The death is announced by cable from London of Mrs. Large, better known as Miss Marguerite King, the Australian pianist. She had been ill since Christmas. Mrs. Large was the widow or Commander Ryder Large, D.S.O., O.B.E., who was found shot on the liner City of Harvard, of which he was captain, at Calcutta. Mrs. Large was a daughter of Mr. Thomas King, who many years ago was one of the proprietors of The Advertiser. Her mother (Mr. King's second wife) was Miss Ella Kennedy, a lady who, like her daughter, was a well-known pianist.
