play for a dance. Have youth changed? My Grandparents gave that fiddle to me and I have it. I am the oldest, male grandchild so that may have been their reason. A foreign student was here once who was an accomplished violinist and I showed it to him.
    I wanted him to play it so badly but he said it wasn't in shape to play. He was impressed by its weight. He was an accomplished musician and paid $500.00 for a bow later in Minneapolis so I can see what his standards were. It's being over a century old impressed him too but NOT ENOUGH TO PLAY IT.
  12.   It is said that Jesse was very fond of the circus. He went to see the circus whenever he could. On one of Jesse's trips, he was traveling on the train to Waterloo. It was the Minneapolis and St. Louis train. Everyone comlained about how slow it was. Jesse told the conductor, "See that man over there? (pointing to an elderly gray haired man). He was clean shaven and had dark hair when he got on this train, now he's gray and bearded.
