Chapter 202—Joint resolution Respecting the quarters of the Southern Historical Society.

1. Resolved (the Senate concurring), That the resolution of the 23d March, 1887, in relation to the room occupied by the Southern Historial Society in the Capitol building, be, and the same is hereby, repealed, and that the said room referred to in said resolution be set aside for the use of the said Southern Historical Society, subject to the control of the General Assembly at any time hereafter.

2. This resolution shall be in force from its passage.

The Society being without a seal, the Secretary at a meeting of the Executive Committee, held October 26, 1888, submitted a design, adapted from the great or broad seal of the late Confederate States of America, which was adopted. Both are fully described and pictured in the Papers, Volume XVI, pages 416-422. The seal of the Society, which is excellently engraved, was generously executed, without charge, by Mr. M. S. O'Donnell, now of Malden, Massachusetts. The Secretary, in accepting such trust, was constrained by patriotic and dutiful motives. There are natural claims upon him which all must respect, yet he has done what he could for the sustenance of the Society and the advancement of its interests. It is to be profoundly regretted that it has not the support which should be cheerfully accorded it by our people of the South.
