This Month's Quote - Free Death Notices, 1910 - Abbotsford Post

Abbotsford Post, 3 June 1910, British Columbia, Canada, p. 2

We do not charge for publishing births, because we like to see parents happy; we don't charge for publishing weddings...; we publish the notices of death free of charge because when we die we want our friends far and near to know that such a fair fellow has departed this life, and we don't expect we shall ever leave enough to have such notice paid for - unless we make it in the newspaper business.
