. New York, Oct. 17. Mrs. Jeffer
son Davis, widow of the President of
the Confederacy, who had been ill for
a week at the Hotel Majestic in this
city, died at 10:25 o'clock last night.
Death was due to pneumonia, in
duced by a severe cold which Mrs.
Davis contracted upon her return
from the Adirondacks, where she had
pent the summer months.
Although grave fears were felt
from the first, Mrs. Dafis' wonderful
vitality, which brought her safely
through a similar attack a year ago,
gave hope of ultimate recovery until
last night, when a decided change
for the worse was evident, and the
attending physicians announced that
the end was near. It was then be
lieved that Mrs. Davis could not sur
vive the night, but she rallied slight
ly during the early hours of yester
day. Shortly after 7 o'clock yester
day morning she had a similar spell
and the Rev. Nathan A. Slegle, restor
of St. Stephens' Protestant Episco
pal Church, was hurriedly summoned
to give religious comfort to the
patient in her last moments of con
sciousness. The clergyman remained
some time, and an hour later it was
announced that Mrs. Davis had
lapsed into a state of coma. The
period of unconsciousness continued
to the end.
At the bedside when death came
were Mrs. J. Addison Hayes of New
ark, N. J., the only surviving daugh
ter of Mrs. Davis; Jefferson Davis
Hayes, a grandson, who Is a student
at Princeton University; Mrs. Chat.
E. Batesmsn, a niece; Dr. and Mrs.
Gustav A. Webb, the latter a grand
daughter, and Dr. W. A. Wylle, who
with Dr. Webb cared for Mrs. Davis
throughout her illness.
Mrs. Davis has tor some years
made her home In this city, where
he had a wide circle of friends.
