Where she has placed this deathless crown
Let woman cast her roses down, 
And Love and Fame forever stand 
A guard of honor, hand in hand, 
Around these graves where heroes lie 
Who fought for right, nor feared to die.

3 Reading of selected poems, Rev. Geo. L. Leyburn, D.D.

4 Music by the Choir, "Auld Lang Syne."

AULD LANG SYNE.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind; 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o'lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my friends, 
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, 
For auld lang syne.

And here's a hand, my trusty friend,
And gie's a hand o' thine,
And we'll tak' a right geld willie-waught
For auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my friends, 
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, 
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint stoup,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld, for auld lang syne!

5 Reading letters from Gen'l. J. B. Gordon and Adjt. Gen. G. Mooreman by Matt M. Manly, C.V., New Bern Camp No. 1162.
