Mr. John Jackson, Distributor of Stamps

Wednesday morning died at his lodgings in this Town, Mr. John Jackson, Distributor of Stamps for the county of Leicester.—He was the only Son of the late Rev. and Learned Mr. Jackson, Master of Wigstan’s Hospital. Was bred to the Stocking-Manufactory, but had declined Business for some years. He was endowed with a good understanding; his knowledge of History, particularly the Medallic, was very extensive.—If some shades of Character proved the frailty of Man, yet his enlarged and benevolent heart, with the strictest probity in every transaction of Life, entitled him to the general estimation of all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.—We hear he has left the greatest part of his fortune to his daughter about 16 years old.—He was aged over 50 years.
