Emily Rosalie Doyle (1839–1904)

Amateurs of music will remember Miss Bessie Doyle, a brilliant Sydney violinist, trained at Leipsic, who afterwards made a successful debut at St. James's Hall, London, under the name of "Eileen O'Moore," and also toured India and other parts of the world. This artist's mother, Mrs. [Emily Rosalie] Doyle, died suddenly on December 29 at Prague, Bohemia, where the violinist had taken a flat during her appearances at the Winter Concerts. Miss Bessie Doyle, who is now Mrs. R. Mitchell, was prostrated by her sad loss, but was making satisfactory progress when the last mail left.
