It is with great regret that we report the death of Mr. P.D. Greenstreet[sic], chemist of Cootamundra, at the early age of 34 years. The sad event took place at the local hospital at 6.30 p.m. on Friday last, the cause of death being that dreaded disease typhoid fever. Deceased had been ailing for some days before he sought medical advice, and the doctor immediately pronounced the case typhoid, and ordered his removal to hospital. Slight hopes were entertained from the first of his recovery, but everything that medical skill and nursing could do was resorted to, to pull the patient through the crisis, but without avail. Deceased was a member the local Masonic and Odddfellow's lodges, and at the funeral, which took place in the Church of England cemetery, on Saturday, the burial service of the former was read by Archdeacon Simpson, and that of the latter by Bro. J. Brady. Archdeacon Simpson and Rev. G. Hirst conducted the ordinary burial service. Deceased leaves a widow and two children to mourn his loss.
