Diary of Francis Burton Harrison

February 13, 1936

Evening papers carry an account of the suicide of my old friend Manuel Earnshaw in his family mausoleum at the Cementerio del Norte. This is the second suicide in our old Tiro al Blanco group–the first was Antonio Roxas. Poor Manuel with whom I had talked several times lately, was in the depths of depression from loss of all his money &c. He was born in 1862; thus was 74 years old.
