CASE OF MRS. DALY
Mrs. DALY, whose husband and eldest child were lately drowned in Table Bay, is the daughter of an officer in the army; and when the melancholy accident occurred, which deprived her in one moment of both husband and child, the family was on the way to the New Settlement at Swan River, depending for support and future provision upon 6s 6d per day, the slender income of Mr. DALY’s rank as an Assistant Surgeon.
A widow, and with four children, the eldest of whom is six years and the youngest three months old, without means of returning to her native country, or a friend there able to maintain her, if she should return, Mrs. DALY is determined still to proceed to the Swan River, in the hope that, assisted by the pension of £40 per annum, attached to the rank of her husband, those accomplishments which she acquired under other circumstances and expectations may now be rendered available for the support of her remaining children.
To purchase mourning, suited only to her present condition, a little livestock to be forwarded with that which is ordered for the settlement, on account of the Government, and to place a small fund in the hands of Messrs BORRADILES & Co (the agents of the new colony) at the disposal of Mrs. DALY, and to be drawn for whenever Governor STIRLING, and her friends there, can apply it beneficially for her – a subscription has been commenced under the kind auspices and liberal assistance of His Excellency the Governor, Lady Frances COLE, Colonel and Lady Catherine BELL, and the charitable aid of such of our fellow colonists as shall be induced to join in affording a slender relief to the Orphans and the Widow, will be thankfully received by
The Hon.Mr. Justice BURTON
The Hon.Lt.Col. BELL CB
Messrs BORRADAILES, THOMPSON & PILLANS
And at the Office of this Paper.
