A letter from Miss Lincoln, written at the hospital, regretting her inability to attend the December meeting, and hoping for further service with us, was read and, enclosed in glass, was presented for preservation.

Especial mention of the interest and service of all was made by members present; especially of the long life and public service of Mr. Hooper and his contributions to Medford history in the register's pages.

Discussion of publication followed; reports of officers for the past year were read and accepted, and the present board of officers re-elected; all suggestions made were referred to the directors for consideration.

On April 17, 1922, occurred the next meeting, those of February and March having been omitted, by vote of directors. Delegates from the G. A. R., W. R. C. and the D. A. R. were present. The American Legion and the Spanish War Veterans were also invited but were not represented. The speaker, Mr. Harlan P. Knight (of Somerville Historical Society), gave a most interesting address on ‘The Flags of our Country,’ illustrated by lantern slides showing a succession from that of the Norseman to that of the Allies in the World War.

The May meeting, on the 15th, was addressed by Capt. Lemuel Pope of West Medford, who told of the ‘Battle of Mobile Bay,’ and who presented the Society with an oil painting, executed by a friend of his who was there in the action. It shows the various ships in line, that of Admiral Farragut being the second.

The records show quite a number of accessions to our collection at this time, and a few new members.

The library has had its usual increase, some volumes of local history, but mainly by the register's exchanges.

Some change in publication was contemplated by the directorate but found impracticable and the register has been published as usual.
