Resolved, That this post accepts
these gifts as tokens of respect, and
we appreciate the spirit in which they

Dear Mrs. Cable: At a regular meet
ing of John Buford post, held in Me
morial hall. May 12, 190C, your inestim
able gifts: An oil painting of General
John Buford, a n:ajor general in the
union army; a photograph of his statue
and monument on the field of Gettys
burg, together with his sword and belt,
which he. wore throughout all his bril
liant military career, was presented,
and accepted by this post, standing
with uncovered heads, with reverence,
and in memory of the brave young hero
who is gone, who gave his life to save
the dear old flag from dishonor, and
the nation he loved from destruction.
We honor and revere his memory.
He was indeed a hero and one
of nature's courtiers, affable, gener
ous and charitable; and as we gaze
upon that statue the embodiment of
youth and vigor, he represents the
highest type of human manhood, we
feel his presence, and are awed into
silence. We thank God he has lived,
for it is he and such as he we de
light to honor, for it was he and his
kind the nation should remember, for
they were the nation's hope. Like a
meteor he flashed across the horizon,
for a time his chivalry and bravery
illuminated the skies, then he was
gone, and gone forever. But his name
and deeds aru inscribed across the blue
arch of heaven in letetrs of burnished
gold, where they will live forever, as
an inspiration for the ennobling of the;
youth of all lauds for all the genera
tions to come. Again thanking you
for these precious treasures which
we honor, appreciate, and accept,
which we will hang in the most prom
inent place in Memorial hall, where
they will remain long after the last
comrade of General John Buford has
passed away. We are yours, respect
JOHN II. GARDNER. Commander,
WILLIAM NORRIS. Adjutant.
