In closing I wish to thank President Lynch and Secretary Hays and Ex-Secretary Bramwood, who, on behalf of the board of trustees, have given prompt and courteous attention to all correspond

I also wish to express my appreciation of the co-operation of Resident Trustee McCaffery, who has given liberally of his time and attention when Home affairs demanded his consideration. Respectfully submitted,

We also desire to assure the delegates to the St. Joseph session and the membership in general that it has been our aim to fully carry out the terms of the trust reposed and to administer the affairs of the Home in such a manner would prove creditable to the International Typographical Union and beneficial to those enjoying the privileges of the institution.
