West Kent Guardian 29 August 1846.

GRAVESEND AND MILTON. INGRESS TAVERN.

On Saturday last, Mr. Stephens, builder, opened his new establishment, "Ingress Tavern," Milton-road. The opening was marked in a generous and signal manner. Mr. Stephens provided a substantial dinner on the occasion, to which he invited all his workmen, the number of whom exceeded a hundred. The invitation included all the men in his employ, without exception. Carpenters, bricklayers, and labourers resigned for one day the hammer, the trowel and shovel, and all right heartily, in one company, with the same implements, knives and forks, engaged in one common undertaking - the reducing to a skeleton the carcass of a fine sheep, which had been roasted whole for the occasion, and disposal of various other lesser articles of good cheer. The business commenced at the appointed time, and was performed in an expeditious, efficient, and workmanlike manner. After dinner many loyal and popular toasts were given, and the health of Milton's acknowledged benefactor, James Harmer, Esq., was drank with great cordiality and kindheartedness. The evening was spent in a rational, cheerful, animated way. Some of the workmen in each department of service, whether useful or ornamental, were not backward to speak of their skill and exploits, and the dexterity of a right hand not likely to forget its cunning, even in advancing years and declining strength. Good fellowship and great harmony pervaded the entire company. The men, rather the guests, all returned to their humble dwellings before eleven o'clock, sober and orderly; each and all gratified by, and grateful for, the opportunity which had been so kindly afforded them of "taking their mutton" at the plentiful and welcome board of their hospitable host and worthy master.
