      OBIT: Body to be brought here from New York Thursday--daughter of Edward Noyes Westcott has many friends in Syracuse

      The body of Mrs. Violet Westcott Morawetz will be brought here for burial in the Westcott lot in Oakwood cemetery Thursday, beside that of her father Edward Noyes Westcott, author of "David Harum".

      Mrs. Morawetz, who was the wife of Victor Morawetz, died Sunday at No. 907 Fifth avenue, the New York home of the family.
      Her health had not been good for a long time. She planned to go to California, and had written friends here that she would pass through the city to-day. But the trip was abandoned as her condition became worse. She had worked long and hard for the Red Cross and also for the Association for Improving the Contition of the Poor. She taxed her strength too much. She had been active in woman suffrage work also. In the summer and fall she tried to recuperate at the Morawetz country home at Syosset, L.I.

      Her death terminates an unusual romance. Victor Morawetz, railroad and corporation laywer, saw a painting of Violet Westcott done by a Syracuse woman. He fell in love with the face in the painting and sought the original of the portrait. He and Miss Westcott were married in 1911 in London, Eng.

      Mrs. Morawetz had many firends here. She inherited the keen humor of her father, whose book "David Harum" published after his death was probably the most widely read American novel of the century. The family lived in James street.

      Her mother was Mrs. Jane Dows Westcott. She was very active in St. Pauls church.

      Mrs. Morawetz leaves behind her husband, one brother, Philip Noyes Westcott.
