Resolutions on Varner-
The Daughters of the American Rev
olution typifies young America. With
their charter powers granted by the
national congress of America they rep
resent the blood and lineal descendents
of the early colonists. They stand to
day as sentinels over the graves of the
men and women who broke the chains
of British despotism and w rote a con
stitution of Independence. Patrick
Henry kindled the fires of the Revolu
tion, Jefferson wrote the Declaration
of Independence and Washington com
manded the Continental Army. In
deed, these were patriots. But their
lives are over and their last battles are
fought; their history is worthy to be
written on tablets of gold. The patri
otic descendents in the organization of
the I). A. R. will forever keep thechiv
alrous deeds of the men of Bunker Hill
and Yorktown memorable in the an
nals of history. Like the chosen wo
men of old when Cornelia pledged her
jewels, Dorcas plied her busy needle,
Marion sang her battle hymns, while
Mary watched and Martha served—the
Daughters of the American Revolution
will forever keep patriotic fires burning
in honor of America’s first patriots.
Therefore, be it resolved,
1. That the William Mclntosh chap
ter of the Daughters of the American
Revolution extend their thanks to
Miss Joe Varner for her magnificent
gift of the Mclntosh house and land as
set forth in her deed dated April 17, 1916.
2, That said gift shall be known as
the Varner-Mclntosh Memorial and
that Miss Joe Varner be made an honor
ary memberof this chapter, with all the
rights and powers granted to her under
the constitution and by-laws governing i

markable machine in our Accounting

makes it impossible for a mistake to
get past unnoticed. This accuracy
insurance alone is important enough
to you and to us to justify the use of
the machine method, but there are
