United Confederate Veterans.

Fourth official report of Joseph Jones, M. D., L. L. D., of New Orleans, La., Surgeon-General of the United Confederate Veterans, covering the period extending from April 9, 1892, to July, 1893, rendered at the Fourth Annual meeting held at Birmingham, Ala., July 19th and 20th, 1893.

156 Washington avenue, New Orleans, La., July, 1893.
Honorable John B. Gordon, General Commanding United Confederate Veterans, Birmingham, Ala.:
General,—I have the honor to submit the following report of the results of my labors in behalf of the United Confederate Veterans during the past year—February, 1892, to July, 1893:

The Third Annual Meeting and Reunion of the United Confederate Veterans was held in New Orleans, La., April 8th and 9th, 1892, and my labors up to this date were submitted to the General Commanding, and form a portion of the official report of the minutes of the third annual meeting and reunion as reported and published by General George Moorman, Adjutant-General and Chief of Staff.

At the third annual reunion in New Orleans, La., 189 organized camps of United Confederate Veterans were represented, and a number of camps have since been organized, bringing up the total number to near 260.

It is to be hoped that the entire South will, at no distant day, be covered by the camps of those Confederate veterans who have survived the casualties of the bloody conflict (1861-1865) and the ravages of time.

It is of great importance that each camp should be thoroughly organized, and its organization placed in permanent form by publication.
