Evening Post 25 January 1875
On the 24th inst (accidently killed), in Wellington, Beatrice Kate Mullins, aged 4 years
We regret to record a very sad accident in Willis-street last evening by which Mr. and Mrs. Mullins, of the Lower Hutt, sustained a most painful bereavement. They were driving homeward from Mr, Anderson''s house at the head of the street, their four children also being in the vehicle, when their horse bolted in the cutting and Mrs. Mullins becoming alarmed, jumped out with the youngest child Beatrice Kate. The child fell on its head and was killed instantaneously. Mrs Mullins was much, shaken, but not seriously injured. The other children remained in the trap and beyond the fright were not harmed. Mr. Mullins was able to retain his seat and ultimately, to pull in the refractory horse. Dr. Harding promptly attended, and rendered all possible medical aid. An inquest was to be held this afternoon.

Wanganui Chronicle 27 January 1875
A very sad accident occurred yesterday. Mr and Mrs Mullins, of the Lower Hutt, accompanied by their four children, were returning home from a visit to Mr Anderson, of Upper Willis Street. When about half way down the steep cutting which leads from Mr Anderson''s residence, the horse bolted, throwing Mrs Mullins and the four children out of the trap with great violence. The youngest child, Kate Beatrice, appears to have fallen upon her head, for when the poor little thing was picked up it had breathed his (sic) last. Mrs Mullins and the three children, although they received no very serious injury, got a severe shaking Mr Mullins succeeded in keeping his seat and reigning in his horse after it had run a short distance.
