The late Mrs Adam Adamson - Our obituary columns announce the death of another old colonist in the person of Mrs A Adamson who passed away at her residence, Marlborough St. College Park, at 6am on Monday, at the ripe age of seventy seven. The deceased lady arrived in the colony in the Martin Luther in 1840 accompanied by her mother, 5 sisters and 6 brothers and with the exception of a visit to England about 18 years ago has resided here over since. She was of a very quiet and retiring disposition, and her chief delight for years past has been in making up clothing for the poor and needy, and helping those in trouble and distress.
