THE COLPITTS REUNION

                   The Fourth General Re-union of the Colpitts Family will be held at the old home-stead,
                                    Colpitts, Albert Co., N.B. on Thursday, August 25, 1910.
                                   At the last re-union nearly five hundred were in attendance.
                                   It is hoped that many more will be present on this occasion
                   Dinner and tea will be taken on the grounds. All who are within a day's journey are requested to bring baskets, with some thing extra added for the friends from a distance.
                      Those coming by train will buy tickets to Salisbury. Teams will meet the MORNING trains, East and West, and passengers will be conveyed to the picnic grounds at reasonable expense.
                             No special rates can be secured from the railroad, but any party of ten or more
                                           from the same point of departure can obtain excursion rates
                                                      Any letter of inquiry will be cheerfully answered.

                                                                                                               Secretary,
                  President,
                                                                                                              R. J. Colpitts
                   R. R. Colpitts
                                                                                                                Dawson, N.B.
                   Moncton, N.B.
