Zzzthe death of Early.

Since our last meeting our first president, and our faithful and intrepid old hero and comrade, General Early, has died. Your Executive Committee thought it peculiarly appropriate that at this meeting the story of his campaigns, and especially that of his last campaign, should be the theme of the occasion.

They knew, and you know, that no one can tell that story like General Early's devoted friend and faithful aide, the peerless Virginia orator, John Warwick Daniel, who was as gallant and glorious in war as he is devoted and distinguished in peace. Senator Daniel needs no introduction to a Southern audience, and he will now address you on ‘General Early and His Valley Campaign.’
