Editor's Note:  It looks like Eugene and Ena Littlefield were celebrating 10 years of marriage in 1900 with their children Hobert and Eva.  I don't know why Allen would have been selected to give the presentation.  He is 20 years younger than the Littlefields and about a decade older than their oldest child.  What I like about this is that it clearly was a community celebration.
