|New Zealand Herald, 10th November 1888|
The Opotiki Herald of Tuesday has the following;-
We regret to have to announce the death of Mr. Walter H. Boylan, who passed peacefully away on Saturday morning last. He had been suffering for some time past with a hacking cough that gradually wore him away.
About ten o'clock on the morning of his death, he said to his wife he was going to leave her, and asked her to get him his clothes. He then got up and dressed himself. He then had his child brought to him, which he kissed and said good-bye to. After bidding good-bye to his wife, saying, "I will leave you before eleven o'clock," he lay down on the bed on his back, stretched himself out with his hands by his side, closed his eyes as if in sleep, and then passed quietly away, and as he died, so was he buried, in his best suit.
He was buried on Monday afternoon in the cemetery here, Rev. Mr. Wills officiating.
Mr. Boylan kept the Omarumutu Hotel for some time past. He was a kindhearted host, and many a hungry tramp going and coming from Gisborne found food and shelter there who were without the means to repay him.
|Auckland Star, 10th November 1888|
