DEATH OF ZACHARIAH CHANDLER

 

November 1, 1879

Washington D.C.

 

The sad intelligence of the death of Zachariah Chandler, late Secretary of the Interior, and during so many years a Senator from the State of Michigan, has been communicated to the Government and to the country; and in proper respect to his memory I hereby order that the several Executive Departments be closed to public business, and their flags and those of their dependencies throughout the country be displayed at half-mast on the day of his funeral.

 

R.B. HAYES.
