I will only give the result: The dining table was pushed into the bay and the curtain opened to let a ray of sunlight shine across the masses of flowers - 40 different lots I should think - all his friends - the Alembic
the Humdrums, the First Graft
, the trustees of the Universalist Church
and people from, New York, Syracuse, even Chicago. Great masses of roses, pink and white, Carnation, Violets (loads) Narcissus, red roses, jars full. Clustered about the casket (which was veiled in white lace) a huge dark green wreath with violets and white roses (from Fred) at the foot - standing against it. On the foot a lovely primrose wreath from Mrs. Alling,
and then a big one of pink roses and lillies of the valley by Mrs. Watson,
and then one of red carnations veiled in maiden hair fern from Harry. Only a few roses and some violets in the other room. Jenny
opened the door, Mrs. Hoyt spoke to each one and Fred and I were up in the nursery with Claude and Henry most of the time. Only invited people (30 or 40) came and sat about without being in rooms. There was a small are but cheerful fire in the grate. In the dining room were, Mother, Mrs. Wilkinson, Rebecca Blackwood
