A CARD OF THANKS.
I would thus publicly express my gratitude to the many, many friends who sym-
pathize with me in my affliction. The sympathy I feel more sincerely because of the practical form. From first to last I have been treated with the utmost kindness and consideration. It is very gratifying to be the recipient of so many marks of the esteem in which my husband was held. Every kindness has been gratefully noted, from those of the Town Board of Trustees, Railroad Officials, Masons and Woodmen, down to the humblest offices performed in the kitchen and sickroom. To the members of the Salem Evangelical Church I extend my thanks, also to the friends and neighbors who so kindly furnished teams and drivers from the house
to the cemetery. For the many written and printed condolences received, I return my hearty thanks.
