Herewith the death notice in the Grahamstown Journal for Charlotte Philipps (nee Arbouin). Dated 11 Dec 1834.

Died, at Glen Craig, on Wednesday, the 3rd inst., Mrs E. (sic) H. Philipps, wife of Thomas Philipps, Esq., Justice of the Peace for the Albany District. The deceased was greatly beloved, not only in her domestic circle, but by all who knew her; and although her general deportment bore ample testimony to her unaffected piety, yet it was more conspicuously manifest in a peaceful and happy death. Her illness, which terminated so fatally, was of but few days continuance, and when drawing to a close, she contemplated her approaching departure with the faith and hope of the christian; of one who can confidently exclaim, "Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which shall never fade!"
