pledged and gratefully accepted. Let it be said, he was true to every offer, and among his many, many subsequent kindnesses, he secured for my mother and the children, excepting myself, free tranportation to Philadelphia. In no way was there anything wanting in General Meade's generosity as a man, kindness as a friend, sympathy as a relative, dignity as a soldier, or loyalty to his country; and so I shall never forget the opportune visit, the goodly offices, and the soldierly bearing of General George C. Meade. Instead now of hate, war, and death, we have faith, hope, and charity; but the greatest of these is charity. Esto perpetua. [From the Baltimore, Md., Sun, December 7, 1901.]
