Tuesday 27 July 1847

We mention with deep regret the sudden illness and death of Mrs. MAYNARD, Wife of C. MAYNARD Esq, of Graham's Town. The deceased took cold a few days ago which, unfortunately, terminated in inflammation of the lungs, of which disease she died on the night of last Thursday, the 22nd inst. During the short period of her illness, only nine days, she endured much physical suffering, but some hours before her dissolution she was freed from all pain, and in a soft, gentle sleep her spirit "returned to God to gave it". She was in her 41th year. Her death will leave a void in the social circle that will not easily be filled, and fling a shade over it that will not soon wear away. As a long tried and affectionate wife to her husband; as an intelligent, fond and dutiful mother to her children, her death will not be replaced in this world. She was buried on Saturday, and her funeral was attended by the personal friends of the bereaved family; by the principal civil and military authorities of the town, long resident on the frontier, and by a very large number of the townspeople, who swelled the mournful train, and deeply sympathised with the chief mourner and his numerous young and motherless family in the distressing bereavement with which it has pleased Him who is able to bring good out of evil, to afflict them; who, by saddening visitations like these, speaks in loud and solemn tone to all who, unmindful of eternal things, cling to the perishable things of life, indifferent alike to the frowns or smiles of their Maker: reminding them, as it is said in the beautiful and affecting language of the burial service, that "in the midst of life they are in death", that man "cometh up, and is cut down like a flower", and fades away suddenly like grass which is green in the morning and growth up, but "in the evening it is cut down, dried up and withered".
