Description running the length of the room and one across it. The ceiling is low, the walls bare and whitewashed the tables only boards laid on trestles and the seats common wooden benches. But the tablecloths if not fine, were exquisitely clean, and the tables were covered with the products of Dixie, and the deep window recesses were piled high with contributions for which no room could be found. There were grapes gathered today-having been sheltered by dampened matting; and grapes gathered in the autumn, a little dried but deliciously sweet. I thought them better than those which had been left on the vines till now. There were home-made raisins from every housewife's little store, bright coloured apples-and the Utah apples are as delicious as those one remembers tasting in childhood-hard and soft shelled almonds, figs and pomegranates. These were all the fruits, but they were prettily set out in baskets mingled with flowers, and there were plenty of vases of cut flowers, and blossoming plants in pots. If the Gardeners' Festival had been strictly limited to the productions of the garden it should have stopped here, but the term was understood as broadly as in Eden, and accordingly we had an abundance of honey, butter, milk, rolls of various kinds, every variety of cake, pies and bread, with preserves canned fruits and jellies. In short, we were better treated than Raphael was by Mother Eve.106 The night was sufficiently chilly to make us appreciate the advantage gained by the use of fire since her day, as the good things smoked upon the board or were brought in from the stove outside. "No fear lest dinner cool", any more `OfiRaphael is a prominent character in Milton's Palndixe Lost. 114
