Final Services Held
Burial of Corporation Counsel Duvall This Afternoon
Dr. Bristol's Tribute
District Bar Association Attends the Obsequies
Employee of the District Government Meet and Adopt Resolutions of Respect


The funeral of Andrew Brown Duvall, corporation counsel of the District of Columbia, who died at sea on Tuesday last while on his way home from a tour of England, was held this afternoon from the Metropolitan M.E. Church, John Marshall Place and C street northwest. The sermon was preached by Rev. Frank Bristol, pastor of the church, and interment was made in the Duvall lot in Congressional cemetery.
By the number of friends and acquaintances who attended the services to pay their final tribute of respect to the dead, it was possible to glean at least an inkling of the depth of the love inspired in life by the deceased legal representative of the local government. On every side tears were shed, and the number and beauty of floral offerings which lay upon and around the bier but served to add to the sadness which everywhere seemed to indicate the loss sustained by the death of a valued member of the community
