Mary's funeral services were held today in this
house. About a hundred beautiful floral offerings. Dr. Young
conducted the services. Willis Howell played. The Empire says no
human shock in Juneau has ever been so great as the untimely passing of the
Florence Nightingale of the North.
Poor Karl was not equal to the funeral or going
to the cemetery, so our family were her mourners, though he whole town mourns
her. The little Baby is fine.
Allie and Ozzie were with us five hours last
night and Gladys M. came. Daddie expects to come home about the 23rd.
