Wills, Edward (1779–1811)

At his house, in George-street, on Tuesday night the 14th instant, Mr. Edward Wills, after a painful illness of nearly three months duration, in his 33d year. The generosity of his disposition was evinced in all his actions, —his integrity was undoubted; and he lived universally respected, as his death must be sincerely regretted by his most distant acquaintance; while his amiable family and those who were happy in his friendship will be devoted by the melancholy event, to a length of inconsolable affliction.
