Solomon Levey (1794–1833)

We are extremely sorry to hear of the death, in London, of Mr. Solomon Levey, merchant, formerly of Sydney. Mr. Levey was universally respected. Considering the nature of our society, no man had fewer enemies. He was a great lover of New South Wales, and strove, according to his views of its prosperity, to promote its welfare. He objected to political interference as premature, and therefore never took part in Colonial politics.
