His remains were attended to the grave by an unusually large concourse of people, over whose countenances the gloom of concern was universally spread. Few men are so generally known as was the deceased; few have been so generally lamented; and few indeed have possessed such endearing qualities. His affectionate kindness as a son, a husband, a brother and a relative, was unbounded – and the value of his friendship will long, very long, be felt by those who have sustained the loss of it. The ease, frankness and urbanity of his manners, were of a most engaging character; and the sense of honour which was conspicuous in his extensive dealing, inspired almost unlimited confidence in those with whom he transacted business, and, added to the soundness of his judgment, caused him, it is believed, to be appealed to as an umpire in differences in his neighbourhood, more frequently than any other individual who resides in it. In connection with these his distinguished philanthropy will occasion his loss to be very severely felt in every class of society.
