William McKinley (recovery); William McKinley (personal character).
Named persons
William McKinley.



     The continued improvement of the President is the source of the heartiest rejoicing. All symptoms now point to a speedy and complete recovery. The skill of the surgeons is seconded by the patientís own strong will and calm determination to live. While it is still too soon to speak with perfect confidence, the physicians are agreed that only unforeseen complications can prevent a happy issue. This is good news; the better because Mr. McKinley has in this great crisis of his career revealed yet more virtues which endear him to the popular heart. The private, personal excellences of public men are often thrown into the shade by the light of publicity and are not seen or appreciated. But in this case the man, not the President, was put to the test and all the world knows the patience of the illustrious sufferer, his magnanimity, his heroic calm. For him and his sorrowing wife the American people offer up their most fervent prayers.
