"As has been his custom for some years past, I.S. REMSON gave a
complimentary luncheon yesterday afternoon in commemoration of the
58th anniversary of his birth at his country home at Harbor Haven,
which is on Jamaica Bay, halfway between Jamaica and Far Rockaway.
Mr. REMSON, at great expense, has constructed a wide canal leading
from Jamaica Bay fully 800 yards to his home and clubhouse.
Mr. REMSON is chairman of the local board in the Thirty-third School
District and many school teachers were present at the celebration
yesterday. A feature of the occasion was a birthday cake made by
Miss WELLS, president of the St. Albans Social Society, the cake
having 58 candles on it. The Rev. Mr. BARRETT, pastor of the
Springfield Presbyterian Church, made an address. Lunch was provided
by the women of the St. Albans Social Society.
