Dear Mrs Walsh
We have all been very much shocked at the news of Mr Armstron's death in such a tragic way, I [word] to express my sympathy but I [word record that all words are vain to give comfort. At the meeting of the Historical Society of which Mr Arm-strong was a valued member a motion was passed to send a letter expressing our sorrow and our sympathy with
the family which we doubt you will receive from the Secretary. I had a pret card from your father a short time ago which conveyed his good wishes and told of the flowers he seen on St. Augustine. I thought pf it was very kind and thoughtful of him to remember me. We all remember what a good address he gave us at the picnic at Queenston of the Historical Society, two years ago. Though I can not allay your grief I must be gratifying to you to
know that your father was appreciated by so many societies, by so may individ-uals both at home and abroad, who witness this fine, honorable character to his kindness and worth in so many ways. Not all people have such a heritage left them, I pray that you may be supported in this hour of trial by our Heavenly Father who can and will give comfort to the mourners.
your sympathetic friend
