Governor Wichers, the Councils of Police, notable citizens from the capital city of Paramaribo, and some sixteen hundred other people attended. There were tables with over three hundred dishes and one thousand Chinese lanterns. People ate and drank. Speeches were made, Hebrew prayers were delivered, and poems were recited. The concluding celebration, a splendid ball at midnight, lasted until dawn.1
