Moses Heap in Lumb, Rossendale, Lancashire - 8 February, 1879
from My Life and Times, or An Old Man's Memories, page 53:
A Jubilee tea-party and re-union of old teachers and scholars was held at Lumb on Saturday, February 8, 1879, being a scholar when a boy, I received an invitation. After tea a meeting was held, at which old tunes were sung and several speeches were made. It was wonderful to see so many old faces, with friendly greetings, and was very affecting. When at last “Old Lang Syne” was sung, the majority of the audience fairly broke down in tears, thinking of the long-past days.
