Editor’s Note Book [excerpt]

     Expressions of deep sorrow for the death of President McKinley and of loving sympathy with his bereaved wife have been received from many chapters. With these came resolutions showing deep detestation of the awful crime which has deprived our nation of its honored chief and a determination to continue more earnestly than ever the work made ready for our hands—the teaching of an enlightened patriotism. This is peculiarly the duty of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
