3 One of the most interesting aspects of living at Bellevue, Mrs. Edmunds says, is meeting the many Carrington descendants who come every year to see the mansion. Just a week ago Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wreath of Philadelphia were visitors. His grandmother, a daughter of John B. Carrington, was born there. Before it was restored, many saw Bellevue's possibilities. The late John R. Booth, while at a part there, said of the mansion: "I used to think that if I could see it fixed up, I would see something. Now that I have see it not only fixed up, but lighted up for a beautiful party at night, I think I have seen everything."


Bellevue will be opened for the St. John's Episcopal Church tour on Saturday, May 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Other tour sites are Tarover, Redfield, the home of Mrs. Frank Booker, St. John's Church and the River Road Tavern. Proceeds will go to the St. John's Restoration Fund. Box lunches will be available.
