At an early day the property came
into the possossion of the Bonneil
family, but I do not think any ot the
family resided hera.

More than sixlv years ago, Mr.
(/harles Miller, the ancestor of the
present owners, entered into possession
of the premises, and later became the
owner of them. He occupied the place
for a considerable time before purchas-
ing it. For more than half a century
his family have resided here. When
Mr. Miller first moved her¬Ђ there was
no building between this house and the
Court House, and all around was
vacant land.

There was quite a large circle of the
Miller family once, but now only two
remain. Miss Lucy Miller and her
nephew, Charles. They two and a
little girl whom they have taken to
their hearts are the only tenants now.
But, "Soft, behold ! Lo, where it
comes again. " I speak of that ethereal,
evanescent, invisible tenant of whom
Mr. Vosseller told us this afternoon.

You have marked this spot, and you
have done well. We have lifted the
veil that curtains one hundred and
fiftv years that are past. For a century
and a half this house has stood, and it
ought 10 be perpetuated through
centuries to come. As we lift the veil
that shields this simple tablet we mark
the beginning of a new era.
