Excerpt from Journals of the Encampment Proceedings of the Department of Massachusetts: G. A. R. From 1881 to 1887 Inclusive At the Thirty-fourth Annual Encampment held at Boston in February, 1900, Department Commander John E. Gilman, in his address, said: "I suggest the consideration by this Encampment of the advisability of creating a similar committee to that of 1892, with authority to continue the publication of the early history of the Department, beginning with 1881, and including as many administrations as will make books of convenient size. Should this plan be adopted, I would further suggest as an economical measure that for the purpose of distribution to public libraries, four hundred extra copies of the reports of this and subsequent administrations be printed and retained at headquarters until a sufficient number accumulate to make another book, when practically the only expense would be the binding." The Committee on the Commander's Address reported the following which was adopted by the Encampment: - "That this Encampment authorize the printing of the Proceedings of the Department Encampment beginning with that of 1881 and continuing to that of 1899 inclusive, and insufficient numbers for distribution to every public library in the State, that the history and good work of our organization may be placed in a position and condition for permanent preservation. The printing of four hundred extra copies we most heartily endorse and we offer the following: - "Resolved, That the same committee as was appointed by resolution of Department Encampment in 1892, viz.: Past Department Commander George W. Creasey; Past Department Commander Austin S. Cushman; Past Department Commander John D. Billings; Comrade William M. Olin, Post 26; Comrade George V. Powers, Post 15, be such committee to carry out the provisions of this recommendation and to complete said history and cause the same to be printed." In compliance with the above instructions the committee have caused to be printed this volume embracing the administrations of 1881 to 1887 inclusive, which together with the volume entitled: "The Early History of the Department," furnishes a complete record of our Order from the organization of the provisional department in 1886 to and including the administration of Commander Nash in 1887.
