Hart, Samuel (1813–1867)

We regret to announce the sudden death, on Good Friday, of Mr. Samuel Hart, importer, of this city. It appears Mr. Hart was seized with an apopletic fit, about 7 o'clock, as he was about take his usual morning bath, and remained unconscious till about 10 a.m. when he died. Mr. Hart was an old and energetic colonist, whose interests were thoroughly those of the colony, and his untimely decease will be a source of grief to a wide circle of friends.
