Bridgewater Bulletin, October 4, 1904.
A large and representative number of the medical men of Lunenburg County, together with a few professional and business friends, gave a farewell dinner at Hotel Miller, Lunenburg, on the night of the 27th inst, in honour of Dr. Faulkner of Mahone. The doctor is about leaving the scene of his labours for the purpose of prosecuting his studies in the hospitals of London and Edinburgh. The occasion was a most enjoyable one, thanks to the efforts of the genial host; and though akin to sad such partings always are, this fact did not materially interfere with the appetites of those present. If good wishes and kindly impressions are helpful and tend to stimulate endeavor, Dr. Faulkner goes to the Old Country with no mean supply. After dinner the guests of the evening and all retired to the residence of Dr. Burrell, where, with music, and laughter, accompainments of good fellowship, a most memorable function was concluded. Dr .Faulkner is a young physician, who had an enviable student career, and during the few years of his practice in Lunenburg County, has given evidence of professional qualifications of the highest order. His genial disposition, fine literary taste and honest manliness, have endeared him to his most intimate acquaintances, and made his esteemed by all. He will be much missed by his medical brethren, patrons, and the whole community, which cannot help feeling the absence of a gentleman of his attainments. All will find consolation in the fact that he will, by his present course, prepare himself for greater achievement and wider usefulness, Bon Voyage, Friend Faulkner.
