1907. Excerpt: ... PART II. WORK OF THE CHAPTERS FROM OCTOBER
11,1905, TO OCTOBER 11, 1906. WORK OF THE CHAPTERS. The following
report of the chapter work throughout the states gives the keynote
to the patriotic interest that develops from year to year in this
organization. In some instances only a summary can be given, for it
would fill a space far beyond the capacity of one volume. The
chapter Avork added to the work of the national board of management
under the control of the continental congress, through its various
departments and national committee work, if carefully studied in
these reports will show the vast amount of work accomplished in
patriotic education, in the preservation of historic places, in
genealogical publications, the building of Memorial Continental
Hall--in short, in the preservation of the vital points of the
history of this Republic. The representation of the national
society is by chapters only, therefore all reports of work from
states must come from the chapters. There are no state
organizations. ALABAMA. Mrs. J. Morgan Smith, Rvgent. The sessions
of the eighth annual conference of Alabama Daughters of the
American Revolution, -held in Opelika December 6 and 7,1906, were
well attended, harmonious, and enthusiastic. Chapter reports
proved, beyond cavil, that "Here we rest" is not the motto of the
organization, as well as the soothing interpretation of the word
"Alabama." Many practical suggestions were offered along the usual
lines of work, all of which will be maintained throughout the
coming year, viz: The completion of Continental Hall, the
observance of patriotic anniversaries, search for Revolutionary
relics, etc.; but the keynote was, evidently, the promotion of
patriotic education in every legitimate manner. First on the list
