    Notes 
    • Obit from the Norwich Mercury, 30 Mar 1844
      ===================================
      Mr Howes was known as a ripe amd spund classical scholar having addrssed himself to this branch of learning from its earliest growth. He was not less distinguished for the benevolence of his disposition, the sweeetness of his temper and the urbanity of his manners. The Editor of this Journal, who pays this tribute to his worth, passed through the Free School of tjhis City upon the same form as him, and testifies with a mournful satusfaction to the early develpopment of these his true qualities, to which they who knew him in later life will be ready to do the same justice, as well as to the liberality of his principles, and of his firmness in their assertion.
