III. Adjutants' and Quartermasters' reports for first quarter will be
due April 1, and I trust they will be forwarded promptly. Adjutants
and Quartermasters are reminded that they should confer not only
regarding the number reported last quarter, but account for gains and
losses, and give tlie names as called for in the Recapitulation of Muster
Roll and notes 1,2,3 and 4. Care should be exercised that the number
remaining in good standing in form A, and the number paid for on form
B, shall agree. I would call attention of Post Commanders to the neces-
sity of carefully examining the reports, seeing that all requirements are
complied with, and, after signing both reports, forward the same,
together with the per capita tax, eight cents per member in good stand-
ing, to these headquarters Bear in mind the fact that the per capita tax
has been increased from six to eight cents per quarter

IV A year's supply of blank Obituary Reports have been sent to
each Post, and I w^ould call the attention of the Post Commander to the
necessity of the Adjutant filling out this blank when there has been any
loss by death during the quarter, in order that the memorial page may be
complete

No 3. )

In accordance with Rules and Regulations, and in compliance with
General Orders, No 11, from National Headquarters, Monday. !\Lay 30,
will be observed bv the Posts of this Department as Memorial Day

Nineteen years have passed since the first General Order was issued
that inaugurated the beautiful custom of strewing with flowers or other
testimonials of love and respect, the graves of comrades Avho died in
defence of their country. For the great heart that prompted that order
the taps have sounded, and the liirht of his life has <ronc out ; brave,
generous friend, with hearts of gratitude we will remember him, and his
resting place will be strewn with flowers of allection. in accordance with
the sentiment of his General Orders, No II.

Upon this day the veterans livinsr will call to mind the heroic,
unselfish spirit of "their comrades with whom in the old days they shared
the fortunes of tlie camp, the march the battle; they will gather about
the resting places of the Grand Army of the dead, and in sweet com-
munion Avith the memories of the past, will renew their devotion to the
principles of the Grand Army of the living, and humanity Avill be bene-
fitted. The loval citizens as they gather a])out the graves of patriotic



584 HISTORY PEPT. OF MASS., G.A.R.

men, will recall how they, by their devotion to duty while living, sus-
tained the liberties of the people and preserved the unity of the Republic.

In grateful recognition of the inestimable services of these men, may
the good people of the Commonwealth, as they gather to do honor to
their memory, receive the inspiration of their example, that the standard
of American citizenship may never lower, and to the end that this gov-
ernment " of the people, by the people and for the people, may not perish
from the face of the earth "

It is left with you, comrades, to make such arrangements for the
observance of the day as in your judgment may seem most appropriate.
As the safety of a nation depends upon the loyalty of its people, dis-
chai'ge your duties upon this occasion in a manner that will remind the
elders and impress firmly upon the young the lessons of patriotism and
devotion to the dear old flag, so truly exemplified in the lives of the men
whose memory we hold in grateful remembrance.

Discountenance the tendency that prevails to make the day one of
pleasure alone ; call upon the good people of your respective localities to
join with you in the tender and beautiful ceremonies of the day ; let
every loyal soul pay its tribute of respect to the memory of the men who
sacrificed all for one country and one flag, to the end that the ideal of
American valor and patriotism may be kept at the same high standard at
which they placed it.

The custom of Posts attending divine service in a body on the Sun-
day preceding Memorial Day is a good one, and its continuance is ear-
nestly recommended.

Post Chaplains are requested to forward to these headquarters reports
of the exercises of their respective Posts, including the number of officers
and men present for duty.
