Presidents Day Notes
Gen. John Brigham made the President look like a mighty small manwhen he walked beside him.
Some of the visitors wrung the Presidents hand and arm as if it were a mop handle.
The entire 166,660 visitors fell deeply in love with the kindly, sweet face of the first lady of the land.
Mr. McKinleys step was as brisk as the youngest of em.
An over-enthusiastic red-shirt-waisted young man was ejected from the Ecuador Building for attempting to butt in ahead of the President and Mr. Milburn.
President McKinley seems to have been a fine drawing card for the Exposition. Why not have him every day?
The Board of Women Managers added grace and dignity to the occasion. The handsomely-gowned women were the recipients of numerous flattering comment.
The spirit of mortal might well be proud, after a sight like that of yesterday.
Mr. McKinleys attentions to his beloved wife were the subject of extensive comment.
The United States has the handsomest chief officer of any nation on the globe.
The secret service men were hardly distinguishable in their tuxedos.
The smallest child didnt need to have the President pointed out to him.
The police arrangements were perfection.
Why didnt Col. Roosevelt remain over? Well, Teddy always did want to be the center of attraction.
If I were President, Id want to see the whole show, Midway and all, observed one prominent citizen.
The diplomatic representatives are an exceptional body of fine men.
The Presidents address as delivered differed somewhat from the advance copies given to the press. The latter didnt contain the free trade sentiments to which he gave utterance.
Theres an attendance record for the Railroad Day boomers to size up with a jealous eye.
