DEATH OF MR. FREDERICK JOHN BUNNY.
We regret exceedingly that we are called upon to announce the death of Mr. Frederick John Bunny, third son of Henry Bunny, Esq., M.H.R., of Wellington, which occurred at the Telegraph Station, St. Bathans, on the Ist inst. For about six years, Mr. Bunny was resident in Dunedin, where his kind heart and gentle and unassuming manners endeared him to a large circle of friends. In all matters connected with the Catholic Church he was most zealous and energetic and, we believe, it may be truly said, that the establishment of the H.A.C B.S. in Otago is due to his exertions, so that, although he has died at the early age of 25, he leaves behind him a lasting monument of his zeal and ability, which is, moreover, a certain indication that had life been spared to him, he would have accomplished greater things. Mr. Bunny was married only last Christmas, and his young widow is left to deplore his loss. We are enabled sincerely to assure this lady of the deep sympathy in her affliction, every where expressed by the members ot tho Catholic congregation of Dunedin. R.I.P.
Frederick married Mary KELLY in 1875.
