Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Newlin Jr. gave a dinner last night in honor of birthdays of their fathers, Mr. Joseph Newlin senior and Mr. Isaac Luttrell. They were 87 and 66 years of age respectively. Both are vigorous for "boys" of their age. Grandpa Newlin remarked that he would be with us to eat another birthday feast if the good Lord was willing. He has a lovely garden growing and takes a lively interest in farm affairs.
