[untitled]

     MRS. MCKINLEY’S FORTITUDE under all the trying circumstances of the President’s assassination was truly remarkable, in view of her frail health and the sheltered, tenderly guarded life she has led. It illustrates the characteristic strength and reticence of the Anglo-Saxon.

She sets a noble example of womanly dignity.
