"Mrs. Templeton — We regret to record the death, after a long and painful illness, of the aged widow of the late Mr. William Templeton, so well known in time past as the author of a long series of engineering and mechanical works. Mrs. Templeton died on the 28th ult. at the very humble abode of her daughter, 24, London-street, London-road,S,E., and was interred at Nunhead Cemetery on the 6th inst. It is painful to have to state that the last illness of Mrs. Templeton was endured in the midst of great pecuniary embarrassments, and that her surviving children, at the above address, are suffering from the same evil. We learn that Mr. Joseph Newton, late, of H.M. Mint, and who may be addressed at the Institution of Civil Engineers, Great George-street, would willingly receive and transmit to the surviving relatives of the deceased any donations that might reach him for that purpose."
