Many of our readers will regret to hear of the death of Mr Richard Hermann (sic), photographer. Mr. Hermann, who was a native of Germany, arrived in Wellington several years ago, and was for some time employed in the studio now carried on by Messrs. Kinsey & Co., on Lambton-quay. Subsequently he became a partner, but after a while he opened a photographic establishment at the corner of Cuba and Dixon streets, and had worked up an excellent business when he was attacked by typhoid fever, about three months ago. 

He made good progress under Dr. Collins' care, and a week or two ago he was sufficiently recovered to be able to get about the house. Unfortunately, however, he suffered a relapse, and his heart was seriously affected. All that medical skill could do was done, but he gradually sank, and breathed his last at his residence in Dixon-street at half-past 3 this morning, leaving a young wife and an infant only six weeks old. The deceased was an excellent musician. He was a man of unassuming habits and gentlemanly demeanour, and his death will be regretted by a large circle. We understand that his life was not insured.
