The mementos.

The mementos are photographs of the remains of Jefferson Davis, as the body lay in state, of scenes incident upon the obsequies, and a pansy. The latter is upon a letter-head from the office of the Mayor of New Orleans, and around it is type-written a certificate attested by his official seal stating that the pansy came from the bier of Honorable Jefferson Davis, as the deceased lay in state at the Council Hall in New Orleans.

Several members of the Howitzer Association were called upon, and narrated incidents of the ‘late unpleasantness.’ At a late hour the meeting adjourned.
