Mrs. J. F. Spearing,

Financial Secretary, reported that the total collections during the year amounted to $132.75. January 14, 1900, she collected dues for 1900 amounting, with the per capita tax for 1899, to $2.25; received from the Treasurer for stationery, $4.50; dues still due for 1900, with tax for 1899, $8.50.

Since my last annual report a number of valuable and interesting relics have been received and deposited in the case set aside for use in Memorial Hall. A detailed description of them has been given in monthly reports at the meetings of this Association, and need not be repeated here. The case has lately been embellished with a handsome plate, bearing the inscription “United Daughters of the Confederacy,” which was secured through the kindness of our ever-courteous friend, Colonel Chalaron. It now contains some ninety relics and souvenirs, including the Favrot and Kirby-Smith collections, and is not the least interesting of the many valuable collections which have been gathered within these walls.

An excellent report of the Historical Committee was presented by Mrs. C. H. Tebault.

Mrs. A. Boisblanc, Chairman, pro tem., of the Credentials Committee, in the absence of Mrs. F. G. Freret, submitted the following:

Since January last there have been nine meetings of this Chapter. The Credentials Committee for the year was composed of Mrs. F. G. Freret, Chairman; Mrs. Joe Davis, Mrs. Heyman, Mrs. George Vincent and Mrs. A. Boisblanc. Since the month of October, in the absence of Mrs. Freret, Mrs. Boisblanc has been acting as Chairman. In Mrs. Freret's time there were twenty admissions, and since I took charge, nine, making in all, twenty-nine admissions during the year.
