Mrs. Veitch was the sister of the Rev. Harry Drew, who married a daughter of the late Mr. Gladstone, and who [Rev. Harry Drew] officiated at the funeral. There remain six children to mourn her loss. Among those present at the funeral was Mr. Harry Veitch a cousin of Mr. Peter Veitch, and a large number of relatives and friends, who testified their sympathy with the family in their terrible calamity.
