where Judge Price Williams, Jr., President of the ‘Lee Association,’ and his committee, had done everything for our reception and entertainment, and the success of the lecture.

The committee met us at the depot, and the Alabama State Artillery fired a salute in honor of General Lee. We were escorted to elegant quarters at the Battle House, where there was a brief but very appropriate speech of welcome by Judge Price Williams, Jr., and a cordial greeting from members of the ‘Gulf City Guards,’ prominent representative citizens, and a number of ladies.

That night, in spite of the rain, we had a large and most appreciative audience, and General Lee's splendid lecture was greeted with frequent outbursts of applause. We regretted that the weather and our brief stay deprived us of the pleasure of seeing more of this beautiful city and its noble people.
