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

The total expense for inspection dnriug the past year has
been $128.10.

In conclusion I desire to express my hearty thanks to all the
comrades with whom I have had official connection daring the
year, and particularly to the Assistant Adjutant-General for con-
tinuous courtesies and unvarying kindness.

Respectfully submitted in F., C. and L..

WILLIAM L. BAIRD,

Ins2:)ector.



REPORT OF THE JUDGE ADVOCATE.

Boston, Jan. 30, 1882.
George W. Creasey, Commander Dept. of Mass., G.A.R.

Commander and Comrades : I herewith submit my report as
Judge Advocate for the current official year.

Eight opinions, involving twenty-one distinct propositions,
have been rendered in cases regularly referred for my decision.

Appeals have been taken in two instances, in the first of
which the decision of this Department Avas sustained and in the
second it was overruled.

I have been called upon to review the proceedings of but one
court-martial.

Nearly all the questions submitted to me were upon a proper
construction of the Rules and Regulations and to these I have
cheerfully given my time and attention, because such an unusual
amount of business coming to my department indicated that the
members of our Order respected the Rules and Regulations estab-
lished for our govei'ument and desired to be guided by them in
every particular. And this observation leads me to remai'k that
I find among the comrades generally a very intelligent conception
of the meaning and intent of the written law of the Order. I
desire, however, to call attention, more particularly of Post
Commanders and Adjutants, to the importance of strictly comply-
ing with the requirements of the Rules and Regulations in regard
to official correspondence and the right of appeal. All the neces-
sary forms of correspondence are to be found on pp. 38, 39 of
the pamphlet entitled, " Manual for the Guidance of the Grand
Army of the Republic," a copy of which is or should be in the
