135. David Gosper

It is with great regret that we have to record the death of another of Windsor's highly respected residents, in the person of Mr. David Gosper. The deceased was a son of Mr. Alder- man J. T. Gosper, of "The Terrace," Windsor, and had lived in the Hawkesbury all his life. He was a man of quiet, unassuming nature-a characteristic trait of the family-but in his own quiet way did much good, and won the respect of all with whom he came in contact. He was 48 years of age, and leaves a widow and four children-one son and three daughters-including Misses Annie Grace (a nurse), Eva and Edie, and Mr. Harry Gosper, a porter on the railway at Werris Creek.
Deceased had been a great sufferer for over twelve months, with that dire complaint consumption, and although everything possible was done for him by those near and dear and skilful doctors, he gradually sank and passed away on Sunday night. Recently he spent three months with his sister at Bathurst, but the benefits he derived by the change were but temporary, and the symptoms of his old com- plaint soon returned, and his friends realised there were no hopes for his recovery. Sincere sympathy is expressed in all sides for the bereaved widow and members of the family at the loss of their breadwinner.
The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon, and was largely attended. The coffin was a polished cedar, with silver mountings, emblematic of the order of Oddfellowship. Deceased was a very old member of the Prince of Wales Lodge, the brethren of which followed the remains to their last resting place in St. Matthew's Church of England. The pall- bearers were Messrs F. J, Mortley, J. P., (Mayor), Joseph Ward, J.P., L. J. Barnett, G. Kirwan, and G. Pye. At the church the Rev. S. G. Fielding delivered an address, and paid a high tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased. A hymn was also sung, and the " Dead March " played as the corpse was conveyed from the church to the grave. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. Thomas Primrose.

137. Alfred Gosper

Much surprise was occasioned and great sorrow felt when the news of the death of Mr Alfred Gosper, of March Street, Richmond, became known. A sincere and genial friend and a man of upright character, he enjoyed the confidence, goodwill, and friendship of a very laree circle of friends in the Hawkesbury district. He was the son of the late J. T. Gosper, who lived on The Terrace, Windsor, and was for many years an alderman of the town and a much respected citizen. Mr. Jesse Gosper of Windsor, is a brother of the deceased. The late Alfred Gosper was 66 years of age. About six years ago he re tired from the railway service. He had been guard on the Richmond line for many years before he retired, in which position he was extremely popular with 'the travel- ling public. There never was a more conscientious public servant nor a more obliging guard. A few days prior to his death he met with an untoward accident. He fell from a cart and injured his spine, near his home. It was night time, and ay out all night and was in a bad way when found. He was immediately removed to the Prince Alfred Hospital for an operation, but pas- sed away on Monday last. There are many who will mourn for good Alf. Gosper and deplore his untimely end. . He is survived by his wife and seven children, viz., Edith, Frank, Myrtle, Lewis, Alma. Inez and Rita. The remains were laid to rest in the C.E. cemetery, Richmond, on Tuesday. Rev. F. Dillon performed the last sad rites, and Mr. Chandler of Windsor was the undertaker.
