Comment

"Sudden Death - Mr Posuett, superintendent preacher of the Methodist Connexion, died suddenly on Sunday night last. He was in the enjoyment of his usual good health up to the time of his retiring to rest on Sunday evening when he kneeled at his bedside for some minutes longer than he occasionally did.

     He had scarcely risen and undressed when his wife was alarmed at hearing a gurgling noise in his throat. Medical assistance was immediately sent for, but in vain ; before it was obtained he had ceased to exist".
