John Scougall (1801–1834)

Died. At his lodgings in Sydney, John Scougall, Esq., merchant, much regretted by his friends. Mr. Scougall was a gentlemnan of the best dispositions and finest honour, but latterly he became the victim of intemperance, and thus fell in the vigour of his days, a monument of the damnable effects of what is called conviviality.
