[Wilford Woodruff]

{Omens} In the fall of 1840 the great chandelier in the representatives Hall in washington weighing about 6,000 lbs, fell with a tremendious crash & broke into a thousand atoms. About the same time the female figure godess of liberty on the east side of the capitol lost her hand that held the balances. It broke of itself just below the elbow & it fell. April 4th 1841 President Harrison Died in one month after taking the chair.
