Second Quarterly (Continued from Page One.) of the people of the South and those of Italy, touching upon the most important of these aims and hopes of the Italian people as regards their relationship to the American people and stating lastly that the italian people do not want merely our money, our military aid, our trade, but above all else they do want our sympathetic understanding of their part in the world war and an expression from us of our sympathy for and understanding of the Italian people.
A WORD ABOUT ORGANIZATION The Commission is extremely anxious that the county and city commissions should organize as speedily as possible. It is not unaware of the difficulties in the way: so many people take summer vacations and so many others very properly wish to lighten their burdens during the heated season and it is not always possible to get the best results from summer activities; and yet, organizations can be effected, some work can be accomplished and a considerable amount of time may be saved which, otherwise, would later have to be expended in the mere routine of organization. It is the purpose of the Commission, hereafter, to print on the reverse side of its News Letter, a complete list of Commissioners, Associate Commissioners, County and City Commissioners, Contributing Members and Collaborators. And it purposes so doing for two reasons: Primarily, it wishes the people of Virginia to know just who are responsible for each particular phase of the work in hand, who are responsible for the general work of the State, who are responsible for the work in each section, who are responsible for each topic, whether local or state-wide, and who will contribute special articles for the History. There is an additional reason for this publicity. The members of the Commission fully appreciate their own responsibilities; they know that the success or failure of the finished history will be credited or charged to them; but they, also, know that they cannot succeed, they cannot give full credit to each section of the State, unless the local commissioners discharge adequately the duties devolving upon them, so, this list is printed to let the people of the State know where the ultimate credit may lie for the history as condign with the achievement to be recorded. Now it must, in all fairness, be said that the local commissioners are helpless or, if not helpless without their collaborators, they certainly are extremely dependent upon them. There is no topical arrangement in which the local collaborator does not play an important part. Some of the topics or sections depend absolutely upon local collaboration. Some are less dependent but local help cannot be ignored by any. Each collaborator should receive regularly a copy of this News Letter. He or she should know what other collaborators are doing. In another column is a brief statement concerning a report of the women's activities in the city of Richmond. With a few words a great work is dismissed. The preparation and collection of these reports have occupied many women for many months, but the effort is well worth while since each of these papers will forever form a part [illegible] and future Virginians may point with [reasonable?] pride to the efforts of their ancestresses during the great World War. From every city and county in the State similar reports will come. Few, if any, will be so voluminous; few, if any, will cover such a wide range of subjects, but there is not a political sub-division of Virginia which has not a worthy war record to perpetuate, and, just as it will be greatly to the credit of the local collaborators and commissioners if these reports are accurate and compete, so will it be to their discredit if they do not accomplish the work entrusted to them and meet the expectations of those who have selected them for this work fully realized to be supremely important.
PLANS FOR THE THIRD QUARTERLY MEETING OCTOBER 10, 1919 Two plans of special interest are being contemplated by the Executive Committee with reference to the third quarterly meeting, which is scheduled for Friday evening, the 10th of October. This meeting will fall within fair week, when there will be many visitors to Richmond, and it is hoped that a large number of local members will attend the meeting at this time. The Jackson Memorial Association will unveil its monument to the immortal Jackson Saturday, October 11, and every member of that association will be invited as a guest of honor to the quarterly meeting of the Commission on the preceding night. This quarterly meeting, as usual, will be held in the hall of the House of Delegates and a program of special interest is in preparation. A plan of even broader scope is being considered for Sunday, October 12th. This is a most appropriate Confederate Memorial Day, being the anniversary of the death of General Lee. The History Commission proposes to have a large observance of this anniversary as a Memorial Day, not only for the Confederacy, but for the Virginia soldiers who fell in the great war. This plan for a Memorial Day originated with the Jackson Memorial Association, but for Richmond only, and the purpose of the Commission is to co-operate with the Jackson Memorial Association in extending the observance of the Memorial Day to include the whole State and also to include a tribute to the Virginia soldiers of the great war. By this plan, in every city and hamlet of Virginia, in every church of every denomination, simple and appropriate memorial services will be observed, and it is believed that the heart of the State will respond to such a suggestion.
