6 JUNE 1845, Friday

At TREWITHIAN, in the parish of GERRANS, on Sunday last, Laura, second daughter of Mathew Garland CREGOE, Esq., after a lingering and painful illness, sustained throughout with Christian fortitude. Of retiring and studious habits, this young lady cherished but a limited intercourse with society, depending chiefly for her enjoyments upon those resources which a cultivated taste amply furnished her: reading music and her masterly pencil were her constant occupation. Finding delicate constitution assailed, she yielded at once to the stern dispensation, and contemplating the awful monitor in the distance, in the flower of youth, in the midst of affluence, and in the fullness of earthly joy, she surrendered to the Approaching separation from this world, with a murmur, and with a calmness and serenity, continuous even in pain, and only derivable by a reflecting mind from promises revealed, assurances brightened, and emotions genuinely religious. To her family, and the few who knew and valued her, her many virtues and qualities will long present a theme of endeared remembrance.
