A clear beautiful day quite warm today the last rites to our beloved President were celebrated an [immense] procession the
services eminently grand and [imposing] but oh how sad 'tis to think that he who only a week ago I visited to that he is dead.
Died for this nation a martyr to his [Christlike] [illegible]. Was absent from the Hospital all day. Attending the procession.
[illegible] the [gloomily] of our [martyr] and one although he be dead yet still his soul walks and lives. Received letters
from my Betrothed. True unfailing love showing a noble spirit of sympathy for our great loss. Feel quite well.
