Created in only 5 days, this book for tributes was prepared for a large Cathedral Service, 
accompanied by four sets of additional loose pages, to permit five lines of guests to sign at once,
rather than one long line.  After the service, clergy, musicians, and latecomers, as well as the infirm who could not attend, we able to sign these loose pages which then were incorporated into the completed book, to establish the permanent record of messages of comfort, tribute, and sorrow.

"Blair House’s official guest books form a record of political change, advancement and evolution in the United States and around the world. They reflect the profound complexity of international politics and the ever-changing role of the United States on the world stage. At the same time, they are a reminder of the courtesies and traditions that are an indispensable part of events of state."
