The death took place on Monday night of Mrs. Emily Stilwell, proprietress of the Dolphin Hotel. She had lately undergone serious operations in London for removal of a portion of bone pressing on the brain, and after spending some time in a nursing home, had been moved to Newtown Common, in the hope that complete recovery would result, but the constitution was weakened by a long period of intense suffering and the end came on Tuesday.

With her late husband, Mrs. Stilwell originally kept the “White House”, which became a favourite of anglers, who found their bodily wants well catered for. Mr. and Mrs. Stilwell removed to the Dolphin in succession to the late Mrs. Stacey, whose husband, John, had been connected with the coaching period. The old-fashioned traditions of the Dolphin were maintained for many years, but customs have changed. Mrs. Stilwell established a considerable reputation for catering and the arrangements for many large and popular functions were successfully carried out by her. She was of a kindly disposition, and the poor never went empty away.

The funeral takes place to-morrow (Friday), the first part of the service at 12.15 at the Parish Church.
