Woodhouse, Edmund Hume (1823–1875)

I wish to express my regret for the death of Mr. E. H. [Edmund Hume] Woodhouse, of Mount Gilead, near Campbelltown, which took place at the close of last week. Mr Woodhouse had been suffering for many months, and wasted away till he was too weak to turn in bed; and after being only a short while confined to bed, he passed away peacefully and quietly on Thursday. The deceased gentleman has been amongst the foremost of our pure cattle breeders during the last four or five years, and also one of the leading men on the Council of the agricultural society. He spared no expense to get the best of stock, as witness his purchase of Imperial Purple 9th from Mr. Walter Lamb, and he found his reward for this outlay in the fact that he showed two of the best going bulls in the last year's show taking first prizes in the yearling and calf classes. Mr. Woodhouse was an excellent neighbour, a kind friend; and his loss will be severely felt in the Campbelltown district where he has done a great deal of good.
