John Watts, Gent.

On Tuesday last died at his house (Danet’s Hall) near this Town, after a short illness, John Watts, Gent. He was descended from an ancient family. He was endowed with many excellent qualities: a constant sympathiser with the distressed; his humane disposition far exceeding his income; and the sincerest of friends.
