It is with extreme sadness that we advise you of the demise of Monsieur LeFarceur de Villeverte due to injuries suffered in an unfortunate accident. Monsieur was delivering a piece of his marvelous lace to the Baroness von Startzmann in her boudoir, which she rarely left. As Monsieur was leaving the Baroness he straightened his garments as was his custom so that he would look his best. Regretfully the Baron returned home earlier than expected and, completely misunderstanding Monsieur's mission to the Baroness, ran him through! Monsieur expired with a smile on his face, undoubtedly due to the payment made by the Baroness for the treasured piece of lace. He is survived by his grieving widow.
