Chapter, and also in each one member of the National Society who can be commissioned as Chapter Regent, therefore, we hope to announce two more Chapters in next report.
There are two Chapters of young people, the Mary Lamphier, of Tacoma, and Thomas Tickering, of Seattle, who are studying the history of our patriots. Reports from the Regents are sent to the proper authorities in Washington, District of Columbia.
Mary Ball Chapter, in Tacoma, has contributed during the year past $138.00 to the War fund, and now has on hand $82.oo to be expended in the erection of a drinking fountain in our public park in memory of Mrs. Narcissa Whitman, who was the first teacher in our State and the only historic woman. She and her husband, Dr. Marcus Whitman, who was both physician and missionary, were massacred by the Indians at Walla Walla in 1847.
Since the organization of the Rainier Chapter in Seattle, it has contributed money to the following named objects: It influenced the school children to take up penny collections, which amounted to $50.00 for the Francis Scott Key monument fund. The Chapter added $15.00, which made the sum $65.00. To the Martha Washington fund, $5.00; to the Cuban Hospital fund, $5.00; to the Continental Hall fund, $10.00; to the United States Ship, “Olympia,” $5.00; to the Whitman Monument fund, $10.00.
At all the regular meetings of the Chapter members, the study of American history has been continued. At the social meetings the Sons have been invited, and the gain has been mutual. The December meeting of the Mary Ball Chapter, took the form of an English Christmas celebration, as described by Washington Irving. The peculiar trailing moss of the Coast lent itself very kindly to the mural adornment in connection with holly and ribbons red, white and blue, and par excellence “Old Glory.” The quaint costumes of the Sons and Daughters, representing the styles of the times that tried men's souls, fitted well with the scene in the hall where burned the Yule log, while stories were told and jollity held sway. The stately minuet was danced by eight chosen Sons and Daughters; then all partook of a repast where cake and wassail were bountifully dispensed.
Interest has been aroused and membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution has become valuable and desirable. Women from adjoining towns and villages have been received as members and thus our Chapters all enlarged and our influence extended. We are assured by the increasing interest manifested by the public in our Society that its formation was a wise and patriotic movement. We know that our greatgrandparents builded better than they knew, for they put here
