Date of death

“Mr Hadow’s mannner was singularly unobtrusive, united with great steadiness of purpose and kindness of heart. He was a man of deep religious feelings, ever ready to sympathise with suffering and sorrow, and liberal to the full extent of his means, though few more truly entered into the spirit of the injunction,
“when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.”

While his colleagues lament the loss of a highly valued friend, the members of this Society cannot but feel that his death has deprived them of one whose devotion to chemical science, and whose skill and perseverance promised much for its advancement.

He died of pneumonia, after an illness of several months' duration, on 11th August, 1866, in the 35th year of his age.”

J. Chem. Soc., 1867, 20, 390-391.
