    The death of George T. Daniels, following so soon after that of Capt. R. O.

The tendency to forget the losses and sufferings which the soldiers of the civil war endured should be overcome and the veterans of the Grand Army should receive the cordial co-operation of all patriotic citizens in their annual tribute to those who died that the country might live, whether death came instantly on the battle field, or their lives were prolonged through several decades of suffering.
