The celebration of Grandma Elsie's approach ing semi-centennial was now the most important event in the near future, the principal theme of conversation in the connection, and grand preparations for it were going forward. By her express wish, all the poor of the neighborhood -- white and black, in two distinct assemblies -- were invited to spend a large part of the day on the plantation, amusing themselves with outdoor games and enjoying a bountiful feast spread for them in the shade of the wood in which Mr. Leland, the uncle of the present occupant of Fairview, had once concealed himself when attacked by the Ku Klux. Another party, consisting of all the relatives, connections, and intimate friends residing in the vicinity, would be given the freedom of the house and grounds to enjoy themselves as they should please. Circumstances were auspicious ; all the preparations had been thoroughly well attended to ; the day dawned bright and beautiful, and found every one in high health and spirits. She whom all were seeking to honor and make the happiest of the happy, awoke with a heart full of love and gratitude for the unnumbered mercies and blessings of her lot in life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Elsie and the Raymonds, Book 15 (Elsie Dinsmore Collection)?
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Feb 19, 2003
Still the image of maternal beauty and grace, Elsie celebrates her fiftieth birthday as family and friends from far and near gather to express their love. Edward and Zoe Travilla contribute two special girts for the birthday festivities. The sweet twins, Lily and Laurie, add to Elsie's burgeoning brood of grandchildren. Max and Lulu accompany Captain Raymond on a business trip to the West, where they commemorate the Fourth of July with a grand party, complete with fireworks! Their business accomplished, the Raymonds travel by train to join the rest of the family at the summer cottages by the shore. That justs about sums up the whole book. I can read these books in 30 mn. flat because they are sooooo boring. Books 1-14 is ok, but after that it is entierly boring. They even have Cp. Raymond reading out of a history book!
