[142] of the Southern Historical Society, a cordial welcome to Nashville and to Tennessee.

That we heartily sympathize with the noble mission which has enlisted his sympathies, and will aid him to extend the work and the influence of his Society among our people.

That after years of trial we express our hearty congratulations to the board of management and to the editor, upon the character of the “Histori-Cal Society Papers,” which we regard as an impartial and a truthful record. We heartily commend these “Papers” to all who desire the preservation of the facts of our history during the war.

That we invite the Southern Historical Society to hold its next annual meeting in Nashville, and assure our comrades of a cordial greeting.

We heartily thank the Association for their kind interest in our work, and assure them that we highly appreciate, and warmly reciprocate their words of encouragement. We hail all such organizations as co-workers in a common cause, and bid them God-speed in their efforts.

General Fitzhugh Lee (accompanied by the Secretary) expects to start on the 19th of this month (February) on his second lecturing tour in behalf of the Southern Historical Society.

The programme of lectures as now arranged is as follows:

Knoxville, February 20th; Montgomery, February 22d; Mobile, February 23d; New Orleans, February 26th; Houston, Texas, February 28th; Galveston, March 1st; San Antonio, March 3d; Austin, March 5th; Waco March 6th; Corsicana, March 7th; Dallas, March 8th; Forth Worth, March 9th; Sherman, March 10th; Little Rock, March 12th; Memphis, March 13th; Nashville, March 14th.

Not a dollar of the proceeds of these lectures will be used for current expenses, but the whole will be passed to the credit of our ‘Permanent Fund,’ so that our friends may feel assured that in greeting General Lee with large audiences, they will be at the same time honoring a noble son of an illustrious house, enjoying a really magnificent lecture, and aiding in placing on a permanent basis a society which is laboring to vindicate the name and fame of our Confederate cause and people.

Rev. Hugh L. Mageveney's lecture in Baltimore for the benefit of our Society, turned out to be a splendid success in every sense of the word. The eloquent lecturer thrilled and delighted the large audience who heard him, and as the result we received a check for $500, (which we at once passed to the credit of our ‘Permanent Fund,’) and have an intimation of ‘a fragment more’ to come. We tender our hearty thanks to the distinguished lecturer, and to the committee of the Confederate Society of Maryland, (General Bradley T. Johnson, Chairman, General I. R. Trimble, Winfield Peters, Corresponding Secretary and Treasurer, R. M. Blundon, Secretary, Colonel J. Lyle Clarke, Wm. P. Zollinger, R. W. Gwathmey, Dr. Wm. H. Cole, M. O. Shriver), by whose efficient work this splendid success was achieved.
