“We Are Very Happy,” Says Mrs. McKinley

     Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 9.—“We trust in God, and believe Mr. McKinley is going to recover speedily. I know that he has the best medical attendance that can be obtained, and I am perfectly satisfied that these doctors are handling the case splendidly. It is a great pleasure to know the deep interest and sympathy felt by the American people. The case is progressing so favorably that we are very happy.”
     Mrs. McKinley, the wife of the President, said this to-day at the Milburn house just after the 4 o’clock bulletin of the physicians was issued. This bulletin was the strongest and most favorable that has been put forward by the physicians since the President was shot on Friday afternoon. The seventy-two hours which were the limit they had fixed for the development of peritonitis had almost expired, and their confidence has wonderfully encouraged the sweet-faced wife of the President.
