Arthur Hill (1784–1834)

from Sydney Monitor

On Sunday the 23rd instant, aged fifty years, at his lodgings in King Street, at the residence of Mr Hodges who paid every attention to him in his last moments, Mr Arthur Hill. Mr Hill was a gentleman by nature. His sentinments and principles soared above his station in life. His generosity and benevolence gained him a few faithful friends, and a large circle of acquaintance. Mr Hill never bore resentment after the first burst of a generous indignation, but was a pattern in the difficult attainments of forgiveness of injuries and placidity of disposition. His purse was ever open to relieve the destitute, and particularly the oppressed destitute.
