Gosper, James (1805–1837)

At Windsor, on the 12th instant, in the 32d year of his age, Mr James Gosper, deservedly lamented by all who knew him. He possessed in an eminent degree all those qualities that adorn the human character: he was a dutiful son, a tender husband, and a kind and indulgent parent. The last tribute of respect to departed worth was clearly evinced by the highly respectable and numerous assembly which accompanied his remains to the place of interment. An amiable widow and three children are left to deplore the sad event.
