Some Journeys and Family Reunions
[excerpt]

     The following year was held in our beautiful temple in Chihuahua, appropriately decorated for the solemn occasion, a memorial service, in which the American Consul took a leading part, and which was attended by a great concourse of our countrymen, and by many prominent Mexicans as well who had received an invitation to accompany us, the same having been printed in their own language and, in accordance with the custom of the country, on a folded sheet of paper heavily bordered with the emblem of mourning. The announcement in English was as follows:—

In Memory of
President William McKinley

     A Ceremony expressive of respect for the distinguished dead, and of sympathy for the afflicted people of the United States, will be held in Trinity Church,

Sunday, September 15, at 4 P.M.

     All members of the American Colony and their friends are respectfully invited to be present.
