"Last Thursday (March 25), about noon, died suddenly, as he was visiting his patients, Dr. Dealtry, aged sixty-five ; whose learning, great skill and sagacity in the healing art, thro' a long and extensive course of practice, crown'd with success, justly procur'd him an uncommon degree of medical reputation, and render his death an unspeakable loss to the public. His social virtues make his loss irreparable to his friends, relations, and family, in particular to his amiable and disconsolate lady. His charitable assistance to the poor, humanity to his patients, with singular politeness to all, gain'd him universal esteem, and will endear his memory to posterity.
Flatt'ry avaunt ! can Science name the Man, Whose Loss was greater since her Reign began ?' " York Courant.

residence of the Judges of Assize, which was erected by another eminent physician, Dr. Clifton Wintringham. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Langley, esq. of Wykeham Abbey, co.

The wealthy and eccentric Mrs. Margaret Wharton, of whom Hutton, in his " Trip to Coatham," gives some amusing anecdotes, and whose character is portrayed by Foote, in a farce called " Peg Pennyworth," by which name she was afterwards popularly known.
This singular lady derived her descent-as did also her noble contemporary, Hugh, duke of Northumberland -from an alderman of York, John Bean, inn-holder, lord mayor in 1545 and 1565, whose daughter Mary married at St. Martin's, Micklegate, 6 Aug. 1554, Anthony Wharton, esq. of Regell Grange, co. Westmerland. The freehold messuage in Micklegate, which Mary Wharton bequeathed to her sister Margaret in 1771 (see No. 220), and in which the latter resided for some years, had belonged to alderman Bean.
Mrs. Margaret Wharton is said to have attained the great age of 102 years (Minster Reg., Gent. Mag., 1791, Grainge's Yorkshire Longevity, &c.) Her epitaph, however, records that she died "inn the 97th Year of Her age," and the following extracts from the parish register of Low Leyton in Essex, kindly communicated by the Rev. John Pardoe, the vicar, tend to show that she was still younger :
" Anne ye Daughter of Anthony Wharton Esqire & Margaret, his wife", bap. 10 Aug. 1695.
" Margaret ye Daughter of Anthony Wharton Esqre & Margaret, his wife," bap. 24 April, 1697.

LOST IN A JARRING WORLD'S TUMULTUOUS CRIES
UNMARKED AROUND US SINK THE GOOD AND WISE
HERE BURGH IS LAID; A VENERABLE NAME,
TO VIRTUE SACRED, NOT UNKNOWN TO FAME
LET THOSE HE LOVED, LET THOSE WHO LOV'D HIM TELL
HOW DEAR HE LIVED, AND HOW LAMENTED FELL;
TELL OF THE VOID HIS SOCIAL SPIRIT LEFT,
OF COMFORTS LONG ENJOYED, FOR EVER REFT,
OF WIT THAT GILDED MANY A SPRIGHTLIER HOUR,
OF KINDNESS WHEN THE SCENE OF JOY WAS O'ER,
OF TRUTH'S ETHERIAL BEAM, BY LEARNING GIVEN
TO GUIDE HIS VIRTUES TO THEIR NATIVE HEAV'N
NOR SHALL THEIR SORROWING VOICE BE HEARD UNMOV'D
WHILE GRATITUDE IS LEFT, OR GOODNESS LOV'D,
BUT LIST'NING CROWDS THIS HONOUR'D TOMB ATTEND,
AND CHILDREN'S CHILDREN BLESS THEIR FATHER'S FRIEND.*39
