[Apostle Rudger Clawson]
Salt Lake City. Cloudy and cool. I spent the day in Brigham City, going in the morning and returning in the evening. I attended to some matters of business while there. Pres. Chas. Kelly is suffering with an attack of his kidneys and is quite sick.
Upon returning home I was shocked to hear of the sudden death of Brother Karl G. Maeser, who passed away during the morning with heart trouble. Brother Maeser has been a very active and faithful man in the church. Under the direction of President Brigham Young, he built up the Brigham Young Academy of Provo and has done a great work as general supt. of Church Schools, asst. supt. of Religion Classes, and general asst. supt. of the Sunday Schools throughout the church. He will be greatly missed.
