Peace Envoys to have State Welcome

Concord (N. H.) Daily Patriot

Portsmouth, N. H., July 26.—Elaborate plans are being made by the State of New Hampshire for the reception of the Russian and Japanese peace envoys by Governor McLane when they arrive in this city next Monday. It is planned to hold the reception in the big county court house in State Street, which is admirably adapted to such an occasion.

It is proposed to have the envoys come up to this city when they arrive here in the cruisers Dolphin and Mayflower from Oyster Bay. At the government landing they will be met by a company of United States cavalry from Fort Ethan Allen, Vermont, and escorted to the new court house, where they will be received and tendered the freedom of the State by Governor McLane, council, and staff.

It is proposed to make elaborate changes in the building to make it suitable for the occasion, and the State will spare no expense. It is also thought that one of the regiments of the State militia will be ordered here for the day, and that the street from the landing to the court house, as well as the building, will be guarded by soldiers.
