THE LATE MRS GEORGE FREDERIC ALLEN.

This lady whose death occurred: on Saturday, the 10th instant, at the house of her ever-kind friends, Mr and Mrs Burnett, of Oneida, came out from England on board the Ganges, to be married to Mr Allen, in -1863. She was the daughter oi the late Rev. George Lowden Hanson, vicar of Great ' Butghstead, • Essex. She was born on August 61, 1840, at Felstcad, of which parish at that time Mr Hanson was vicar. Mr and Mrs Allen were married in October; 1863, at St. Matthew's, Auckland, by the Rev. David -Jjones, from the house of their friends, Mr and Mrs^Jos. A. Barber. Mr Allen returned with his bride to /Wanganui, at which he was at the time district sur~ veyctr; Mrs Allen was one of those many excellent women who "do' good by stealtn and .blush to find it fame." In her earlier married life, before family cares required home-staying, sho was a nfember of ' Wanganui Choral Society and of the Christ Church choir, and for a short ti^o

filled a gap as organist; 'During her residence (twenty-five years) in Wanganui and ;the< opposite village of Campbelltown, Mrs Allen became the mother of seven children. . Two boys died in infancy; , four sons and one daughter; all grown up, remain to- lament the loss of one' of the best and '^most< unselfish .mothers" who ever lived. The daughter and the two' eldest sons are married. , All the sons, ' having taken up land, now reside away from tho original home' near Mangamahu. • With vory few exceptions, however,' all members' of the. family have been able to meet at the old house at To Pohue every Christmas. Mrs Allen had had a severe attack arising from {hqart-complaint four months ago,, which had "much weakened her; and it is thought that the extra care and excitement of the last Christmas meeting .may have been" top much fqr her. She was intending. to stay with' her old friends at Oneida for a week

or two, and to visit 'Di Innes from thence. * Very inclement weather came on during, 1 hefc, journey towards town,' and ' possibly, .increased her sickness. Dr Innes found her very ill, but did not expect so hasty an end. Mrs Allen died in her husband's axmß ,^t 1 a.m., last Saturday, Mr Burnett being present during the final few minutes and giving every 'kind "help. VVitjtlieir many friends in Wanganui/- we extend our sincere sympathy ifco the sorrow-

ing husband and relatives. „ - . The funeral' , took place yesterday at MataVawa, tho Service being .conducted at, the church and at the graveside by the' Rev. A. O. Williams, the musical portion in the church being rendered by a choir of deceased's musical friends from Wanganui.
