COLLINS work in Albany, he seemed hopelessly lost in his grief. ” Days passed before the devastating reality settled in upon him: Alice and Mittie were gone (Theodore Roosevelt Papers, Library of Congress, series 8, reel 430, February 18, 1884; Morison, Blum, and Chandler 1951–1954 1: 63; New York Times, February 17, 1884; New-York Tribune, February 17, 1884; Sewall 1919, 11–12).
