train shed in the North Station to-day when the coffins containing the
bodies of Frank D. Millet, the artist, and Richard P. [sic] White of Winchenden
[sic] and Boston were taken from the Halifax train.  The body of Mr. Millet
was removed to the chapel at Mount Auburn Cemetery, where funeral services
were held.

A large floral piece from President Taft occupied a prominent place on the
Millet coffin.  Representatives of the Boston Art Club and of the class of

associates of the artist attended the funeral.

The services were read by the Rev. Charles E. Park of Boston,  The body was
cremated, and the ashes will be taken to East Bridgewater, to be interred in
the family plot.
