Reunion Watterson'a Plea.
Upon taking the chair as presiding offi
cer, Mr. Watterson said:
(Standing by the Father of Waters let me
flint give thanks to Uod, that, from the
Falls of St. Anthony to the Gulf of Mexico
li flows through an unbroken succession
of American stales; at once a chain and an
emblem of perpetual union between the
liorili and the south.
It was to gain this outlet to the sea thai
we a. mi alien the Lou sianas or France, it
was to keep It open that the yeomen of
tin great northwest took the Held. The
purpoe to close ii proved an error uf fur
reaching magnitude; but If It be true, a
t.miion tells us, that "History Is little mice
than the register of the crimes, fnllhK ami
mibfortunes of mankind." what must not Ml
of us have to answer for when rms.n
comes to the final disposition of the fin'.
of a conflict which even now bait In
philosophy; because the south, fore-doumcU
to defeat, risked all and had everything t
lose; the wonder being, and the glorj. that
against such odds the eelf-ronfldent bul
vanquished and vanished confederacy was
able to hold out so long.
Those of us who survive that dread
ordeal are old men now and each annual
roll-call brings yet fewer of us together.
Presently there will remain among the
living not one who fought on either side.
Happy those who have been spared to look
upon a land never again to b wet by
fraternal blood and a people reunited for
ever in hand and heart. The myatlc chords
of memory, "stretching from every battle
field end patriotic grave to every living
heart and hearthstone," touched long ago
by "the angels of our better nature," swell
at last the universal chorus of the union;
the memory ojt deeds of klndneas and of
valor dr.if, ot a common blood and race,

we were one people then and we are one
people now, tho war of seotlons a mutual

"I bare two little girls who ha to bee

weather when it seemingly subsided.
The next winter wheu it became old

also in her head where it would take the
hair out and leave bare patches as large
as a quarter of a dollar. At the same
time her arms were tore the whole

with him for several wneks and the
child grew worse all of the timo. Her

penetrate yet a little further up the mighty

Stephen D. Lee from the United Confed
erate Veterans today. General Grant re
ferred to his acquaintance with General
Lee, which, he said, continued through
many years and afforded him the greatest
happiness and gratification. He reviewed
the career of General Lee, who " died
"leaving an untarnished record and a
memory deservedly honored with admira
tion and respect, because of his noble life
and character, of which his surviving son
and friends will be ever proud, and which,
all who follow him, may emulate."
Continuing, General Grant said: "I, my
self, am especially grateful to have this
opportunity of speaking In honor of Gen
eral Stephen Lee s memory, as less than
two years ago, he, my kind friend and
hospitable host, took me over .these very
historic grounds at Vlcksburg, and we re
called together the Incidents of the fearful
struggle which occurred here, In 18GS, where
he and 'I had both been wounded. General
Lee serving during that struggle as a dis
tinguished officer of the confederate army,
and I being with my father, who com
manded the forces of the opposition union
army. We talked over the battles ot the

only with rejoicings that peace had been
established and that harmony, patriotism
and loyalty to one flag now exist through
out our great land.
Quotes His Father.
"In the shadow' of this beautiful statue,
built to the memory of this knightly and
chlvalrlo soldier, I am glad to recall the
earnest wish cherished constantly by my
owq dear father, General Ulysses 8. Grant,
for peace and harmony among the Ameri
can people. This wish was shown Ir the
terms granted here at Vlcksburg, and also
April S, 1866, when at Appomattox, upon
reading that the side arms, horses and,
private property of his officers and en
listed men oould be retained by them, Gen
eral Robert E. Lee said to General Grant,
These terms will have Indeed a most
happy effect upon my army and upon the
I am glad to recall that this sentiment
for harmony between the north and the
south, begun at Appomattox, was cher
ished by General Grant until the end of his
Ufa, as shown by him during the adminis
tration of President Johnson and the re
construction period, when General Grant
stood firmly and determinedly for the
promises he had given to General Robert
E. Lee and to 'the south, as he did, also,
throughout his own two administrations.
as president of the United States, even up
to the last hours of his existence. This Is
evident in a message written by General
Grant during his last Illness, after the
loss of his voice, to one of the physicians
attending him, a short time before his
death, of which message I will read you
a few lines:
My father wrote: 'I am thankful for
the providential extension of my time, be
cause it haa enabled me to see for my
Self the happy harmony that haa so sud
denly sp.ung up between those engaged a
few short years ago in deadly conflict. It
haa been an Inestimable blessing to me
to hear the kind expressions toward me In
person from all parte of our country, from
people of all nationalities, ot all religions
and from confederate and national troops
alike. They have brought joy to my heart
If they have not effected a cure.'
' "I venture to read here today also on
this touching occasion another message
General Grant wrote on this subject. In
finishing his 'Personal Memoirs' at Mount
MoOregor. a few daya before his death.
He wrote aa follows:
" 'I feel that we are on the eve of
