THE LATE WILLIAM SEWELL

The large measure of success which has attended his career as a sugar planter, a career in this parish extending over a period of thirty-four years, has been the well-merited result of the exercise of the soundest judgment ... and unswerving rectitude which characterized his every dealing...
