Mrs. Wm. Rice [sic], of Melrose, gave birth to a baby on Christmas day, and this morning we learned the sad news of her death, which took place last evening. The death leaves five motherless children. This is another instance where one life was given for another.—Quincy Journal.

Mrs. Rice [sic] was a daughter of Mrs. Catharine [sic] Berberett [sic] of this city.
