Grover Cleveland

 

Comments on the Dreadful News of the Third Presidential Murder.

     Princeton, N. J., Sept. 14—When interviewed by the Associated Press correspondent who delivered to him the first news of the president’s death, ex-President Grover Cleveland, at his home, made the following statement:
     “This is dreadful news, and the more cruel because it strikes down the confident and comforting expectation which all our people were encouraged to entertain that their president would be saved from death. In the afflictive gloom surrounding this third presidential murder within the memory of men not yet old, we can scarcely keep out of mind a feeling of stunning amazement that in free America, blessed with a government consecrated to popular welfare and contentment, the danger of assassination should ever compass the faithful discharge of the high duty. It is hard at such a time as this to calmly and patiently await the unfolding of the purpose of God.”
