The following letter was received
by the father of LleuJ. William Ken-
I nedy, relative to the death of his son
, in France:
Verneull, Nievre. France,
! February 26. 1919.
: ilr. Allen Joseph Kennedy,
ilTl Nassau Avenue,
Brooklyn, N. Y.
ily dear Mr. Kennedy:
It is with regret and the deepest
sympathy that I write you at this
time, substantiating the cablegram
which you have already received, no
tifying you of the death of your son.
Lieut. William F. Kennedy. While
I know that no words of mine can
help a great deal at this time, nev
ertheless, I wish to tell you that his
company and his entire unit unite
with me in expressing to you our
deepest sympathy.
Feeling: that a more detailed ac
count of his brief sickness and bur
ial may be of some consolation to
you. I gladly give all the information
1" ossible.
Your son was stricken, with bron
chial pneumonia and was taken to
the camp hospital, where the best
medical care and attention was giv
en him. All that science and medi
cal attention could do was done for
him, but he passed away at 2:10 p.
m on the morning of February 24,
We laid him to rest in the Amerl-
1 can cemetery, Xo. 552, located near
A'erneuil, Nieuvre, France, Tuesday
morning. February 25, 1919, with all
the honor and ceremony due a tru-
American soldier who has given hl3
life for his country. His grave is
located in Row 3, Grave 'o. 22.
Your son was a good, true, loya'
soldier. His willingness to heed in-
i struction and obey commands won
for him the highest respect of his
officers, and his kind, jovial spirit se
cured for him the love and fellowship
of all the men of his company. He
was a true friend and a most agree
able companion. Our love went out
to him, and our sympathy goes to
you at this time. And, while there
is an empty place in your home and
in your life, yet there should be, and
there no doubt is, that note of pride
that his was a life well spent, given
in the greatest cause and for the
greatest principles that the world has
ever knowr We feel, and you
should feel, that your son died just
as much a hero for these principles
as had he fallen on the bloodstained
battlefield. A life given for hi
country, for humanity and his God
cannot and will not be soon forgot
ten. There can always tie that comfort,
which is the greatest comfort of all,
that your son lived a. life worth living
aridi pave It for the greatest cause,
the cause of democracy, civilization
and Christianity, and. while we can
not understand the mysterious work
ings of that Unseen Hand, neverthe
less our faith at all times should bo
such that we can truly say, "Thou
knewest best, Thy will tie done."
Jesus, while our hearts are Weeding
O'er the spoils that death hath won
We would at this solemn meeting
Calmly say, "Thy will ibe done."
By thy hand the boon was given.
Thou hast taken 'hut tmne own;
Lord of earth and ioH1 of heaven.
Evermore "Thy will be done."
May the -blessings and. the comfort
of the Master rest with you at this
time and continue to abide with you
always. With deepest sympathy. T
ISincerely youra,
Unit Chaplain.

Birthday of A. Conan Doyle.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the crea
tor of Sherlock Holmes, will pass his
60th milestone today. The author was
born in Edinburgh, and was a ship's
surgeon on vessels running to Africa
and the Arctic regions before he be
gan his career as a novelist with "A
Study In Scarlet," published in 1887.
Sir Arthur has a never-failing supply
of good stories, his favorite dealing
with an experience he had with a
cabman in Paris. The cabby startled
the author by addressing him by
name, and when asked to explain,
he. said. "I read In the papers that
Sir Doyle was to arrive in Paris from
Nice, after stopping at Marseilles and
Lyons on the way. Now 1 see you
have your hair cut in the Marseilles
fashion, and there is Lyons mud
still on your boots. Therefore you
must be Sir Doyle." Sir ' Artlrar,
amazed at this exhibition of "sher
locking." persisted. "But was that all
the evidence you had?"., "Well, to
be honest, no," grinned the cabby, '
'! also saw your name on your lujr
