Chapter Report [p. 110-112]

The Chapter reports with pleasure the celebration of all anniversaries, with appropriate exercises. It was our privilege to bestow upon twelve of the beloved Veterans of Dick Dowling Camp the Cross of Honor.

In order to raise money to defray the expenses of the Veterans to the Little Rock Reunion, May 14, 1911, the Chapter sold small Confederate flags upon the streets of Houston with Mrs. J. M. Gibson, the capable and willing First Vice President of the Chapter as Chairman, assisted by an able corps of ladies. The neat sum of 585.85 was raised, being quite sufficient to send the entire Camp. Thus, of course, was a great pleasure and gratification to the Chapter.

Made wreaths on Memorial Day and distributed them at the different cemeteries.

A box of money was sent to our dear old ladies at the Home.

One transfer has been made during the year. Our Registrar reports 248 members in good standing.

Send $1 for Reagan fountain.
