American Pharmaceutical Association [excerpt]

     The association was called to order at 10 a. m., Thursday, September 19, to receive the report of the committee to draft resolutions upon the death of the President of the United States.
     At request of the chair, Dr. C. B. Lowe, of Philadelphia, read the following resolutions prepared by the committee:

     Resolved, By the American Pharmaceutical Association, in annual session assembled, that its proceedings are hereby suspended and deferred until after the conclusion of this day of grief and prayer; that we may unite with the whole people in humble submission, reverently repeating the last words uttered by him who so resignedly and lovingly gave up his life in the [316][317] faithful service of our country and of all its inhabitants: “It is God’s way; His will be done, not ours.” Be it also
     Resolved, That we tender our heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. McKinley, who, during the life of her husband, was the object of his most tender regard and care, and that while we mourn with her we cannot forget that our late President still lives, that he has been but translated to a higher sphere. Be it further
     Resolved, That as loyal and law-abiding citizens of this great republic of the United States of America, we hereby renew our allegiance to the Government and pledge our earnest endeavor to repress and stamp out both anarchy and anarchical sentiment so that no dark shadow may ever in this way fall upon our country again.

     The resolution was adopted by a unanimous rising vote. Upon motion, the association then adjourned.
