The building was crowded with a splendid and most intelligent audience, the occasion being the annual meeting of the association. The day was also the anniversary of the old Howitzers, and the asso- ciation of these veterans and the Howitzer Battery attended the meeting in a body and occupied seats in the pit.
The Blues, the First Regiment, Pickett and Lee camps, and last, but not least, the ladies were well represented delegations from the memorial associations occupying the boxes and the Howitzer Band was in attendance.
