Card of Thanks.
I desire to express my heartfelt
thanks and gratitude to my neigh-
bors,and especially to my friends of
the Western Hospital, for the faith
ful and untiring attention shown
my wife during her protracted ill
ness and great suffering.
The blessings of a gracious Prov
idence can only repay such noble,
generous-hearted people for their
many ministrations in acts of kind
ness to myself and wife in the
hours, days and weeks of our sore
aflliclion and deep distress. May
the highest heavenly blessings rest
upon them, for I feel that 1 am un
able to.compensate them in this life
for such unbounded kindness.
