Unforeseen delays and difficulties have prevented the completion of this statue within the time anticipated, and in consequence it has been determined to postpone the twenty-third reunion until next year, at such date as may be advised by the Local Executive Committee having charge of the erection of the statue, which date will be publicly announced to the members of the Society by its own proper officers.

By order of
GENERAL W. T. SHERMAN,
