de Lauret, Charles Antoine (1869–1882)

We announce with regret the death of Master C. A. [Charles Antoine] de Lauret, youngest son of the late A. Gr. de Lauret, at his mother's residence, Wynella, Goulburn. On Thursday, the 27th July, the midwinter holidays began at St. Ignatius' College, Riverview, where Master de Lauret had been a pupil since the opening of the college two-and-a-half years previously. None left the college on that day in higher spirits than Master de Lauret. Little did he, or any of his companions, think that before that day month the grave would have closed over his mortal remains. When the sad news reached the college all were deeply moved with sincere sorrow— he had endeared himself to all by his winning manners, and his unaffected piety, and now their regret was all the greater. On the following day, August 26th a Requiem Mass for the repose of his soul was celebrated by the rector, who addressed the pupils of the college in a few solemn words suitable to the occasion.
