While the ballot for Council of Administration was pending,
Past Department Commander Geo. S. Evans moved that the
Assistant Adjutant-General communicate with Comrade Horace
Binney Sargent the expressions of good will of this Twentieth
Annual Encampment towards him.

Carried unanimously.

On motion of Past Department Commander J. G. B. Adams
of Post 5, it was voted that the first five comrades having the
highest number of votes for Council of Administration be declared
elected.

Adopted.

Past Department Commander Geo. W, Creasey reported as
follows on the reunion of veterans at Point of Pines last summer,
and moved that the matter of future reunion be referred to the
incoming Council of Administration.

The report was accepted and recommendation adopted.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON VETERANS ' REUNION, AT
THE POINT OF PINES, SEPT. 2 AND 3, 1885.

Comrades: In accordance with instructions, the committee
made arrangements to have the reunion at the Point of Pines,
September 2 and 3, believing it to be the best place under the
circumstances to hold the first State reunion of veterans. In
point of numbers and enthusiasm the reunion was a success, and
the committee are of the opinion that one should be held each
year in some part of the State, but that it should be held under
the official care of the Department, and the State Convention
make the arrangements. Appended is the financial report of the
committee.

For the committee,

GEORGE W. CREASEY.

Headquakters Department of Massachusetts,
Grand Army of the
12 Pemberton Sq
General Orders, "t Boston, Feb. 10, 1885.

No. 1. /

1 Havino; been called by the sufl'rages of my comrades, through
their representatives in the late Department Convention, to the high and
honorable position of Department Commander, I hereby assume the
duties and responsibilities of the office, sincerely trusting that I may
receive the hearty and zealous co operation of every comrade of the
Department, w^hether he be the highest official or the humblest comrade
in the ranks.

Comrades, there has been committed to our hands a truly grand
and noble worlv — that of building up and maintaining an organization
composed of men who periled their lives that the nation might live, and
the principal ol)jects and aims of which are to see that no worthy com-
rade who wore the l^lue, nor the widows and orphans of our fellow-
comrades, suffer for the comforts of life, become inmates of an almshouse
or fill a pauper's grave

Do we fully realize the importance and sacredness of our worlv?
If so, I trust that Post officers and comrades will at once devise and put
into immediate and practical operation in their respective localities
measures whereby every worthy old veteran may be sought out and, if
possible, brought into our ranks, to join with us in our Avork; for the
fact still remains, that thousands of our former comrades who touched
elbows with us in the long ago are for some reason still outside our
beloved organization.

Under the wise and zealous administration of my predecessors in
office, our Department has moved steadily forward in its course of pros-
perity, until todaj' it stands second to none, unless it be in numerical
strength : and every comrade has reason to feel justly proud of the posi-
tion which we now occupy. But the work must not stop here : this is
our harvest time; and I sincerely trust that every comrade will at once
interest himself in the work of gathering into the fold of the Grand
Army every worthy olil veteran.

II. I desire to call especial attention to the grand carnival to be
held in the city of Boston the coming spring under the auspices and for
the benefit of our Soldiers' Home, the pride of every comrade and a
living monument to our devotion and fidelity to the principles of the
Order, and sincerely trust that not one single Post in all our Department
will fail to contribute in some way or degree to the success of this graud
and noble enterprise.

Additional appointments will appear in futui'e orders.
