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

Weekly benefits are paid by 53 Posts, and thirty Posts are
paying regnlar amounts averaging $3.07J per week, and twenty-
three Posts paying such sums as the Post may vote in each case.

The Relief Fund is systematically expended in one hundred
and twenty-six Posts.

The amount of money reported in the relief funds of the sev-
eral Posts Sept. oC, 1883, is $105,851.47, being an increase of
$16,570.97 over the report of last year.

The amount of money expended in relief for the year ending
Sept. 30, 1883, is $34,191.45, being an increase of $5,761.92
over last report.

The largest amount reported in any one Relief Fund is
$12,569.59, by Post 58 of Weymouth.

The largest amount expended for charity is $5,292.21, by
Post 5 of Lynn.

The increase in membership during the last j'ear has been
thirteen per cent. The increase of money in relief funds over
that of last year is nearly twenty per cent, while the increase in
the amount expended from that source has been over twenty-three
per cent.

The spring inspection found many of the Posts in poor con-
dition to properly exemplify the work of the Ritual, the changes
that have been made having just been promulgated, and many of
the Post officers, especially in Posts in the smaller towns, putting
a wrong construction upon the same, therefore it was not strange
to find many Posts having as many different waj^s of performing
the work. But the officers detailed as Assistant Inspectors
attended faithfully to the duty assigned them, instructing where
it was necessary, and I am happj' to say that these instructions
were faithfully followed and carried out, and today the several
Posts in this Department are performing the work of the Ritual
in a uniformity of manner that has never been excelled since the
organization of the Department of the Grand Army in this vState.

The system of spring visitation to Posts by Assistant Inspec-
tors for the purpose of instruction, adopted by the previous
administration, has been followed this year with good results.
Many of the Posts reported in excellent or good condition can but
admit that such a good result was in great part owing to the
instruction and advice given them by their inspecting officer, and
I earnestly recommend the continuance of this system.

In conclusion, comrades, I desire to convey to the officers
detailed as Assistant Inspectors my high appreciation of their
efforts in aiding and assisting me in performing the duties of the
office to which I had been appointed, and to thank them for the
kindness and courtesy shown me on all occasions when brought
in official connection with them, also to the many comrades for
that fraternity of feeling that has ever been manifested by them



EIGHTEENTH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 191

towards me whenever my duties have called me in contact with
them, and particularly to the Commander of the Department and
the Assistant Adjutant-General, who have ever been ready with
their aid and counsel, without which the success of my labors
would have been in vain.

I have the honor to remain,

Yours in F., C. and L.,

HORACE A. SAWYER,

Inspector.



REPORT OF CHAPLAIN.

Headquarters Dept. of Mass., G.A.R.
Boston, Jau. 30, 1884.

Commander and Comrades : Again we are assembled, at the
close of another year, to greet each other in Fraternity, Charity
and Loyalt}'.

The year just passed has been a pleasant and prosperous one,
and each one of us present has cause for thankfulness to Him
who hath preserved the body and can save the soul. Commander,
God hath preserved you, and each of your associates, at the head
of the Department during the year, and as you have gone from
place to place, meeting the various Posts of the Department,
giving advice, encouragement and counsel, your labors have not
been in vain, for large numbers have been added to our ranks,
and the Department of Massachusetts is now in a most healthy
and prosperous condition. But death, the enemy of all mankind,
has been exceedingly busy in our midst. A Past Department
Commander and a Past Department Chaplain have both suc-
cumbed to the grim messenger, and each has gone to his reward.

Past Department Commander John A. Hawes died at his
