Transcription:

 

Early on the morning of Christmas-day, to the inexpressible  grief of his parents, Walter James, youngest son of James Porteus and Ellen Jackson, Market-place, Newbury, aged 7 years and 8 months. 

 

 

CHRISTMAS PEALS.

 

The ringing of the Church bells, which always imparts such a cheerful aspect to Christmastide, was this year suspended on the Monday and Tuesday following Christmas-day, in consequence of the lamented death in the family of Mr. Churchwarden Jackson, and the decease of Charles Brimblecome, one of the ringers.
