Mrs. N. V. Randolph made a beautiful and touching appeal to the Association in behalf of the Jefferson Davis monument, asking that this Confederated Association assist the U. D.

On motion of Mrs. Lewis Graham it was asked that a published account be given by the Treasurer of the Davis Monument Fund of the amounts already subscribed by the different cities and States now in the hands of the Treasurer of the fund at Richmond, Va. The motion was carried and Mrs. Randolph stated that two books would be kept, one for the contributions of the U. D. C., the other for the Southern Memorial Association.

An invitation was extended by Mrs. Basil Duke to the Association to attend a reception to be given at the Galt House from 4 to 6 P. M., in honor of Mrs. Addison Hayes, Miss Varina Howell Davis Hayes, and Mrs. Weed, of Florida.
