and welcomed the veterans in the
following Words: i i
'Uentlemen of the Lnion eterans'
Union of North America It is with
the greatest pleasure and the most
extreme satisfaction that we welcome
you to the city of Rock Island. I
may safely sav that every citizen of
our city joius me in exteudiug to vou
a roval welcome. Never before in
the history of the city have we
enjoyed the honor of entertaining a
more representative Dody ot citizens.
It is au honor for which we may feel
justly proud, aud I can assure vou.
gentlemen, that the recollections of
your visit will produce in our minds
memories that will never be effaced.
'We feel greatly flattered that you
have honored us by selecting our city
for your annual encampment this
year, ana we trust that we may lie
able to reciprocate by the entertain
ment we will afford. We desire to
share with our sister cities of Daven
port and Moline the honor of your
entertainment. Coming as vou do
from every part of the United States
and representing as you do the sur
vivors of the great civil war, vou
comprise one of the most notable
assemblages ever held m our country
lnle you may in a sense seem to
be among strangers, vet I can assure
von. jreniiemen, we are all vour
friends, The sturdy sons of Illinois
and Iowa participated in that great
struggle with you, and you will find
them always ready to welcome you,
and to svmpatize and join with vou
in an oi your joys anil sorrows. 1 ou
battled in a most noble and worthy
cause, lou fourht and bled, and
many of your comrades died, that
3,000.000 of human lieinn mifrut be
li Iterated . rom bondage, and that our
union of states might not be severed.
What noble sacrifice must there have
been. What great test of loyalty and
patriotism was manifested. "That
success crowneu your enorts is ap
parent irom the tact that the stars
and stripes now float over a united
and glorious nation and proclaim lib
erty tnroughout the world. To you.
gentlemen, the people of onr country
owe a ileiit of gratitmle that it never
can repay. Posterity will always
hold you in lovin? remembrance and
admiration, and history has and will
record vou as having s ul Klued the
greatest rebellion ever attempted.
The war in which vou fought for the
perservation of the union has long
since passed, but the principles for
which yon contended and so ably
maintained, have lieen established in
the breast of every true American, se
cession has been stamped out
and slavery has been abolished
America no longer presents a home
for such pernicious evils. While the
war cost thousands upon thou
sanus oi lives, entailed upon
many misery in measures untold.
while it bathed our people in their own
blood and caused the tears of anguish
ami sorrow to now from the heart
broken mothers and wives of our land.

the time aud study he has devoted to

In this way the improvement would

setting aside enough for the main

suggested, while the levee improve
