On the 19th ult at Fermoy, Samuel Lister Esq of the 84th regiment, age 20, and only son of Jeremy Lister, Esq of Halifax.

The melancholy accident which cut off, in the prime of life, this truly excellent young man, must ever stamp his loss with humble grace upon the hearts of his disconsolate family and friends. He went out with some of his brother officers, to bathe in the Blackwater. Hardly had he plunged in, before the current forced him from his depth. His friends saw him sink, beyond the power of assistance. And Oh! he sunk to raise no more.

Though every exertion was immediately made, the body was not found till it had been two hours under water. All means to restore life proved ineffectual – his sainted spirit had escaped forever.

He had left all those that knew him to lament and say He was the best of sons, of brothers, and of friends and lasting tribute is all the worthy tribute they can pay
