Death of Mrs. Wilkinson Call
Notice was received in Washington today of the death in New York of Mrs. Wilkinson Call, wife of the ex-senator from Florida. Mrs. Call was living in New York with her daughter, who is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Company. She had been subject to heart trouble and it is supposed that this was the cause of her death, though the message did not specifically state.

Three Women Who Are Prominent In Social Circles
Mrs. Call Has Passed Fourteen Seasons at the National Capital
[Copyright 1893 by American Press Association.]
The wife of Senator Call of Florida is a charming and cultured woman. She is of medium height, slender and graceful, has dark brown eyes, a profusion of wavy dark brown hair and a very sweet expression. Her voice is low and musical, with the soft tones of her native state, for which she was named. Carolina Simpkins [Simkins] came of good Revolutionary stock and is connected by blood or marriage with some of the best families in the south. One of her fatherís ancestors was General Elijah Clarke of Georgia and his sister [Margaret Eliza Simkins Pickens], the wife of the famous Governor Pickens of South Carolina. Mrs. Call is a prominent member of the Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution and a great social favorite.

She was a mere girl when she married Mr. Call and three years later came to Washington with him when he first took his place in the Senate. That was 14 years ago. During that time, she and the genial Senator have made many friends, who are glad to know that they will be here four winters more, if not longer.

The Washington home of Senator and Mrs. Call is on N Street, not far from the British Embassy, in a large, pleasant house, which is well furnished and very homelike. Their only child, Lucy Lee Call, is a tall pretty girl of about 16, still pursuing her studies. She possesses great musical talent, inherited from her mother and will be an acquisition to society when she comes out two or three years hence.
