Between thirteenth and fourteenth streets almost in front of Epiphany Church i met n Small squad of cavalry accompanied by a few military officers and civilians on foot the band was proceeding quietly and with in evident desire to avoid Public notice. They were escorting the president s body to the White House. There is one other memory of that time of sorrow which i retain vividly. On the morning the president s body began the journey to Springfield it was warm Bright and altogether a Day Best suited to rejoicing yet All Washington had come Down town to see the funeral procession. Processions,1 normally Are stretched out but this one was made As compact As possible. In the front went a detachment of cavalry wedge shaped.
