"Death of Mr. David Jackson[1]"

A telegram was received to-day by the Head Office of the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank announcing the death from aneurism of Mr David Jackson, manager at Yokohama. The late Mr. Jackson arrived in the East in April, 1878, and was mainly in Shanghai down to 1884.

He was agent at Hankow up to 1886, and sub-manager at Shanghai in 1887, leaving in 1888 for Bombay, where he was agent until 1892.

He was appointed as manager in Yokohama in 1893. Of a genial, hospitable, and open-hearted nature, Mr. Jackson was one of the most popular men in Yokohama, and was highly respected by the Japanese, only recently receiving a decoration from the Emperor for his services in connection with the last loan.

He was a brother of Sir Thomas Jackson, the late Chief Manager, and leaves a widow, the sister of Mr. R.T Wright[2]. His sudden death comes as a blow to his colleagues in the Bank and his wide circle of friends and acquaintances here. Mr. Jackson was a young man, being only about 49 years of age.
