The body of Gustavus Foster was brought here from Boston Wednesday for burial in the village cemetery. He was formerly from this town. His wife died two years ago in October. She was Mary Jane Sawyer, a sister of John W. Sawyer of this place. Mr. Foster was a veteran of the civil war and was nearly 73 years old. His aged brother, Cushman Foster, of Wilmington, came down but arrived too late to view the body, the casket having been lowered in its last resting place. A nephew and niece from Shelburne Falls accompanied the body.
