We this day annex a list of the Burials in the parish of St-Peter-Port, occasioned by the Cholera Morbus, since its first breaking out in this place. We have, as far as our information furnished us with the means, given the age, condition , and place of residence of the persons whose names are here subjoined, and although here may be some inaccuracies in this statement, in the main, we believe it is substantially correct. Where the above particulars are not detailed, the omission has arisen from a want of necessary information, occasioned by circumstances which we could not control.
