Venerable Madeira. — The late William Minot, '36, had preserved a bottle of madeira which belonged to his father, William Minot, 1802, who was the secretary of his class, and, though he survived all his classmates, left the bottle of class wine unopened. The wine is still sound, though somewhat too old, and it has been suggested that it be preserved to be drunk by the descendants in 1902. The bottle is of generous size, of very dark glass, and bears a raised medallion with the words "Class of 1802," in raised letters. Attached to the bottle is a card bearing the following inscription :
"On the 31 Dec. 1829 the following Gentlemen members of the Class Club of 1802 assembled at the house of Wm. Minot, viz., James T. Austin, Luther Faulkner, Chas. W. Greene, Sam. Greele, Rich. D. Harris, W. Minot, Jno. Randall, Rob. Rogers, and Alex. Townsend. It was proposed that the Meeting should be annual and that the same gents. or the survivors should meet on the last day of every year. A bottle of Class wine (to which this label is attached) was sealed, and it was resolved that it should be opened by the last survivor at the melancholy anniversary which should leave him a solitary member of the Club, and that he should then drink to the Memory of his ded. friends. This bottle is to be del. by W. Minot's Extrs. to any surviving member of the Club, who is requested
to exhibit it at the next ensuing anniversary and to beg his surviving friends to cherish his memory. He now as sures these friends of his affectionate regard: he begs them to accept his wishes for their happiness and welfare in this world and in the next, where he reverently hopes, thro the great Goodness of Almighty God, they and he may all be permitted to meet in peace and glory.
The bottle itself is now in the possession of William Minot, third of the name, who graduated from the Law School in 1868.
