Mr. Husk asks in a letter.  'Just fifty years ago tonight, February 10 1899, a schoolmate of mine passed away.  A few minutes before he died, he asked me to select his burial outfit.  Granting his wish, I chose to walk nine miles to West Union, starting at 7 o'clock.  When I left the house, the thermometer reading was thirty-eight degrees below zero, and when I arrived at West Union about the middle of the night, it was forty-two degrees below zero.'  Mr. Husk recalls that on that particular errand, he did not stop to rest!  He also says that with the help of a friend, he opened a grave for his schoolmate at the Powell graveyard on Buckeye, the mercury at the time sagging to thirty-eight below zero."[515]
