Excerpt from The Philological Essays of the Late Rev. Richard Garnett, of the British Museum

This, with the exception of the concluding papers on the Nature and Analysis of the Verb, was Mr. Garnett's last literary labour. In, 1848 he had begun to suffer habitually from catarrh, and by the winter of 1849 it was but too evident that his health was declining. Still the progress of decay was very gradual, and his sons, at least, had little suspicion of its extent till the means of comparison between the actual and former state of their parent's health were afforded by a visit to Otley in June 1850, when it appeared that he who in the previous September had been accustomed to walk upwards of four miles daily to visit his aged mother in-law, was then unable to go much beyond the garden. On his return to London, however, he attempted to resume his official duties, and it was only at the pressing instance of the present Principal Librarian (at that time Keeper of the Printed Books, and ever the warm-hearted friend of him and his, ) that he consented to apply to the Trustees for leave of absence. This was immediately granted, but the decline of his health could not be arrested, and terminated in a peaceful death on September 27. 1850. He was interred in Highgate Cemetery.
