Moved that a letter of sympathy be sent to Stella Wilbur who is very ill. Mame Dewey offered to to take the message. Fannie Monroe then made a few remarks. Moved by Ann Owlett that a letter of sympathy be sent to Mr. Snavely and Florence Bosard. A terrible accident having taken away Mary Bosard Snavely a few weeks previous. Moved that a letter of sympathy be also sent to Martha Butler and Myra Campbell, and to the former Mrs. Flossie Campbell as another terrible accident had taken Ralph Campbell and his brother-in-law.1
The attendance was small being about forty-five.
1. It's strange that they sent letters to Ralph's aunts (Martha & Myra) and his mother (Flossie), but not to his Uncle Robert John Campbell or especially to Ralph's sister and the bereaved widow of Beecher Kelim, Rose (Campbell) Kelim [later Davis].
