GENTLEMEN -- We have the honor to herewith submit, as the committee named therein, a report of our proceedings in carrying out the provisions of the following act of the Twenty-fourth General Assembly of Iowa, to-wit:
"Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa:

That the adjutant-general and the curator of historical collections, with the advice and consent of the executive council, shall cause the colors, standards and battleflags borne by Iowa regiments and batteries during the war of the rebellion to be placed in hermetically sealed glass cases, in such manner as to display them to the best advantage, and to preserve them as far as possible from all injury thereto, and place them in appropriate locations in the corridors of the capitol; so much of said corridors as may be necessary is hereby appropriated for the purpose.
"SEC. 2. The sum of three thousand dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary, is hereby appropriated out of any fund in the state treasury not otherwise appropriated, for said purpose, and that all accounts for the same shall be audited by the executive council."
