The cause of Dr. Shepherd's untimely death,. at the-ageof forty-six, was acute rheumatism, with hyperpyrexia, a diuase frQm whicli, we believe, he had first suffered when at Guy's Hospital. He was a man whom the profession-can ill spare'p fdr, although hc had never courted practice, and lately had altogether retired, yet his sympathies asnd interest were with us, and he was never slow to give ex>pression to his warm charity, his loyalty to lwnourable principles, and hatred of whatever seemed
more » ... whatever seemed unworthy. He was always ready to further public causes, not only with his purse, but by his time and sympathy and judgment. He was, in his family and to his friends, most genial, frank, and kind-hearted, feeling for and inspiring strong attachment among his intimates, respecting and respected by all honourable men. His memory will long be cherished with affection.
