FEAST AT FORT M'HENRY
Eighteen Hundred Patients at Holiday Dinner.
More than 1,800 men at Fort McHenry were given a Christmas dinner yesterday consisting of turkey and all the seasonings desired by a hungry Sammie. The choirs of St. David's Presidential Episcopal Church and the Grace and St. Peter's Church passed through the corridors of the hospital singing Christmas carols and were preceded by an illuminated star.
Twenty-nine hundred stockings were filled with goodies that were distributed by the Red Cross. Special singing of carols in the Detachment Club and the Red Cross was heard from various patients.
Col. Henry Page, commander of the fort, commended the splendid work of the Fifty-Fifty League. A concert over the wireless telephone was sent out by Lieutenant Winner to all amateur wireless stations and boats surrounding the harbors in Maryland. A prize was awarded to Ward No. 38 for having the best decorated ward in the hospital.
