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
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 
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.
