THE 38th IOWA Last day of the Reunion — A List of those Present.—An Enjoyable time.

The “boys" of the 38th Iowa closed their reunion on Thursday afternoon last. The morning session was devoted to business, such as election of officers, choosing the next place of holding the reunion, etc. New Hampton was agreed upon as the meeting place for next year, and the first Wednesday and Thursday in October as the days of holding same. Dr. A. Babcock, of New Hampton, was chosen commander of the association for the ensuing year, J. H. Parsons, senior vice commander, J. F. Dayton, junior vice commander, C. W. Sherman, quarter-master, and Win. Johnson, adjutant.

The following resolutions were also adopted:— Headquarters 38th Iowa Veteran Association. Decorah, Iowa, Oct. 4th, 1S94. Be it resolved by the members of said association here assembled, that we are under a lasting debt of gratitude and kindness to the people of Decorah, Iowa, for the interest they manifested in us and for their labors in making our reunion a most pleasant and profitable meeting. Resolved, further, that we extend to the officers of said association, and more especially to our adjutant and comrade, Pat McCusker our thanks for their labors in our behalf.

Resolved, that to the ladies of the Relief Corps of Decorah we will ever remember them for the kindly reception they gave us and for the bountiful repast which they provided for us and for their devotion to the comrades and their wives. May their lives be as the roses and at last inherit that loyal Diadem provided for the loyal, faithful and true. J. J. Berkey, A. Babcock, J, W. Rogers.

In the afternoon between the hours of 1:30 and 4 the veterans paid their respects to Mrs. D. H. Hughes, whose husband was their commander. During the reception remarks were made by George F. Harwood, of Tarkio, Mo., which caused tears to come to many eyes.

The “boys" all affirm that they had a royal good time, and the letter of comrade Jennings published in another column voices the sentiment that many of them personally expressed. Following we give a list of those present, We have failed however in recording the members of “Co. Q.” who reported, hut as it included a large number from Col. Hughes Post, it is hardly necessary for a full record:—
