Anna E. Griffith, Dept. Secretary

        I have the honor to submit, through you, to the twenty-first annual convention of the Department of Michigan, Woman’s Relief Corps, the report of the secretary of the legislative and annex committee of the Michigan Soldiers’ Home.

        When Mrs. Flagg, the chairman, notified me that I would act as secretary of this committee for the year just passed, I confess I felt not a little hesitancy about accepting, knowing, as I did, that the work would be entirely new to me; I feared my inability to satisfy the committee in that capacity. It has been a valuable school of instruction to me, and I have striven to do the work as Mrs. Flagg would have it done. If it had not been for her kindly assistance and advice I should not have succeeded as well as I have. I wish to express to her my sincere thanks for the honor she conferred upon me in selecting me for this important work.
