Lewiston, Idaho, December 17, 1891
The sad intelligence of the death of Willie Davis flashed over the city Wednesday morning. He had been one of the victims of diptheria, but was fully recovered from its effects. He, however, contracted a heavy cold which settling on his lungs soon weakened him past recovery. He died at 11 o'clock, Tuesday night. It is so sad that one so bright, so winning and agreeable should be a victim of an early death. The sorrowing parents have the sympathy of the entire community.
The family of the undersigned takes this method to express their heartfelt gratitude to the kind friends who assisted them in their time of great sorrow, by their cheering counsel and delicate attentions. We trust and pray these friends and all others may be spared such anguish as ours and their lives be peaceful and happy.
P. M. Davis.
