DEATH
Another of the oldest inhabitants of Port Elizabeth has been removed in the
decease of Mr. Charles COOPER Sen. He had been long suffering from the
malady under which he at last sunk. He leaves a large family to deplore his
loss. At the same time as this instance of expected death comes with its
warning to our community, an instance of sudden death in the decease of Mr.
J. DIESSEL, a young man of promise, removed in the prime of life, occurs to
admonish all of life’s frailty. Mr. DIESSEL was proceeding with his wagon to
Somerset, and complained of nothing but headache when he left the house of a
brother-in-law a few days prior to his decease. How true, then, the
scripture text that “in the midst of life we are in death”.
