[386] ties which should bind us together as true and loyal citizens of our beloved and now happily-united country.

On behalf of Lee Camp, No. 1, Confederate Veterans.

The report evoked loud applause. It was written by Major Stringfellow.

Major Brander said he was satisfied when the committee was appointed that they would bring in the right sort of report. He moved its adoption.

Mr. T. W. Sydnor seconded the motion, and moved a rising vote, and the latter motion being carried, and the question being put on the adoption of the report, every member of the camp stood up. The adjutant was instructed to forward a copy of the report to Columbia Post.

Rev. Dr. Ray said there were sitting near him two sons of Confederate veterans, who asked him if they could vote on the adoption of the report. He knew it was out of order, but he had replied, ‘Vote, boys, vote.’

Remarks referring in complimentary terms to the committee who had drafted the report were made by Colonel Alexander Archer, Mr. A. G. Evans, Rev. Dr. Ray, and others.

On motion of Mr. Philip Samuels, Rev. Robert C. Cave was elected an honorary member of the camp. The camp then adjourned. There was a very full attendance upon the meeting.
