Goldfields Involvement, 1854
Post 1854 Experiences
- DEATH of T. WHIPHAM, Esq.-It is with feelings of deep regret that we announce the death of Theodore Whipham, Esq., barrister at-law. This event took place yesterday morning, at Mack's Hotel, Geelong, where Mr. Whipham was staying, and was occasioned by a sudden attack of apoplexy. For some time post Mr. Whipham has suffered from constant headache and a rush of blood to the head-the premonitory symptoms, it may be presumed, of the attack which has terminated his life. The deceased gentleman arrived in tho colony in the year 1853, and has since that time held a good position and enjoyed a considerable practice at the Melbourne Bar. His loss will be much regretted by tho members of his profession, by whom he was highly esteemed, not merely for his legal and general acquirements, which were extensive and sound, but also for the qualities which distinguished him as a high-minded gentleman and a kind-hearted friend.
