Mrs. Burnett, while on a visit to her sister. Mrs. S. F. Darden, here December 16, was notified by the Navy that the young man had been killed in action, presumably in the Pearl Harbor attack by the Japanese on December 7. Her first intimation that the report was false came last Thursday, New Year’s Day, when she received a card from the young man, dated December 12, stating that he was well and that a letter would follow. The following day she re ceived a message from the Navy Department regretting the erroneous report, and Tuesday she received a letter from her son, dated in Hono lulu December 26tli. Young Jackson, who is well known here where he visited frequently, is believed to be stationed on a battleship in Hawaiian waters. Only 19 years old, he has been in the Navy a little over a year. Members of his family, other relatives and friends, after mourning his death for about 15 days, were naturally overjoyed when news came that the first report was erroneous. Mrs. Jackson had received many mes sages of condolence and sympathy, including a letter from former Sec retary of the Navy and Mrs. Josephus Daniels, and she wishes to pub licly express her sincere appreciation for the many kindnesses shown her during a very trying period.
