----Man and steel, the soldier and his sword.After Colonel Anderson's address the committee recommended the following officers, who were unanimously elected: President, General W. H. F. Lee. First Vice-President, Colonel Thomas H. Carter; Second Vice-President, General William H. Payne; Third Vice-President, Captain McCorkle; Fourth Vice-President, General B. T. Johnson. Secretaries, George L. Christian, Leroy S. Edwards. Treasurer, Major Robert Stiles. Chaplain, Rev. J. William Jones, D. D. Executive Committee--the same Executive Committee, who have so faithfully discharged their duty, are recommended for reelection. General Early, in feeling terms, announced the death of Lieutenant-General J. C. Pemberton, whom he had intimately known, and whose devoted patriotism he fittingly eulogized. On motion of Major Stiles, the secretary was instructed to enter a suitable minute on the death of General Pemberton. On motion, the thanks of the Association were returned to Col. Anderson for his able and eloquent address, and a copy solicited for publication. General Early said that as we have of late been honoring the memory of brave Frenchmen who fought in our first Revolution, he hoped we should not forget the gallant Frenchman, General Polignac, who came to our help in the last revolution.
