      The death of Mrs. Elizabeth Annie Sly,
      wife of Mr. William Sly, of "Seymour,"
      Richmond, took place on Friday last, at the
      age of 68 years. For several years the de-
      ceased lady had been a great sufferer from
      rheumatism, and had been an occupant of
      the invalid's chair. During the whole of
      this time she was tenderly nursed by her
      daughter, Mrs. Ireland, and her husband.
      At times she suffered much pain and only
      those who had the nursing of her knew
      what a martyr she was. She bore her
      suffering with great patience, and was always
      resigned to the inevitable. During the latter
      stages of her illness pleurisy supervened.
      The late Mrs. Sly. was a descendent of one
      of the oldest families of the Hawkesbury
      district. Her maiden name was Elizabeth
      Annie Ross, and she was the only child of
      her mother's first marriage. Her mother
      subsequently married Mr. Johnson, and
      among the deceased's step-brothers are
      Messrs. Thomas, Arthur, and William John-
      son, all of whom are natives of Richmond,
      and who lived in the town for many years.
      The subject of this notice was identified
      with the historic Black Horse Hotel for
      years. In this connection it would not be
      out of place to briefly touch on a few his
      toric facts concerning the old honeymoon re-
      sort, as the Black Horse Hotel was termed
      in the early days. The original owner of
      the business was the late Mrs. Seymour,
      and on her death she bequeathed it to her
      daughter, Mrs. Sophia Sly. This lady held
      the license for many years, and conducted
      the place in a first-class manner. When un-
      able, through declining health, to conduct
      the business as was her wont, she leased
      it to her son, Mr. William Sly, the husband,
      of the lady who has just passed away. In
      the year 1886 he was married in the Church
      of England, in Sydney, by the late Dr. Fuller-
      ton. They went down in the morning and
      returned the same evening. About thirty
      years ago Mr. Sly took over the license of
      the old hostelry, and held it for eighteen
      years, during which time its popularity was
      well maintained. Since Mr. Sly disposed of
      the license there have been many licensees,
      among them being Messrs. Folbig, Folfar,
      Pearson, Clisdell, O'Keefe, Mrs. Anderson,
      Mrs. Dunn, and the present occupier Mr.
      Rapmund. About fifteen years ago Mrs.
      Sly was attacked with rheumatism, and it
      was, in a degree, due to her illness, that
      Mr. Sly decided to abandon the cares and
      worries of an hotel proprietor. He built a
      neat cottage beside the old hotel, and, with
      his wife and family has lived there ever
      since. The late Mrs. Sly was a gentle and
      kind-hearted woman, and was well liked by
      all who visited her house. The issue of
      the marriage was a family of seven child
      ren, viz.: Alfred (Auburn), Mrs. H. Powell
      (Richmond Bottoms), Mrs. G. Miller (Coogee),
      Theopholis (Richmond), Mrs. S. F. Ireland
      (Sydney), whilst Mrs. G. Hunt and Miss
      Jessie Sly predeceased their mother. Dur-
      ing the last few weeks of her life the late
      Mrs. Sly was nursed by Nurse Payne and
      was attended by Dr. Helsham. The funeral
      took place on Saturday, and was largely
      attended. The remains were taken from
      deceased's late residence to St. Peter's
      Church of England, where the Rev. Stanley
      Best conducted the solemn service for the
      dead, after which the burial took place in
      the Church of England cemetery. Rev. Stan-
      ley Best read the service at the grave and
      the funeral obsequies were arranged and
      carried out by Mr. A. Price.
