A City Trade Jubilee

   A very interesting epoch in the history of an old-established City firm was celebrated on thursday evening, by a dinner at the "Bridge House Hotel." The dinner was given by the firm of Messrs G. Nelson, Dale & Co. (Limited), of 14, Dowgate Hill, to the whole of the London staff, in celebration of the jubilee of Mr. G. Wyatt, who entered the service of the firm in the year 1844. Mr. E. Montague Nelson presided, the vice-chair being occupied by Mr E. R. Morris (managing director). The chairman in giving during the proceedings the toast of the evening, "The Health of Mr. Wyatt," detailed briefly the history of the firm, was established in the year of the accession of Queen Victoria, and ever since had prospered and increased. In 1884 Mr. G. Wyatt entered the service of the firm, and in 1860 he (the chairman) joined as a partner. But matters were very different from what the were now, for at that time he and another were perched up in a corner, and George Wyatt "old George" as he was always called, was the whole staff. It was an extremely gratifying fact to him and his partners, as employers, to feel that they had one in their service who had been in their employ for 50 years (applause). He would like to mention one fact, and that was that five years ago the firm offered Mr. Wyatt a retiring pension of full pay, feeling that he had thoroughly earned it; but he refused, saying that he wished to stick to his work as long as he had the health and strength to do it. That was certainly much to his credit. In conclusion, the chairman asked Mr. Wyatt to accept a timepiece as a small token of the firms appreciation of his long and faithful service. Mr. Wyatt, who met with an enthusiastic greeting, said he would be only too pleased to serve the firm for another ten years, were he vouchsafed health and strength. City Press, May 12th 1894
