The Forbes House Museum in Milton will cel- ebrate the departure of its early Milton Hill resident, Governor Thomas Hutchin- son, on Sunday, Septem- ber 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the 88 Wharf Street Restaurant. The irreverent, but not his- torically accurate, re-enact- ment and cocktail reception will be held in conjunction with Hutchinson's departure and will include a fife and drum procession down::to Milton Wharf, where the Governor's neighbors and friends will have gathered to greet him. "The Governor" will also be accompanied to the wharf by, a~ec~tal regim~t (The :Gardner Regimerit of Char- lestown) that will fire a mus- ket salute upon his arrival. After mingling with his friends and neighbors on the terrace of 88 Wharf Street, he will be introduced and de- liver his farewell remarks. At the conclusion of his "historically inaccurate re- marks," he will be escorted to the water's edge by the fife and drummers and the Gardner Regiment and board an open vessel to be transported down the Neponset River toward Dorchester Point "to sail back to England" aboard the Minerva. As his vessel be- gins to pass from view, the regiment will fire a final musket volley as guests drink a "colonial grog" toast to their departing Milton neighbor. Governor Hutchinson was the last civilian Royal Gov- ernor of the Massachusetts Colony and lived for several years at his Milton summer home on Adams Street, af- ter angry colonists who were members of the Sons of Liberty burned down his Boston residence.
