Little, Archibald (Archer) (1823–1855)

It is with unfeigned sorrow that our pen executes one of the most painful duties that ever devolved upon it, in announcing the premature demise of an esteemed friend—Mr. Archibald Little, who expired on Thursday morning, after a few days' illness, at his residence, Rosebank, Darlinghurst. Mr. Little was a solicitor, enjoying an excellent practice in this city; possessing not only the entire confidence of his numerous clients, but the esteem and respect of the whole community. In the prime of manhood, and possessing all the advantages of an ample private fortune, Mr Little's lot was, to short-sighted mortals, a most enviable one. Providence has however ruled it otherwise; and the only consolation remaining to the numerous circle of Mr Little's friends, is the hope that his early removal from life's brief dream, is in mercy, although incomprehensible to finite reasoning. Mr Little has left a widow and two children to deplore their bereavement. The funeral will take place this day; the procession to leave his late residence at 3 pm.
