The Caddo Star
April 11, 1876
A Grateful Remembrance
Mrs. S.A. Harlan wishes to tender her heart-felt gratitude to the people along the road and in Paul’s Valley, for the willingness and alacrity with which they responded to her every wish and want, while on her late mournful mission to White Bead Hill. And to Bro. Silas Rogers, under whose roof her sick and suffering husband breathed his last, she feels especially thankful for his kind and fraternal attentions and for the anxiety he manifested in trying to have his last, dying request complied with. To the physicians too, who watched over him to the last and exhausted their skill in trying to stay the relentless hand of death, she feels very grateful, and will ever hold them in kindly remembrance. And to the kind neighbors and sympathizing friends of Caddo, those who paid such marked respect to the remains of her loving husband and vied with each other in trying to soothe the pangs of her poor, bleeding heart, she acknowledges a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.
Mrs. Harlan would be pleased to mention the name of each and every one who so kindly befriended her in this the saddest hour of her life, but the lack of space precludes it. Of one thing though they may rest assured, they will never be forgotten.
