Letter from Elder Cook

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Toxey, Alabama Nov. 21, 1924 Dear Bro. Baker: The long expected, yet sad news came today that you were to be released. I know you’ll be glad to get home to see the loved ones; but the parting here brings a sigh. We will miss you here in the mission field about as much as your loved ones missed you from home. It seems a cold world to reflect upon the past and think of the many friends we’ve met, become acquainted and even bosom friends and companions, then to part so suddenly and go to our different station in life; perhaps never to meet again. Then when we think of others who have never even had the privileges of going into the world and meeting up with the human race, we can feel thankful for the privilege of meeting up with such wonderful characters. Even though parting with the “Elders” make my heart ache; yet I thank God that I had the privilege of associating with them. I feel that in these few years of my life, I have met up with some of the choice spirits—Spirits who were perhaps foreordained to come forth in this dispensation and proclaim the Gospel to the nations of the earth. I feel that my life has been made better through the influence of you and my other companions. And my prayers are that I might continue to enjoy the peaceful influence of those with whom I am called to labor. Though we’re parting now, I hope it won’t be forever. If you’re ever over toward Huntington, I want you to make my home your home. As you go through Salt Lake, if you have time, I would like you to call upon my sister, Miss Anna Cook, 1127 Harrison Ave. She is stopping with my uncle, Mr. David H. Wood and would be very glad to see someone from Ala. I’ll tell them to look for you. If they are not filled-up, you might stay with them. (Charge to my account, if there be any--) Supper is ready so will bid you good-by and God be with you forever. Your Bro. In the Gospel, Elder Wm. G. Cook

Life timeline of William Gus Cook

William Gus Cook was born on 17 Sep 1901
William Gus Cook was 16 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
William Gus Cook was 19 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
William Gus Cook was 29 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
William Gus Cook was 39 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
William Gus Cook died on 2 Mar 1954 at the age of 52
