After playing a few lively pieces, it was suggested by a prominent member that they march in Indian file and visit the remaining coaches with the sweet strains of some peaceful lullaby in order to avoid disturb­ ing any who might be indulging in the hopes of reaching the top of the ladder, first seen by Jacob in his historical dream.
