 Miss Mildred Lee and Mesdames Janney and DeSaussure, who had managed the South Carolina table at the memorial bazaar, were greeted with hearty cheers, and presented with palmetto cockades. Miss Lee gave several of the veterans some exquisite carnations, which will be carried back to Charleston and treasured for many a day. Captain James G. Holmes brought with him a wreath of laurel and palmetto, which was placed at the base of the monument. It was sent by the young ladies of the Confederate-Home School, of Charleston, an institution, founded in 1867, where over 1,500 of the daughters of the South Carolina Confederates have received an education. Mr. S. G. Pinckney brought a South Carolina State flag of blue silk, with a palmetto tree and fringe of silver, which was sent by the memorial association of Charleston, and placed at the base of the monument by Mrs. DeSaussure.
