J. B. Glenn, who left an arm at Boonsboroa, delivered an address of welcome. Lieutenant J. P. Glenn, whose bravery and heroism was displayed on near a hundred battle-fields, offered thanksgiving and prayer.

A grand record.

Mr. Charles Glenn gave a graphic history of the company from its formation to its surrender. On its flag may be inscribed Manassas, Germantown, Fairfax, Yorktown, Williamsburg, Seven Pines, Malvern Hill, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg and Gettysburg, and many other names famous in our history.

Captain E. G. Wall, who organized the company and lost a leg while commanding it, wrote from Richmond, at the Retreat, expressing regrets at his enforced absence.

Lieutenant A. B. Carrington laid down his life at Gaines' Mill. The other lieutenants who went out with them, C. A. Price and J. P. Glenn, yet live.
