The First organization.

Some time in May, 1866, a call for a meeting was published in the local press, and there was a hearty response. The Virginia women who then assembled determined to unite in a permanent body, and this was the organization which they agreed upon twenty-four years ago:

PresidentMrs. W. T.. Joynes.

Vice-PresidentsMrs. S. B. Paul, Mrs. William Mahone, Mrs. W. S. Simpson, Mrs. T. H. Pritchard, Mrs. Charles F. Collier, and Mrs. John Miller.

Recording SecretaryMrs. Stephen Fenn.

Corresponding SecretaryMrs. John Wyche.

Treasurer—Mrs. A. M. Keiley.
