  1. 'April 20 [1814]. On his passage from Berbice to Demerara, Angus Fraser, Esq. merchant in Demerara, to the sincere regret of both these Colonies, where, by distinguished talents, liberality, and honour in business, and the warmest benevolence and generosity in private life, he was universally regarded, not merely with respect, but affection. Mr. Fraser, accompanied by four other gentlemen, was proceeding from Berbice to Demerara, in a schooner boat, which being overtaken by a sudden squall of wind, was upset, and, lamentable to relate, all the five thus prematurely perished.'
