he Museum, Mr. Rouss suggested, should be left to the decision of the ten senior generals of the Confederate army, now living. These are stated by General Marcus J. Wright, of the National War Record Office, to be as follows: 1. James Longstreet, lieutenant-general October 9, 1862. 2. Stephen D. Lee, lieutenant-general (temporary rank) January 23, 1864. 3. Ambrose P. Stewart, lieutenant-general January 23, 1864. 4. S. B. Buckner, lieutenant-general September 20, 1864. 5. Wade Hampton, lieutenant-general February 14, 1865. 6. Gustavus W.

the noble women composing it, from the inauguration of their body, as the Hollywood Memorial Association, directly after the close of the war, for the purpose of caring for the graves of the Confederate dead. Mr. Van Doren's suggestion that the General Association proposed and the ladies of Richmond be joined in common effort and purpose, seemed, from the response of Mr. Rouss, to be favorably entertained by him. The reply of the Cavalry Association of United Confederate Veterans of New Orleans, La., to the proposition of Mr. Rouss, appeared in the Picayune of January 6, 1895. Whilst favoring the establishment of a National Museum, they were disinclined to yield their garner to another location. They urge that they have a magnificent fire-proof building filled with over 4,000 mementoes, the collection of nearly thirty years, embracing every conceivable species of relic, and the determination of every ex-Confederate is to preserve it in and to New Orleans, as long as there is one

The noble women composing our Confederate Memorial Literary Society have not only a considerable fund which they have acumulated by devoted effort, but they possess also, what has been declared to be, the finest and most extensive collection of Confederate relics ever made. It was formed by the late Mrs. Mary De Renne, of Savannah, Ga., who spared no expense from her abundant means in its enrichment. In appealing interest and historic value it could scarcely now be equalled. The ladies of the Richmond Society, it is understood, have secured extensive and important additions to it, and it may not be doubted will be increasingly successful in their continued efforts. The prime consideration now undoubtedly is the enhancement of their fund by the subscriptions of our wealthy citizens toward the ensuring of the sum

Toward these ends he proposed the formation of a General Association, the objects of which would be the collection of records and relics, and the raising of a fund of $200,000, or more, with which to erect a proper building for their permanent preservation, and to provide an income for its maintenance. Lee Camp of Confederate Veterans, Commander E. Leslie Spence, promptly responded to Mr. Rouss, and delegated Major Norman V. Randolph to visit him and ascertain as definitely as he might his plans and views, and further, to submit the claims of Richmond as the place, and the Confederate Memorial Literary Society (which now owns the house occupied by President Jefferson Davis) as the organization to which the patriotic trust might worthily be committed.
