Fremont, Ohio


Ladies, gentlemen, and fellow-citizens:  For the purposes of the city of Fremont we erect here on this ground made illustrious by the victory of Col. Croghan at his gallant combat with the British, a City Hall.  The corner-stone has now been laid.  The ceremonies in connection with it are now ended and I am requested to announce that the further public exercises of the day will take place immediately after dinner at the park in front of the Court House.
