Anxiety in London
All Classes Glad to Hear Good News from Buffalo.
London, Sept. 8.—Genuine relief pervades England
to-night over the encouraging reports regarding President McKinley’s condition
and the prospects of his recovery. Were King Edward lying wounded popular feeling
could scarcely be stronger or deeper. Prayers for the recovery of Mr. McKinley
were offered up in hundreds of British churches to-day, notably St. Paul, Westminster
Abbey and Canterbury Cathedral. At the Rev. F. B. Meyer’s church in London,
where there was a large attendance, including many Americans, the congregation
rose and passed a resolution of sympathy.
Hundreds of callers made incessant inquiries throughout the day at the United States embassy. Among them were Lord Pauncefote, Charles Spencer Francis, United States minister to Greece, who is en route to his post, and United States Senator Martin of Virginia.
