Clark County Clipper, November 9, 1905
Card of Thanks.
Being so far recovered from the recent long and hard siege of fever as to be
able to be at my desk part of the time, I want to now thank Dr. Taylor for his
skill and careful attention; I want to thank Dublin Sughrue who cared for me
thru the most critical period; I want to thank my sister, Mrs. Mitchell, for a
sister's care, and the many friends who made anxious inquiry when not allowed in
the sick room, and the many more who made inquiry by mail and otherwise, and
those who so kindly assisted John Walden with the paper, and the many friends
who have so heartily expressed their gladness of my recovery since I have been
able to be up, I want to thank them all, for many of these valued favors cannot
be paid for in cash. And I do not want to forget to thank those ladies for the
sweet flowers. I am so thankful that they died keep them to put on my coffin.
As it was, they were a delight when if placed on my coffin they would be of
little use. Let us give the flowers to the living.
H. C. Mayse.
