Notes and Remarks [excerpt]

     The last words of President McKinley were these: “God’s will be done—not ours.” Immediately after uttering them he lapsed into unconsciousness. It is noteworthy also that this saying was given out for publication by the President’s secretary. These “last words” will be remembered when all else that our late chief executive said has been forgotten.
