One of the first requests Colonel Roosevelt made after reaching Mercy hospital early on Tuesday was that his old friend and companion in arms, Very Rev. Edward J. Vattman of Wilmette, be summoned:

"I'm not much alarmed about my spiritual condition, " said Roosevelt with a laugh so characteristic of the man, "but I would like to see Vattman and talk to him just the same. I've known him for a long time. We were in the army together."
