"As some of the happiest events that the New Haven Yacht club have thus far celebrated were from their very nature of a nautical character, it seemed perfectly proper that there should be a watery manifestation of the elements last evening at their first concert... A tempting collation was served, Caterer Bradley, assisted by Head Waiter Pickett, officiating. Many of the members of the [Republican] league were present, also Governor Harrison and Thomas R. Trowbridge, jr., president of the league, to whom the visitors were introduced, after which they spent a few hours in a very social manner, playing billiards, whist and in conversation, and every visitor present expressed themselves as highly pleased with the attention shown them by the members of the Yacht club."

The Republican League Purchases the Club House on Chapel Street
"Yesterday a very important purchase of property was made, being the purchase of the club house of the Republican league by its members, the consideration being $25,000... Dr. Winchell will convey to the club a clean title of the property -- which was formerly occupied as a family residence by Marshal Carll, and previous to that by the late Gaius F. Warner, and which is situated in front of the Hyperion Theater."
