The Buffalo Undertaker Explains

     CANTON, Ohio, Sept. 18.—Among those at the Court House to-day, while the body of the late President lay in state, was the Buffalo undertaker who embalmed the body and came on here to transfer his duties to the local undertaker. He had received a dispatch from his business assistant at Buffalo, saying that some comment was being made concerning the haste with which the casket was closed, owing to the condition of the embalming. He stated, however, that the condition of the body after the autopsy made it impossible to properly perform the usual offices of embalming, and he asked, in justice to himself and his assistants, that this fact be stated on his authority.
