p.6 Historic Cuff Buttons - This morning, Capt. Allen of the steamer America, and Capt. Cummings of the steamer Pierrepont, each received a unique gift in the shape of a pair of cuff buttons made out of a piece of wood taken from the wreck of an old British gunboat, which sank in the River Thames, near London, Ont., in 1812. The buttons were the gift of James Collop, Chatham, Ont., and are highly prized by the two captains.
