WILLIAM HENRY PATTERSON, AGED 37, A NATIVE OF ENGLAND RESIDING AT MORNINGTON IN VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, DIED IN 1895.
FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.
It is with the deepest regret that I have to chronicle the death of Mr. William Patterson, the late manager for five years of the Mornington Gasworks. The sad event took place at the Homaepathic Hospital, Melbourne, on Saturday morning last, 11th May, after an extremely critical operation for tumor on the brain, which was performed on Friday afternoon at 4 oclock.
The deceased who never rallied was unconscious to the last, and died at 7 o'clock on Saturday morning. The sad intelligence was made known here shortly after, and an expression of sympathy and regret was heard on all sides. The deceased, who was 37 years of age. had won the esteem and respect of all who knew him by his generous upright and genial disposition. The body was conveyed from Melbourne to Mornington by the 1.10 p.m. train, the cortege leaving the Mornington Railway Station at 3.30 for the Moorooduc Cemetery, and was largely attended by friends wishing to pay a last respect. As the body was being taken from the train to the hearse many beautiful and tastefully arranged floral tributes ,consisting of wreaths., ? and crosses were placed on the coffin, an eloquent and beautiful token of esteem and regret. The deceased was interred in the Church of England portion of the cemetery, the Rev.B. N. White conducting the service. Messrs. Apps and Co. had charge of the funeral arrangements in Melbourne and Messrs. Edwards Bros. in Mornington. The deceased had no relatives in Australia, and the sad news will be sent to his relatives in England.
