1908: Mayor’s Banquet at Aldeburgh

On Saturday evening, the Mayor of Aldeburgh (Mrs. Garrett Anderson, M.D.) entertained some forty guests, including the Town Council, at the White Lion Hotel, Aldeburgh.

– The toast-list was a long one, the most important being that of “The Colonies,” proposed by Mr. Alan Anderson (Orient Line), son of the Mayor, and responded to by Capt. Collins, R.N.

– Dr. Beverley, of Norwich, responded for the “Medical Profession,” and drew attention to the fact that Aldeburgh, in its Mayor, had honoured his profession, for Mrs. Anderson had been president of the East Anglian Medical Congress.

– The Mayor, responding to the toast  of “The Borough,” said she would try in her year of office to be a sort of motherly house-keeper, and would try to make the town, of which they were justly so proud, neater and more elegant, for being elegant was not wickedness. They must not talk, but as a Council work together.

– A most enjoyable evening was spent.
