Soon After the Clergyman Left Mrs.
Davis Became Unconscious and So
Remained Until the End-Pneu
monia Was Cause of Her Death.
New York, Oct. i.-Mrs. Jeffer
son Davis, widow of the president of
the Confederacy, who had been ill
for a week at the Hotel Majestic, in
this city, died at 10:25 o'clock Tues
Death was due to pneumonia in
duced by a severe cold which Mrs.
Davis' contraoted-- :upoan'.ber . rea.rp
from the Adirondacks, where she had
spent the summer months.
Although grave fears were felt from
the first, Mrs. Davis' wonderful vi
tality which brought her safely
through a similar attack a year ago,
gave hopes of ultimate recovery until
Monday night, when a decided change
for the worse was evident and the
attending physicians announced that
the end was near. It was then be
lieved that Mrs. Davis could not sur
vive the night, but she rallied slight
ly during the early hours of Tuesday.
Shortly after 7 o'clock in the morn
ing she had a similar spell, and Rev.
Nathan A. Seagle, rector of St.
Stephens Protestant Episcopal church,
was hurriedly' summoned to gi1e 'te
ligious comfort to the patient in her
last moments of consciousness. The
clergyman remained some time, and
an hour later it was announced that.
Mrs. Davis had lapsed into a state of
coma. The period of unconscious
ness continued to the end.
At the bedside when death came
were Mrs. J. Addison Hayes of New
ark, N. J., the only surviving daugh
ter of Mrs. Davis; Jefferson Davis
Hayes, a grandson, who is a student
at Princeton university; Mrs. Charles
E. I3ateson, a niece; Dr. and Mrs.
Gustav Webb, the later a grand
daughter, and Dr. Robert H. Wylie,
who with Dr. Webb, had cared for
Mrs. Davis thrthighout her illness.
J. Addison Hayes, husband of Mrs.
Davis, only living child, had been
summoned from Colorado Springs and
was hurrying across the continent,
when a message announcing Mrs. Da
vis' death intercepted him.
Mrs. Davis 'ha.s for some years
made her home in this city, where
she had a wide circle of friends.
Throughout her illness, solicitous in
quiries regarding her condition were
continually madie at her apartments.
Definite plans for the funeral had
not been made, but it is understood
that services will be held he re by her
pastor, andl it is definitely known that
-tie body 'will repose bes1ie that of the
lAte president of the ConfeJei'acy in
'At the Majestic hotel it was said
that the~ body would be taken to Rich
mnond, Va., on Thursday.
