- Full Text
The present to be given by a large number of the citizens of Buffalo to Capt. Hazard, of the stm. MISSISSIPPI, as an expression of their esteem for "his noble conduct, both in his attempt to rescue Wakelee from the wreck of the ONEIDA, and his subsequent refusal of the proffered reward," has been purchased, and only await the process of engraving to be presented, which it will be in the course of a few days. It consists, says the Buffalo Express,
of a perfectly magnificent silver service; certainly the richest ever brought to Buffalo, both in pattern and workmanship. The salver measures 2 1/2 ft. by 22 inches, and is superbly embossed; besides this there are 8 different pieces, all of which are modellled and perfected in the most amssive and modern style. The entire service cost about $500.
The express understands also that the gallant party who rescued Walkee by means of the lifeboat, are each to be presented with a costly gold watch.
