rej)re.sen'ative action. Now such representatives are to be found
in our present pension committee of the National P^ncampment,
about whose fitness for the position, the manner of whose selec-
tion, or in regard to whose motives I have y^et to hear the first
whisper of a suspicion. Mark you, I do not set up as an enc3'clo-
pa^dia of information as to just what is most desirable in the line
of pension legislation. I have my own opinion with regard to
certain propositions on this head, and will further promise not to
refuse a dollar which the government will give me under any
scheme likely to receive enactment. But the point I am in duty
bound to press upon your earnest consideration is that when a
Post, a Department, or National Encampment appoints a com-
mittee in good faith, and with full power to do a certain work
for that Post or that Encampment, every inspiration of fraternity,
if fraternity is worth anything, every impulse of loyalty, if loyalty
means anything, demands that the organization which puts them
forward as its mouthpiece shall stand steadfastly at their backs,
and not basely desert them nor heap gratuitous insults upon them
while they are doing its behests.

Now all committees are human and may err. But no com-
mittee holds a life-tenure of its office, and when it fails to do the
work for which it was constituted, discharge it on the first oppor-
tunity or instruct it as circumstances seen) to warrant. But may
we never again so stultify ourselves in the eyes of the people as
w^e have during the past year, by having our duly authorized
representatives appearing before members of Congress recom-
mending certain pension legislation, and antagonized by other
comrades favoring a different scheme. We cannot alTord it.



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

" In union there is strength." AVhen our organization shall
reach that stage where any Post as such feels at liberty to
petition Congress in the interest of any measure dear to its mem-
bership, irrespective or in spite of the wishes or petitions of other
Posts, that moment dates the beginning of our downfall. Con-
current action in Posts and Departments, finding further con-
sideration and final enactment from the deliberations of the
National Encampment, I honestly believe and unhesitatingly
declare the only safe course for us to pursue in this day of our
great and still growing strength, else we unwittingly reproduce
certain phases of our army life where commands pulled apart
through jealousy, and inevitable shame and disaster followed.
Let us magnify our points of agreement, minimize our points of
difference, and move in solid and unwavering columns to secure
legislation which common consent declares must be delayed no
longer. But whatever ends we aim to accomplish in this direc-
tion, let us take particular care that they be not secured by any
complications of statutory provision which shall include the
putting on the pension roll, on an equal footing with our Union
comrades, of the veterans of the Rebel army ; not yet.

Comrades, I must not close this address without expressing
to you my most sincere gratitude for the triple honors which you
have successively conferred upon me. The unanimity with which
you elevated me to the honorable position which I am soon to
vacate will remain a green and cherished spot in my memory
while life continues, attended as it will be by the consciousness
that, while I fell far short of my own ideal, and perhaps, of your
expectations, in my own way I have endeavored to deserve the
honors your confidence imposed. For whatever results have
been achieved during the past year, a large share of credit must
be given to those whom your suffrages associated with me, and I
here thank them publicly for all they have done in behalf of our
graud Order. To the members of my official Staff, whose duty
has been so faithfully performed, my thanks and yours are
especially due. Our relations have been of the pleasantest
character, and my valedictory is made the harder to utter by
carrying with it, as it does, the severance of our official relations.
The same is true, in a large measure, of my personal Staff, to
whom I am especially indebted for their labors under the direc-
tion of the Inspector. To many Post Commanders and comrades,
I am under obligations for favors and courtesies, both personal
and in the interests of the Department. To each and all, official
and private, I tender the thanks of my truh' grateful heart, and
my most cordial good wishes for the future. It has been one of
the proud distinctions of my life to have been your leader for a
year, but I am prouder still of those relations that I sustained to
this glorious country and my dear native State which entitle me
to a place in the i-anks of this truly Grand Army of the Republic.

LOSS






NINETEENTH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 27i)

Of the one hundred and eighty Posts comprising this Depart-
ment, one hundred and twenty have gained in membership, three
have the same number as one year ago, and forty have lost in
number. Post making the largest per cent in gain is Post 124,
East Bridgewater.

The charter of I. D. Paull Post No. 55 of Taunton, on recom-
mendation of the Department Commander, was revoked by vote
of the Council of Administration, at a meeting held at Depart-
ment Headquarters, July 12, 1884. Said number was afterwards
given to J. C. Freeman Post of Provincetown.

Number of rejections during the year, seventy-six.

One hundred and ninety- five comrades have died during the
year, — an excess over last year of twenty-six. This is not to be
wondered at, when we take into consideration the fact that the
Departmeut has increased in membership.

The obituary reports from Posts up to the third quarter, end-
ing September 30, were so few (although attention was called to it
twice in General Orders) that in order to carry out the resolution
of the last P]ncampmeut in regard to a memorial page, it became
necessary to prepare a blank on which to make these reports ; by
this means I am able to report one hundred and thirty out of the
one hundred and niuety-five who have died, giving the name, age,
rank, company, regiment or ship, and the Post to which the
deceased belonged.

It is to be hoped in the years to come that every name will
be reported, in order that a complete record may be kept at
headquarters.

POSTS.

Twenty-one new Posts have been mustered during the year,
as follows, viz. : —
