At a regular meeting of U. S. Grant Post the following preamble and resolutions were adopted:

WHEREAS--it has pleased the Great Commander to remove from us two respected Comrades, William C. Holman, and Cornelius Kellogg, And

WHEREAS--It is fitting and just that the Post should properly recognize the estimation in which they were held by the Comrades of the Post--THEREFORE:

RESOLVED--That while we bow in humble submission to the mandates of a loving Father, we nevertheless mourn for our beloved Comrades who have been taken from us.

RESOLVED--That in the death of these Comrades we lament the loss of two of our most devoted members, and whose upright lives might well be patterned by all.

RESOLVED--That the heartfelt sympathy of the Comrades of the Post be extended to the members of their families in their deep affliction.

RESOLVED--That a copy of these Resolutions be transmitted to the families of the deceased Comrades, that they also be entered upon the records, and a copy furnished for publication in our local paper.
