Two members of Isaac Davis Post, G.A.R. died last week. Comrades Jas. Wright of Concord Junction, and John Blood, of Acton Centre. The Post attended both funeral services, Comrade Wright’s being Saturday, and Comrade Blood’s Sunday afternoon. Truly the ranks are thinning and there is no recruiting for the G.A.R.
