A pleasant feature of the re-union was the eloquent address by Captain W.F. Chamberlain of Hannibal, Mo., past Department Commander G.A.R., Mo.

The camp fire at Lippincott's Hall was an enjoyable one and the boys had a merry time. There were songs, speeches, and the boys told old army stories. Capt. Sommerville presided and J. M. Brown led the singing. Speeches were made by Capt. Mooney, Capt. J.M. Hyman and Jonathan Johnson.

Oct. 16, 1902., 9 a.m. - A large number of the 50th Illinois, 21st Missouri and others gathered at Lippincott's Hall and a pleasant meeting of the Shiloh survivors was held, Col. Hanna of the 50th Illinois presiding. T.W. Holman, Secretary of the Shiloh Battlefield Association, addressed the meeting, giving a brief outline of the work done by the National Military Park Commissioners and that yet to be completed. On a call to see how many were present who participated in the battle April 6-7, thirty-one arose to their feet.

2 P.M. - The 21st Missouri held a short business session when it was decided to have the proceedings fo all our annual re-unions printed. A collection to defray the expense was taken and $11.20 contributed.

T.W. HOLMAN, Sec'y.

Comrade A.W. Harlan, now in his 93d year, attended all our re-unions up to 1899. He writes and sends greetings, and says, "Tell the boys I would like to meet them again but I am an old man and better off at home." many others have written sending greetings and expressing a hope of attending our re-unions at some future time. For want of space we are unable to give them, but as we comtemplate printing our proceedings in pamphlet form each year inthe future, we will be able to give letters in full and we hope every absent comrade will write. If you cannot answer roll call in person let us hear from you by letter.
