Sir-I wish to tender through you to the Honorable Senate of the State which my husband so dearly loved, my grateful thanks for the resolutions offered in remembrance of him and so beautifully engrossed and kindly sent to me. My seeming negleot in acknowledging has been only from the fact of illness and utter prostration from the fearful blow which robbed me of my loved one and my all. The words uttered by his good friends have done much to help me bear the terrible burden so suddenly and unexpectedly put upon me. With many thanks and gratefulness,

I remain most truly,

MRS. MARK S. BREWER.
