The Adjutant General's account, with vouchers, approved by the Commission is on file in the office of the Auditor of Accounts.

In making the arrangements for the transportation and accommodation of the veterans at Gettysburg, the Adjutant General made two trips to Gettysburg, by direction of the Commission, in advance of the Celebration; once in company with Colonel H. W. Allen, Chairman of the Commission, and again alone.

The officers and men of the Vermont National Guard who accompanied the veterans to Gettysburg, were ordered to perform that duty by Governor Fletcher, and their pay and expenses were met from the general appropriation for the Militia, and no part of the same was paid from the Gettysburg Celebration appropriation.

I accepted the opportunity to perform this service for the veterans of Vermont with pleasure, and, while the work has taken a large amount of time and attention, I have been more than repaid by the consideration and appreciation which has been universally shown me by your committee and the veterans who participated in the great celebration.

Respectfully submitted,


The Adjutant General
