1895 Excerpt: ... I am, so far from the centre of population, it
becomes a very difficult matter to attend the class reunions; but I
want to assure you that, though absent physically, I am in spirit
with them." WILLIAM HENRY McKENDRY. Nov. 18, 1895, writes from
Chicago: --"Your request of October 1 for a brief sketch of myself
for the Class Report was duly received, but in a busy moment was
pigeon-holed; and there remained until recalled to mind by a
'second summons, ' with an R. S. V. P. attached. I am sorry to have
troubled you; but I presume that there are others, and that you are
used to it. "Enjoying, as I thoroughly do, the reading of the Class
Report, I appreciate the obligation to each member of '82 to help
make it interesting; but, personally, I must ask indulgence, since
my daily life is so very commonplace that there is nothing of
interest to tell. "I am still with Palmer, Fuller & Co.,
manufacturers of sash, doors, and blinds, etc., located at West 22d
Street and Union, this city, and can be found there during eleven
months in the year. The month of February I spend in Florida, on
the Indian River, where I can hunt and fish to my heart's content,
and put myself in shape for another year's work. This is an annual
custom with me, and constitutes the only break in my monotonous
business life. "I am a member of several Chicago clubs, including,
of course, the Harvard Club. I have not married, and I can't say
that there are prospects; but perhaps I may be able to give a
better account of myself on this score in some future report. "From
what little I have to say, it may perhaps be inferred that it is
pretty slow with me, and so it is; but, if an '82 man comes this
way and has time to hunt me up, I think I can make it interesting
