At a meeting of the Richmond Boys, held for the purpose of passing a tribute of respect to the memory 
of deceased fellow-soldiers, Capt. O. H. Dockery was called to the Chair, and on motion a committee 
consisting of Lieut. S. M. Ingram, D. G. McRae, D. R. McInnis, A. W. Dockery and Jno. S. Sedberry were 
appointed to draft appropriate resolutions expressive of our feelings.

Whereas, it has pleased the great Architect of the universe to take from our midst our fellow-soldiers 
George Kelly, (who died before we left home,) John Crouch and Eben N. Kelly;  therefore be it

Resolved, That in the death of our esteemed comrades and fellow-soldiers, we have sustained an irreparable 
loss, which none can appreciate, but those who knew the virtues and traits that fitted them for the noble 
cause in which they had embarked

Resolved, that a copy of these proceeding be sent to the families of the deceased, and to the Fayetteville 
Observer, for publication with a request that the Presbyterian, Raleigh Standard and Wadesboro' Argus copy 
them. O. H. Dockery, Chm'n  D. G. McRae, Sec'y
