On Tuesday last, the mortal remains of P. G. William Hickson, late a member of the Loyal “Jack of Newbury” Lodge of Oddfellows, were consigned to their last resting place in the Newbury Cemetery, followed by nearly 60 of the officers and brothers of the “Briton’s Pride” and “Jack of Newbury” Lodges, habited in black scarfs, and aprons bound with black.

The procession was solemn, and attracted the notice of the numerous spectators who lined the street.  The deceased was one of the oldest members of the “Jack of Newbury” Lodge, having joined in 1845, during which time he had served with credit the various offices in the Lodge and district.  The advantages of this institution are strikingly displayed in times of sickness and bereavement, the members being assisted and visited during their illness, and the last token of respect paid them after decease by the surviving members.

The decease has left a widow and three children, the youngest a babe.  Bereft of her only earthly support, without any means of subsistence, under such doubly trying circumstances, is a severe stroke; and an appeal is earnestly made to those who may feel disposed to assist the fatherless and widow.  Any sums for the above object will be thankfully received on behalf of the widow by Mr. Lucas, Bartholomew-st., or Mr. Newton, Northbrook-st.

NOTE:  Initials P.G. stand for Past Grand.
