Death of Mr. A. W. Watt. A large section of our readers will learn with sincere regret of the death, in Mexico, of Mr. A. W. Watt, the- late manager and secretary of the Mersey Trading Company. whose pleasure steamers plied between Liver- pool, Rhos-on-Sea, Llandudno, and Carnar- von. Mr. Watt was a great favourite with everyone who knew him in North Wales, where he had a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. A Cheshire paper of November 14th states :— We greatly regret having to announce the death, at Kincon Antonio, Mexico, of Mr. A. W. Watt, the marine superintendent in Mexico of •Mr Weetman Pearson & Co., and son of Captain J. 13, Watt, of Oxton. the well-known and highly respected Cunard commander, and until his retirement, the commodore of that line. The deceased gentleman served his apprenticeship in Liver- pool with Messrs. Japp & Kirby. Last year he was appointed tc take charge of the Lon- don office of Sir Weetman, Pearson & Co., and subsequently he went out to Antonio, Mexico, as marine superintendent there of that Company's oil ships. The sad news was received in London on Wednesday by cable from Lord Cowdrav, whose message, couched in terms ot sincere sympathy with the bereaved family, stated that Mr. Watt had died on Monday at Rincon Antonio Hospital from blood poisoning, caused by a wound in the leg, sustained through a fall at Coatzacoalcos three weeks before. The sad event has cut shoit a career which promised much usefulness and distinction, and has deprived the firm which he represented of a servant of high character and great capacity. To the bereaved father, especially, who re- cently lost a lifelong companion by the death of his wife, the sympathy of a large circle of friends will be extended in his great addi- tional sorrow at the unexpected and prema- ture death of a brilliant son. And it will be some satisfaction that he was so highly thought of by his employers, who have ex- pressed in no stinted terms their appreciation of his work and ability.
