Kandolpli, president of the hostess chapter, presided over the exercises and introduced Rev. James Power Smith, D. D., adjutant on the i staff of Stonowall Jackson, who do- | llvered the Invocation. Ho was fol- , lowed by a chorus of 300 school chll- > dren, who Hang "Maryland, My Mary? land," and "Mas^a's in the Cold. Cold Ground" with fine effect. The children : were nrranged on the stage In tho form of a large flag. All of tho glrla were dressed In white and wore bright red ribbons. It was cleverly executed and received generous applause from the delighted audience. Welcome by Mrs. EUer. Mrs. Nathan D. Kller, retired presi? dent of the Virginia Division. U. D. C, was introduced by tho chairman and delivered a strikingly beautiful wel? coming address. The past year, she told ^e visitors, has been a happy one for the Daughters of Virginia?happy In the thought that their sisters were coming, and happiest now that they were in Richmond's gates. Turning to j the president, Hhe Haid: "Mrs. McSherry, wc welcome you. ! and feel It an honor to have you in I our midst because of the noble work ? you have done as president of tho j most unique organization In the world, j Unique that it exists for no other pur? pose than to keep fresh the memory of some of the world's greatest heroes, and to care for the noody and helpless one who still survive the period from '61 to '65. Nowhere else is there re? cord of such an organization save in this beautiful Southland, so dear to our hearts, with Its traditions of the past and Its hopes of the future. No? where else does history tell of the women of a defeated people banded together for the Ood-gtven purpose of defending the rlghteousneae of the cause for which their men gave thoir Uvea, and her women their loving sympathy. "While it is the privilege and pleas? ure of this historic city, capital of the Confederacy-, to be your nostess for these few days, yet all Virginia opons her homes and hearts to you, and ac Knowledges it a great Joy to have you on her sacred soli. Sacred because there is not a Stale or hardly a com? munity in the South represented by the delegates that did not have some hero whoso blood waa spilled on Vir? ginia's sotl." Mrs. Eller's speech madjc a deep im? pression on the large audience, and the long period of handclapping whloh followed i'?stiiicd to the feelings of the delegates. Welcomed by Governor. She was followed by Governor Wil? liam Hodges Mann, who gallantly Btal ed, and incidentally with much truth, that there was nothing left for him to add to the welcome already extended to them by Mrs. EUer?it was so com? plete and all-embracing. Ho paid a tribute to the women of tho South, who Instilled Into the hearts of the men and boys who fought the battles of tho four years' war the principles of man ') hood and honor, for which they have become famed in history. The women of tho South, ho said, furnished the in? spiration and the courage which enabl? ed the men to contlnuo a struggle against overwhelming odds. I The Governor eulogized the great work of the Daughter/! In keeping alive I by means of monuments and museums, > the memories of the departed daya of 'glory, and commented on Use fact that| I although they have erected countless 'monuments to Confederate men, there has not yet been erected a monument to the Confederate women who fought the war aa truly as die the men. He hoped to seo the day, ho said, when a! great monument will bo erected to tbo; women of the Confederacy. On thlsj monument should be Inscribed, as ex? pressing all virtue and all courage in; a single phrase, simply: "The Women of the Confederacy." Cordial word From Mayer. Governor Mann waa followed by Mayor D. C. Richardson, who seconded the Bpcechcs of welcome with special! emphasis on the greetings of the city) of Richmond. He spoke eloquently oft the self-sacrifice of tho women of the' South during tho war, and of the great; work of the ?. D. C. in preserving thej memories of "that glorious march from! Bull Hun to Appomattox." His speech, was frequently Interrupted by applause' and created a deep impression- An ad-: dress of welcome written by Mrs. Lizzie Cary Daniel, president of the Confed-: orate Memorial Literary Society, was' next read by Judge George L. Chris-; tlan. It was followed by a patriotic! selection sung by the chorus of public' I school children. Cheera for Mrs. McSherry.

It was pronounced In a most Impressive man? ner, and held tho audtcnoo charmed from the oponlng words to the end. She offered the appreciations of tho Daughters for the generous welcome extend to them by the city and State, as well as by the Virginia division and chapters of the organization, and told of the pleasure experienced by tho delegates In coming to Richmond, "the capital city of a storm-born nation-^ ! n nation which lived only an hnuf, but which left memories that will llvo forever." Extremely Eloquent.
