 Dec 5, 1917 -

     I wandered between the Baptist + Presbyterian Church wanting to hear the bells ring – I ran back to one to late – the other I arrived at in time to hear the last ponderous beats – the whole tower seemed to vibrate with a dull roar afterwards, dying slowly + with a growl –

Charles E. Burchfield
