Transcription of article

Our record last month of the burial of father and son at the same time was probably unique in the annals of Wickhamford.  If so, such melancholy distinction is soon forfeited as we have a similar event to chronicle this month.  Mrs Cox, whose present bereavement is accentuated by the fact that she lost a son (one of the six she has given to the army) at Salonika only seven months ago, has been the recipient of many messages and acts of sympathy for which she desires to express her gratitude.  There would seem to be little doubt that Mr Cox met his death by being knocked down by a passing motor some time before Mr Jacques’ car arrived on the scene.  His son’s death, though less sudden, took place under circumstances exceptionally sad.
