The TALES you probably never heard about


[Welland Tribune, 16 March 1894]

A large party of the friends of Morton Zavitz, learning of his intended departure for California, surprised him with a farewell visit on Tuesday evening. Mr. Zavitz is very popular in social circles, and keen regret is expressed that he intends leaving us. The change, however, is partly due to the advantages offered by milder climate of the Pacific coast, as well as for the opportunities for a young business man to succeed. The evening passed pleasantly, and before its close a beautiful volume of Campbell’s poems was presented to Mr. Zavitz as a keepsake from a circle of loving friends. Morton leaves town to-day, and on Tuesday, in company of his sister, will take the train at Port Colborne for the far west. The good wishes of a host of warm friends follow them to their new home.
