Death of Miss S. R. Beck—Many of our readers will, we feel sure, read with regret of the death of Miss Susanna Rickman Beck, daughter of Mr. Samuel Beck, of 37, Elphinstone-road, Hastings, and sister  of Mr. W. E. Beck, of the Y.M.C.A., which took place suddenly at Stamford Hill, London, on Thursday last, under peculiarly painful circumstances.  The deceased lady retired on the evening of the 17th apparently well, though suffering from weakness and prostration, the after effects of an attack of influenza.  When called the following morning she was thought sleeping, but it was afterwards discovered that death had taken place.
