-delay, so as to be organized in
time to participate in this great

the'ir comrades in carrying out
the laudable and philanthropic
objects of the United Confederate
Veteran organization.
-III. He heartily approves of
the wisdom shown by the Vete
rans in their selection of the
"Bluff City," the "Great Metropo
lis" of the proud old State of
Tennessee, as a ineetig place for
this, their eleventh annual Re.
union, as it is so situated, geo.
graphically, that it is accessible
to a very large majority of the
U. C. V. Camps.

IV. The general commandig
therefore urges the officers and
members of all camps to com
mence now, without delay, mak
ing preparations to attend this
great Reunion. He especially
urges all camps to commence now,
without delay, preparing for dele
gates, alternates and as many
members as possible to attend,
so as to make it the largest and
most representative Reunion ever
held; as business of the greatest
ravity affecting the welfare of
the old Veterans will be trans
icted during this eleventh annual
Reunion-such as the benevolent
:-are, through State aid or other
wise, of disabled, destitute and
iged Veterans and the widows
ind orphans of our fallen brothers
n-arms, which will be one of the
nost important matters for our
onsideration. In this connec
ion thegeneral commanding calls
special attention to the increas
ng age, multiplied sorrows and
orroding cares of many of the
allant old soldiers, who risked
heir lives and fortunes for what
hey considered right during the
ventful years of 1861-65. Through
he mortuary reports received at
hese headquarters he is daily
nd almost hourly reminded that

ond the allotted span of human

assed the age of manhood when,
rty years ago, they promptly

digent comrades and brothe's

such help in their old age as vE
