The April meeting of the Fort Prince George Chapter was a delight fully instructive one, held at the hos pitable home of Mrs. A. L. Johnson in Liberty, with Mrs. J. F. Banister and Mrs. Wade C. O'Dell as joint hostesses. The cordial reciprocity of feeling which has always existed between the ladies of Liberty and Pickens has been decidedly promoted by the or ganization of this patriotic society, for they have united in an effort to preserve the history of Pickens county in its earlier days, and to form a chapter of which any com munity would' be proud. After a short business session, the study of the life and times of Gen. Francis Marion was entered upon. No more picturesque character has ever adorned the pages of any his tory than that of the "Swamp Fox," and Mrs. Wayne Mauldin, in an ex cellently prepared paper, gave a vivid account of the life of this partisan hero. Mrs. Laura Alexander read Glimore Simms' "Swamp Fox" in a most effective manner. Mrs. T. J. Mauldin read a most delightful ac count of the times of the Revolution taken from Mrs. Ravenel's book Charleston, the place and the people. The study of the bravery and courage of the women of the Revo lution is dwelt upon at each meet iing, and the sacrifices andl heroism of Rebecca Motte was the subject' for; animated liscussion.
