[230] to the regular business of the annual session; the latter portion to the exercises commemorative of Robert E. Lee. A beautiful feature of the evening was the presentation of the Cross of the Legion of Honor to Dr. Palmer by the Daughters of the Confederacy.

Mrs. Wm. H. Dickson,

who has presided over the Association with so much dignity and ability and under whose administration the Chapter has increased to such splendid proportions, opened the meeting with a few eloquent remarks on the character of the occasion that had brought the ladies together. Mrs. Dickson said:

We meet to-day, ladies, in annual session to hear the yearly reports of our officers and chairmen of committees, to elect officers for the coming year, and to celebrate the birthday and eulogize and memorialize our beloved hero, Robert E. Lee.

There was a burst of applause. Then Mrs. Dickson called for the annual reports of the officers and committees.
