New Zealand Herald 31st July 1902 page : 4  The changeable weather has been the means of producing severe colds, which in many instances have resulted in physical dissolution; the last victim is Mr. Jacob Henry Wright J.P. of Pukekohe. Recently Mr. Wright was attacked by a severe cold, which ultimately developed to pneumonia, from which he expired about four o'clock yesterday morning. Mr. Wright was about 64 years of age, and had been long a leading and successful settler in the Pukekohe district. He took a great deal of interest in public affairs. He had long been connected with road board matters, was for some time a member of the Auckland Education Board and had just resigned the presidency of the New Zealand Farmers' Union, and was one of the delegates at the recent conference in Wellington. He at one time aspired to become a member of the House of Representatives, but did not meet with the success he expected and had he lived we believe it was his intention to solicit the confidence of electors during the approaching general elections. Mr. Wright was as exemplary settler and one of a class which New Zealand can ill spare. He leaves a widow and a family of sons and daughters, grown up, to mourn their loss. The late Mr. Wright was a native of Cornwall, England and for many years was the district correspondent of the Auckland Weekly News and New Zealand Herald.
