Editor’s Note Book

     THE NATIONAL SOCIETY of the Daughters of the American Revolution at the first meeting of the year, October 2, 1901, passed resolutions paying beautiful tribute to the memory of our noble president, William McKinley.
     They also recommended that the Daughters of the American Revolution wear a badge of black with, or without the insignia. These resolutions were given to the members through the associated press, and throughout the length and breadth of the land the Daughters responded by wearing this symbol of their deep sorrow and heartfelt veneration.


     AS THE various chapters begin their meetings of the year there is seen a determination to do more efficient work than ever before in the line of good citizenship. The resolutions of regret that come from different sections deploring the death of our president are united with resolutions to help in saving our beloved land from anarchy. The following chapters have sent such expressions to the AMERICAN MONTHLY MAGAZINE since the last issue:
     Piedmont Continental Chapter, Atlanta, Mrs. William Yeandle, regent.
     Buffalo Chapter, Buffalo, Mrs. John Miller Horton, regent.
     South Carolina State Conference.
     Ohio State Conference.
     Gouveneur Morris Chapter, Gouveneur, New York.
     Mercy Warren Chapter, Springfield, Massachusetts.
     Sabra Trumbull Chapter, Rockville, Connecticut.
