My dear Mrs Suckley,
A memorial service was held at the American Church in Paris yesterday for Henry and for James R. McConnell an American aviator who fell for France a few hours before Henry. The ceremony was befitting those whom it was commemorating. Bishop Brent made an address in which he spoke of the splendid role both had played as leaders, of the cause they had upheld, and what the memories of their lives would mean to others. All the Americans working for France who were here came to pay their tribute, and the large church was crowded,- especially with aviators and ambulance men their [sic] being nearly two hundred of them present. I feel that it may be of some comfort to you to know how important and impressive was this ceremony, attended by those who had worked in the same cause as Henry for the past two years, as a tribute to his memory.
Very sincerely yours
