Unbound. One small leaf folded to make four pages. Printed on yellow paper. Slight age-toning on inside pages, near fine. Includes addresses, lyrics of songs to be sung (both fraternal and patriotic), and a silent tribute. Interesting artifact from the early days of the first African-American fraternity. It seems likely from context that the chapter making the pilgrimage was from Howard University. speakers included Rev. Beale Elliot, Pastor of the Sharon Baptist Church in Baltimore, Mrs. Leila Pendleton of the Frederick Douglass Memorial and Historical Association, Oscar C. Brown, of the Beta Chapter (Howard University), Professor George Wm. Cook of Howard, and Simeon S. Booker, General President of the Fraternity.
