3. That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of our deceased comrade, and the papers, in sympathy with our organization, be requested to publish the same. The resolutions were seconded by Rev. Dr. Thomas R. Markham, of New Orleans, who was chaplain of Featherstone's brigade, by Colonel Addison Craft, of Holly Springs, Miss., who was fresh from the dying-bed of the General, and by his aid-de-camp, Captain LeCand, of Natchex, Miss., all of whom passed fervid and eloquent eulogies on the life and character of the dead General. The resolutions were adopted unanimously by a rising vote. A committee on resolutions, composed of one from each camp, with General Walter H. Rogers as chairman, was appointed, to whom all resolutions were to be referred. General E. Kirby Smith offered a resolution providing for the appointment of a committee to consult with Mrs. Jefferson Davis, with a view of determining upon and fixing the final burial-place of ex-President Jefferson Davis, that immediate steps may be taken by this organization toward the speedy erection of a monument to Mr. Davis. General Cabell spoke to the resolution, and others stated that the want of a definite location of the site retards the collection of subscriptions therefor. The resolution was adopted.
