General George D. Johnston
, our efficient representative, is now canvassing Texas
in behalf of the Society, and is doing, as is his wont, a good work-organizing local branches, enrolling members, and stirring up general interest in our cause.
Having just made a most successful canvass of Dallas
, he now goes to Houston
, where we are sure he will meet a cordial greeting and the hearty cooperation of our friends there.
A gallant and accomplished soldier, a graceful and eloquent speaker, a genial and popular gentleman, and an enthusiast in his work, General Johnston
never fails to make friends for the Society wherever he goes.
We hope to be able before long to announce for him a programme which will go far towards ensuring the success of our effort for permanent endowment
A Confederate soldiers' home for Louisiana
was organized in New Orleans in April last, and our friend, Private John H. Murray
, advised us that he had sent us an account of its organization; but we regret to say that the paper containing it somehow miscarried, and we must ask for a brief sketch of it for future publication.
's Recumbent figure of Lee
will be unveiled at Lexington, Va.
, on the 28th of June, with appropriate ceremonies, a full account of which we hope to give in our next.
Meantime we cordially congratulate the Lee Memorial Association
on the completion of their labors in the production of one of the most superb works of art in the country, and in so appropriately decorating the grave of our grand old chieftian.
