...had been so sure of death...

The Ft. Dodge Daily Chronicle reported:

"Strange presentiments and forebodings of the Eastland Disaster were repeated in the silences about the biers in Cicero, Hawthorne, and Morton Park yesterday. One unheeded warning to a young married couple particularly was on every one's lips. This was so uncanny a firsthand investigation was made to find just how plainly the fates had spoken. The young couple had been so sure of death they had made their wills before going aboard the Eastland." Full story.
