Mrs. Ingersoll and Mrs. McKinley as Mourners
When old Bro. Bob Ingersoll died the Christians
expatiated upon the alleged excessive grief of Mrs. Ingerso[l]l, and said it
was no more than natural for a woman who had none of the consolations of religion.
Now, good Methodist Bro. McKinley has gone dead and the newspapers report that his C[h]ristian wife is likely to die from grief.
How is this thing, anyhow?
