will be impossible to appropriate a like sum this year, without
increasing the pe/- ccqnta tax still more, which would be, were it
possible, a very unwise thing to do. As there is much doubt in
the minds of many of the comrades in regard to the continuance
of the Bureau, I respectfully suggest that the report of the Super-
intendent be referred to a committee, with instructions to report
to the Encampment such action as it may think advisable for the
best interests of all concerned.

CONCLUSION.

Comrades, as I turn back to you the trusts which you so
unanimously placed in my keeping a year ago, allow me to extend
to you my most sincere thanks for the great honor you then con-
ferred upon me. I accepted the office with a full sense of its
responsibility and approached it, I confess, with a certain degree
of doubt and hesitancy. I comprehended the fact that there was
not that feeling of good-fellowship that had existed in our ranks
heretofore, that we had not only become divided upon an impor-
tant question, but that personal animosities were entering largely



TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL ENCAimiENT. 533

into the contest, and if not stopped the consequences would be
ruinous. This state of things was not pleasant to contemplate;
but thanks to the Great Coniniander of us all, the fog of distrust
and ill-feeling is lifting, and the bright sunshine of Fraternity
and good-will is returning. Let us all sincerely hope that our
noble old ship will encounter no more such experiences ; but that
from this on, until she takes us all safely into port, it may sail in
the calm waters of brotherly love. May the great w^ork for which
we are organized go bravely on to the end that suffering may be
relieved and humanity benefitted. As I look back today over the
year that has gone, the retrospect, while dotted here and there
with shadow, is in the main pleasant. The friendships that have
been formed, the kindly words of encouragement and good-will
from those who have preceded me in this otHce, and the cordial
reception that has been given me on all sides will be among the
pleasantest memories for me in the future. As I retire from this
honorable position, the importance of the Grand Arm}'' never
seemed greater than at present. We have passed the meridian of
our existence and find ourselves now in the afternoon of life ; with
the advancing years the infirmities of age increase, and the calls
upon our charities grow larger. We have made a grand record in
the past and let us see to it, comrades, that nothing shall inter-
fere to prevent its continuance to the end. Accept if you please
my best wishes for the prosperity of the several Posts you have the
honor to represent, and for yourselves individually and to the end
let us be

" Comrades known in marches man.y,
Comrades tried in dangers many,
Comrades boimd b.v memories many,

Brothers ever let us be.
Wounds or sickness may divide us,
Marchiua; orders may divide us.
But whatever fate betide us,

Brothers still in heart we'll be.

Comrades known by faith the clearest,
Tried when death was near and nearest,
Bound we are by ties the dearest,

Brothers evermore to be.
And if spared and growinii,- older,
Shoulder still in line Avith shoulder,
And Avith hearts no thrill the colder.

Brothers ever let us be.

By conmiunion of the banner.
Crimson, Avhite and starry banner,
By the baptism of the banner.

Brothers of one church are we.
Creed nor faction can divide us.
Race nor hinsiuajie can divide us.
For, whatever fate betide us,

Comrades of one flag are Ave."
