Bowman, Matthew (1827–1848)

Died. Of consumption, at Archerfield, on the 19th instant, Matthew Bowman, in the 22nd year of his age, fourth son of Mr. George Bowman, of Richmond. The deceased was formerly a student in the Australian College, Sydney, where, having chosen the Ministry of the Gospel in the Free Presbyterian Church for his future labours, went to Scotland in 1844, to complete his studies; he attended the University three sessions, obtaining successively the highest honours in his class, but from the delicate state of his health was compelled to relinquish his studies, and returned to his native land in January last, in hopes of renovating his health, but continued to decline until death put a period to his sufferings.
