Expressions from the Breaved

Card of Thanks
Words fail to express our deep appreciation and heartfelt thanks for the wonderful spirit of brotherly love and human kindness manifested during the disaster, when almost an even hundred our our beloved brothers were ruthlessly slain in the terrible mine disaster at No. 1 mine, Frontier, the morning of August 14.  Never shall any of us fortunate enough to escape the explosion forget the awful feeling that came over us when we realized our brother workers were imprisoned in a tomb that was only a short time before the place where we gained our livelihood.  Our sorrow was intense; bewildered were we at the time when the full truth dawned upon us, but thanks to our friends and fellow workers from adjacent camps, many lives were saved.

It would be impossible to name each individual to whom we owe a debt of gratitude, but let everyone who assisted us in any and every way during the five sorrowful days following the explosion, take this as a personal and direct expression of deepest appreciation and thanks from us of Local No. 2360, who yet remain to grieve over our loss.

To the brave rescuers, to the physicians, nurses, undertakers, those who furnished trucks, the peace officials, the ladies who looked to the needs of the workers on the fateful day, the lodges, the churches and their pastors, the business men of Kemmerer, the grave diggers, those who assisted in conducting the services for our dead, to the relief workers, to our parent Union, which appropriated funds that there might be no want among the stricken families; to our district officers; in fact, to everyone who assisted us in our hour of dire affliction and need we extend our heartfelt thanks.

"When musing on companions gone, We doubly feel ourselves alone."

To Our Friends
We, the sister and the brothers of Frank Eynon, who was killed in the mine explosion at Frontier, Wyo., August 14, wish to extend our thanks to the many friends of his family for their acts of kindness and words of sympathy in the hours of their bereavement and also wish to exonerate all those who at the same time made the supreme sacrifice with their lives, despite the findings of a coroner's jury to the contrary, notwithstanding, fully realizing they were all victims of a cruel social order, whereby that when vast fortunes are acquired from any given industry it is necessary that the workers in that industry shall pay the price of such fortunes  in sweat or blood.

Unfortunately our brother and his 98 comrades, in this instance, through their economic necessity were called upon to pay both which thousands of our comrades have done before and will continue to do until we all awake to a realization of our economic status as workers.
