POSTS .

Two Posts have surrendered their charters during the year,
viz.. Post 86 of Maynard, and Post 98 of Princeton. These
Posts were small and had been ailing for a long time, and owing
to their climatic surroundings the}' were forced to surrender. The
latter Post had become so demoralized that they have never made
their reports for the last quarter they were in existence, conse-
quently their affairs were not "closed up honorabh' " and the
members are not eligible to admission to other Posts until that
indebtedness is paid.

Three Posts have been reorganized during the year, viz. :
Post 14 of Hopkinton; Post 133 of Plainville ; and Post 146 of
New Bedford.

Ten new Posts were organized during the year, viz. : —



Post 86 .


Northampton.


Post 137 .


. East Douglas.


" 125 .


. Pittsfield.


" 138 .


. West Acton.


" 128 .


Ipswich.


" 140 .


. Athol.


" 130 .


. Medway.


" 141 .


Harwich.


" 132 .


Sandwich.


" 147 .


Amherst.



These Posts are reported in generally excellent condition, and
some of them have taken an advanced position in our Order.



MISSIONARY WORK.



The missionary work of 1881 has been continued with mag-
nificent results, as shown by all reports. The ploughing that has
been done in previous years by other administrations, together
with the active work of the odicers of the year just closing, places



100 HISTORY DEPT, OF MASS., G.A.R.

the Department on a sure foundation not only numerically but
financially. As a result of these labors three new Posts have been
organized since January 1, and as many more are awaiting organi-
zation. I see no reason why the growth of the Department should
not continue for several 3'ears yet, and with careful, earnest work
on the part, not alone of Department officers, but of Posts and
comrades, I predict a larger growth for the year to come than that
which has gladdened our hearts for the one that is closing.

COUNTY ORGANIZATIONS.

In previous reports I have referred to this matter and have
expressed my faith in them. I renew it again, and would see
them encouraged with much caution and not officially. There may
be danger in allowing to be established in different parts of the
Commonwealth headquarters for such and such counties, with all
the paraphernalia and machinery as a sort of dividing line or
wedge to separate the Posts from the Department. I believe that
the machinery of the Grand Army is as complicated as it should
be, in fact its very simplicity is the strongest point in its favor.
Therefore, in these days when certain organizations are clamoring
for recognition by our Order, even with half an eye on the perpetu-
ation of the Grand Army, I am decidedly of the opinion that
their advances should be firmly but politely declined.

The County Summary has been omitted in this report, as the
necessity of a continuation of it does not seem to exist. I how-
ever, beg to present herewith a tabulated report by counties.

SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 103



RECORDS.

The conditions of the records of the Department is a matter
to which I have given much thought. The older members of the
Department will recall the fire that destroyed our headquarters on
May 80, 1878. At that time not only our own records and prop-
erty, but all belonging to National Headquarters, which had but
the day before been transferred from New York, was a total
loss ; and all we have so far as the early history of the Depart-
ment is concerned is rather a matter of tradition. We have noth-
ing definite previous to 1873, either written or printed, and even
our records for 1873 and 1874 will require immediate attention,
as they are partly written and partially made up of newspaper
cuttings, and the latter are turning yellow and becoming other-
wise indistinct.

I am sure the material is at hand or can be secured that will
complete these records from the earliest days, especially as many
of the comrades are living who were active then.

I have endeavored to secure as much material as possible in
the years I have been at headquarters, but have not been as suc-
cessful as I could wish, owing to a press of other business. In
view of the fact that I may have more leisure to attend to such mat-
ters in the year to come, I propose to the Department, with your
permission, to secure the information necessary and put it in such
shape as will seem to be the most desirable, and at some future
meeting of the Department I will submit the result of my labors
for your approval. So far as the expense is concerned, I would
suggest that none be incurred without the approval of the incom-
ing Council of Administration, and then only for postage, etc.

HEADQUARTERS.

The oflRce we have used for a little over four years past is
wanted for other purposes and must be vacated at once. Whether
the new administration will succeed in obtaining so desirable a
location is a question, but I trust that the climbing propensities
of our comrades will be taken into consideration when the selec-
tion is made.

The amount of business transacted at headquarters has aver-
aged with the previous year not only as to the correspondence
received, but forwarded, with somewhat of an increase in the
latter. Twelve General Orders and one hundred and twelve
Special Orders have been issued under the present administration.

During the latter part of the year I have been obliged to absent
myself from headquarters more or less, but was satisfied that
naught could ^o wrong under the guidance of the acting Assistant



104 HISTORY DEPT. OF MASS., G.A.R.

Adjutant-General and the young man who has seemed to have
become a part of headquarters.

I respectfully present a recommendation at this time regarding
the incoming Assistant Adjutant-General, not only that the
salary and extra allowance for clerk hire be continued, but that
his actual hotel and travelling expenses while attending the ses-
sions of the National Encampment be paid by the Department.

CONCLUSION.

Comrades, I presume it is generally known that with the close
of this Encampment my official connection with headquarters will
cease. After nearly seven years' occupancy of the position as
Assistant Adjutant-General, it would be strange indeed if I did
not look upon my connection with the Department with mingled
feelings of interest and satisfaction, especially the latter, when it
is taken into consideration that I have seen some wonderful
changes in the condition of the Department. I have seen its
membership go down to 7,550 and its finances at a very low
point, and today we see a handsome surplus on hand and 12,600
members, a larger paying number than ever before, and the end is
not yet. I am sure the glorious future of the Department is
assured, and that no backward step will be taken for years at
least.

In taking leave of you, my comrades, and in severing my
official connection with headquarters and the Department, I can-
not refrain from expressing my sincere and heartfelt appreciation
of favors received from all, without reserve, and 1 bespeak for
my successor the same cordial and fraternal relations.

JAMES F. MEECH,

Assistant Adjutant- General.

It is with greatest pleasure that I present to you this most
favorable report of the financial condition of the Department at
the present time. For the first time within the past ten years
the Department is absolutely free from debt and has a handsome
balance at its credit. This most pleasant condition of affairs is
due to the increased membership and the consequent demand for
books and papers ; thus not only does au increased membership
add numerically to our numbers, but it adds very materially to
the financial standing of the Department.

With the hope that the present good showing of our finances
may be an incentive and a stimulus for us all to labor for the
future progress and strengthening of our Order, I am,

Fraternally yours,

GEORGE L. GOODALE,
Assistant Quartermaster-General .



REPORT OF INSPECTOR.

Headquarters Dept. of Mass., G.A.R. ,
Boston, Jan. 29, 1883.

James F. Meech, Assistant Adjutant-General.

Comrade : I have the honor to submit herewith the consoli-
dated report in duplicate of the inspections of the Posts in this
Department for %q year ending Sept. 30, 1882.



SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 107

The report includes 148 Posts, being the whole number in
existence at that date, and I believe that I am not mistaken in
sa3nng that this is the first time in the history of the Department
that the Inspector has been able to make a full report.

Number of comrades in good standing Sept. 30, 12,288
The work of the Ritual is committed to memory and

properly performed in 71 Posts.
