The Review and Herald, Battle Creek, Mich., November 13, 1900. When Galveston is mentioned, the minds of the Review readers will instantly revert to the awful destruction brought upon our Texas coast by the great hurricane of September 8. . . . The storm was terrific here in Houston . . . was much harder east and south of here, seeming to center about Galveston. . . . Nine of our people perished in Galveston. Their names are as follows: Sister H.C. Travers and little boy, Sister B.A. Whitcomb and baby, Sister S. Loyd and two children, Sister M.V. Slatham, and Sister M. Marshal. We deeply mourn the loss of these dear sisters and these little lambs, but we hope to meet them again when the sea gives up her dead. . . . Felix Conway, 2117 Congress Ave., Houston, Tex.
