Entry  HUNTER – Death of Mr Hunter of the Civil Service – Intelligence has been received of the death of Mr Hunter, of the civil service, under very melancholy circumstances. The catastrophe is described in the following letter, dated Ghazeepore, May 8th, 1838: - “Mr Hunter, joint magistrate of this station, was amusing himself yesterday evening about 6 o'clock, leaping a spirited horse over a ditch or drain. About the third attempt, the horse reared and turned, which suddenly unseated Mr Hunter – he fell on his head, crushing the crown inwards, and was taken up senseless; blood was gushing from his mouth and ears. Medical aid was speedily called. Mr Assistant Surgeon Jackson was first in attendance, but nothing could be done! - The poor gentleman never spoke again, and was dead in an hour after the accident. He is to be buried this evening.”
