(panel 2)
The President fully realized that his hour
had come - and his mind turned to his maker
he whispered feebly "Nearer my God to Thee"
The words of the hymn
always dear to his heart
then as the final summons came
he faintly murmured: "Goodbye all, Goodbye
it is God's way - his will be done
not ours."
(panel 3)
On the afternoon of October Fifth
Nineteen Hundred and One - Anno Domini
twenty six thousand people
of Toledo and Lucas County
whose names are preserved within this monument
voluntarily contributed
to the fund for its construction
(panel 4)
He made the country better and greater
His career shows the possibilities
of American citizenship
For all time and for all peoples
his name will stand for the sanctity
of the individual - the home -
the



nation
