    Excerpt from In Memoriam: William Holcomb Webster, of Connecticut, Late Chief Examiner of the United States Civil Service Commission, Washington, D. C

    As I recall it, Major webster, after Mr. Procter, was the first person I knew in the Commission, and it was by his introduction that I met most of you who are gathered here. I came to have a great regard for him personally, and, though sometimes we did not take the same view of affairs, it was always a satisfaction to have his carefully formed opinion, to which we all gave great weight. We sorrow at the separation from him whom we have knownso well, and we deeply sympathize with those to whom the bereavement comes still closer. He is not dead; he is just away, is a verse of James Whitcomb Riley's which comes with special meaning as we think of the hearty man, alert to so many varied interests, who a few hours ago was our associate. There is, too, something peculiarly comforting and peaceful in the thought that his last earthly act was to take the attitude in which he prayed, and to know that as he knelt his spirit returned to the God who gave it.
