Obituary - Albert Walter
Death the Great Reaper, has been amongst us lately, this time in the person of young Albert Walter, aged 19, youngest son of Mr Edward Walter of Moruya. Deceased was formerly in the ‘Examiner’ office from whence he lately left for Sydney to gain a master knowledge of the art of printing. Mr Walter, never of a strong constitution, found that Sydney did not agree with his health and returned about a fortnight ago to his native place, Moruya, suffering from pneumonia. Dr Boot was in constant attendance upon him since his return but all was to no avail, the unfortunate sufferer gradually sank and finally expired at 8 o’clock on Wednesday evening leaving a host of friends to mourn the loss of one cut off so young and who had endeared himself to so many by his kind and obliging manner. The remains of poor Bertie will leave the residence of his father at Gundary at 2 pm this day for their last resting place, the CE cemetery.
Moruya Examiner 28 August 1883
