The following resolutions on the death of late [sic] President were introduced by Miss Sylveen Nye, seconded by Mrs. Morley, and adopted by the association.
     Whereas, our Father, in His infinite wisdom, has taken from us unto Himself our beloved President, the President of the United States of America, William McKinley, a President honored and respected by all nations, a President honored and trusted by all his people, regardless of their political faith, a man loved by and dear to all his acquaintances, a sincere, true and loving husband; and
     Whereas, the Buffalo Nurses’ Club realizes that in the loss of William McKinley the nurses of the United States of America and of the State of New York and city of Buffalo have lost a great, true, and good friend, a friend who not only gave his official support, but one willing to and who did use his own personal influence in behalf of the nurses as well as every good cause; and
     Whereas, the Buffalo Nurses’ Club feels a desire to express its deep and sincere sorrow for the untimely death of William McKinley; be it
     Resolved that the Buffalo Nurses’ Club hereby expresses its profound sorrow that our President, William McKinley, should be called from earth to his resting place in Heaven at this time; and be it further
     Resolved, That this resolution shall be placed upon and become a part of the records of the Buffalo Nurses’ Club.
