Public tribute to the late President Garfield held at the Carson Opera House:
"Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again,
Let us, then be up and doing,
With a heart for every fate,
Still achieving, still pursuing.
Learn to labor and to wait."
