Excerpt from Address to Department Encampment Grand Army of the Republic: Saratoga, June 26-27, 1902
At Rochester last year you elected me Department Commander, and all through my term I have tried to show appreciation by serving my Comrades faithfully, and truly hope I have done so. In each and every instance I have had their interests at heart, and the welfare of this great Department.
It has been a pleasant duty for me, and there has been but little friction in the Posts. I firmly believe if every Comrade would stop to think and realize the true meaning of Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty, and recall the time between '61 and '65, when we shared each other's troubles and joys - yes, and helped to bear one another's burdens - there would be no friction what ever, and a feeling of comradeship would prevail throughout this Department.
