My Dear Mr. and Mrs. Yeargin:?
I cannot forbear adding just a word to
the many that 1 know aro now pouring
in upon you regarding the awful calam
ity that has befallen your daughter.
1 know that a letter from mo cannot
bring much, if any, comfort to you at
such a time as this: but It may, later
on at least, afford you somo little satis
faction to know in how many hearts
your daughter had won a place here
among us. Many eyes in Ithaca aro
weentng with you and the heart of tho
whole university goes out in sympathy
with you. Vour daughter was one of
my brightest and most interesting stu
dents. There is no ono in ull of my
classes whoso faco I should miss more
than I shall hers. I havo not the heart
to meet the class to-morrow In which
she was always In her placo in tho fore
most row. 1 shall dismiss the class in
her memory and as I cross her name
from my roll book I do so with full as
surance that the Influence of her life
and her character will still remain with
us though her face bo gone. With
heartfelt sypathv, 1 am most sincerely
yours, . H. E. Elmer. '

over this great University. The sky Is
