  • Notes 
    • The death took place at the House of Refuge, Berlin, last week, of Thomas Pearse, an old man who has been at the Refuge since April 1891. Death was due to old age, he having reached the age of 86 years. He was born in England and was an English Churchman. Speaking of his death, Mr. Geo. Martin, manager of the Refuge, said: The death of Thomas Pearce has removed one who will be greatly missed, because he was a faithful inmate, always at his post to help do what he could in our hospital. He did his full duty. So far as one can judge another, I should say he was a Christian. He expressed himself to me as being quite prepared for the change that was then stealing over him. He said everything was settled. He was ready.1a
