Wednesday died at Weymouth, Mr John Loder, musician of this city. A widow and seven young children are left to lament the loss of a most affectionate husband and father, upon the whole industry depended their sole support. The poor widow has a benefit play on Saturday; their Majesties were not present; but the house, as it ought to be, was a good one; and Hughes, the manager, exerted himself in their service.
