Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland [excerpt]



     The PRESIDENT said that since the last meeting of the Council President McKinley had been assassinated. The event was one of which, he thought, they should take cognisance, and he there moved the following resolution:—

     That the Council at this their first meeting since the deeply lamented death of the late President McKinley, of the United States of America, desire to place on record their sincere sympathy with the Government and people of the United States, and their horror at the dastardly crime, which has caused profound sorrow not alone in the United States, but also throughout the whole British Empire.

     The motion was unanimously passed, and it was ordered that a letter of condolence should be transmitted through the American Consul.
