Wilcoxwm Dairme' A dsoci&66& of disagreanent or one single iota of jealousy beten , from the days of '72 to this present hour; it is a history, the duplicate of which can hardly be found in that of any state. We have been actuated, mainly by the desire to put Wiseonin to the fronts to do what we could in a public way, and in a private way, to get into the minds of the farmers of the state, the things that were necessary to know in this line. Now, we haven't but a few years more to wbrk, we old men, and already the intimetions come to me that the end is not far away, but I feel, my friends, as though no brighter heritage could come to me, or any other man, than to have belonged to an association that has been steadfast, and loyal, and patriotic in upbuilding the agriculture of this state. What Wisconsin is to-day, is largely due to the organized efforts of the men who have composed this Association, and I bid you, and every other one connected with it, a hearty Godspeed, knowing that in these things, come largely the growth, and prosperity, and happiness of the people. In a few well chosen words, Mr. Hendy erpreised the grat- ification, of the people of Platteville, with the work done by the Association in its convention, and called for a standing vote as an expression of their thanks, which was given unanimously. President Hill: On behalf of the State Dairym's Amo- ciation, I thank you for this token of appreciation. I am sure I speak for all of those from abroad as well as for myself, when I say that we are proud and happy to have been with you, and it has done us good. We are going to take away with'us kindly thoughts of this city; we will go bac to our labor on the farm or in the office, with much that will be of help to us. A motion to adjourn will be in order. On motion duly seconded, the convention adjourned sine die. I I I 188
