A GREAT SOUL has passed to the Angel
And what a Great Soul was William
McKinley! Here on the Earth Plane he was an ideal American citizen,
an ideal ruler, a Christian Gentleman—a God-loving soul.
His last utterances clearly show what
a pure and lofty soul was this.

This last utterance marked the calm,
beautiful way of a Great Soul passing on to its God, and it has
thrilled millions of souls with love and reverence for the Great

to live in our hearts and souls, and the grave has only robbed us
of the body.
God’s way is always the right way.
