1842 Obituary [6]

In recording the death of Mr. Francis Bramah, jun., we naturally revert to the loss of his respected father, which we have so recently had to regret. At the last election he was named one of the Auditors of the accounts of the Institution, little expecting that we should so soon be deprived of his services.
