A. R, and attendant reunions, held in Phila delphia, September 4th-9th, 1899, printed herewith, cover so fully, and in so great detail, all that was planned and done to make the stay of our Comrades and their friends in the city of Philadelphia a pleasant one, that little need be said by me as the Chairman of the General Committee. The following were the societies holding their annual ses sions here: the National Encampment of the Grand Armyof the Republic, the National Convention of the Naval Vet erans, the Union Ex - Prisoners Of War Association, the Woman's Relief Corps, the Ladies Of the G. A. R., the Baugh ters Of Veterans, the Army Nurses, and the Loyal Home Workers. In addition to these there were held a large number Of regimental and other reunions, as named in detail in the report of the Committee on Camp Fires and Reunions. The transportation companies and the public authorities agree in the statement that there were never before so large a number of strangers in our city, and also that there was not an accident of any kind on railroad or railway cars, and that good order and decorum were universally Observed. The Reunion was honored by the attendance of the Pres ident of the United States and by members of his Cabinet, by other prominent Officials Of States and Of Nation, and by Officers high in rank in the Army and in the Navy Of the United States.
