The Hotel Kindred
served a Thanksgiving dinner that was fit for people accustomed to affluence. A spread of its dimension would have cost six times as much in the big city hostleries, and probably would have been minus the genuine pumpkin pie and other delicacies. While it was the good fortune of the editor to dine at the Kindred, we have no doubt but that the other Valley City hotels had just as good spreads, and the people who did not dine at home could find a cheerful place to be thankful that we have such good hotels.
