"It is not important whether Thornton Chase's resting-place is referred to as his grave or his shrine. We should not be rigid in such matters. Likewise it is not important whether the friends gather on the 30th or the 1st of the month.* The keeping of the anniversary is the important thing."
to Mr. Willard P. Hatch dated October 23, 1949:
Mr. Hatch explains that the "Star of the West" reports Thornton Chase as having died after sunset on September 30th, so the reference to the 30th and the 1st means the 30th of September or the 1st of October
