It is with uncommon Regret we convey the following Piece of
melancholy News to the Public, as it must diffuse Grief as far as the Subject's
Name is known. Late last Wednesday Evening died of a Fever taken in Child-bed,
Mrs. Steuart, Wife of William Steuart, Esq; of Stafford-Street, in this City,
and Daughter of Sir Richard Butler, Bart. She enjoyed her Senses to the last,
and bore a painful and distressful Disorder, with that patient Submission, which
accompanies "The gay Conscience of a Life "well spent," and
indicates that Sweetness and Serenity of Temper, which rendered her as
universally beloved in Life, as she is now lamented in Death. From a most just
and exalted Sense of Religious Duties, flowed all the social Virtues in the
highest Degree: For to the tenderer Offices of Society, filial Piety, conjugal
Love, and parental Affection, and Friendship hardly to be paralleled, she added
the most extensive Benevolence and Charity, with native Politeness, and the most
engaging Affability. And what hightened all these excellent Qualities, they were
the pure Emotions of her Heart, and were consequently as unaffected, as they
were void of Ostentation. No wonder then, that Words cannot express the
Heart-felt Sorrow which attends this Lady's Death. Yet it must be every good
Man's ardent Wish," So to live, and so to die.-- Let me die the Death of
the Righteous, and let my last End be like his!"
