Mrs. President and Ladies:I have to report the hearty and generous response of this Chapter to the appeal for means to make comfortable and brighter the declining years of the brave and faithful defenders of the Lost Cause, now inmates of the Soldiers' Home. Since this Committee was organized many contributions have been secured from and through members of the Chapter. Working in co-operation with the Ich Dien Circle of King's Daughters, the originators of the work for the Infirmary, the best results have been had. Fifty-five dollars represents the cash contributions for the Infirmary, besides many objects for comfort, such as clothing, chairs, rugs, cushions, reading matter and treats, including the Christmas treat. As an intemized report has been read at each monthly meeting, I will not repeat. I desire to thank all the members and their friends for cordial co-operation and assistance in this pious work.
