James Arthur Sewell, M.D., L.R.C.S.Ed.

"Dr James Arthur Sewell died at Mentone on the 2nd. of January. He belonged to a family long settled in Canada, which produced some distinguished lawyers. His grandfather was the Honourable Jonathan Sewell, Chief Justice of Lower Canada. His father was a physician in Quebec. Dr. Sewell graduated at Edinburgh 1856, and at the same time took the diploma of the College of Surgeons of that city. He entered the service of the Honourable East India Company in 1857. During the mutiny he was amongst the slender garrison which held the Fort at Agra, the only place remaining to us in the North-West until after the capture of Delhi. Dr Sewell was present at the action with the Nemuch Brigade and other fights with the mutinous Sepoy regiments about Agra. He remained eight years in the Indian Medical Service, after which he resigned his commission and went Québec, where he married a Canadian lady who only lived a few years after the marriage. About twenty years ago, he went to London where he set up in practice. He married for the second time Mrs Elizabeth Ainslie, daughter of the late Robert Ainslie, Esq of the Elvingston. Everything seemed to promise a prosperous career, when there appeared symptoms of phthisis. Against the attacks of this disease Dr Sewell struggled with heroic fortitude. He tried many health resorts, the South of England, Pau and the Engadine, but finally settled at his residence, Villa Blanche, Mentone, generally spending the summer months in Savoy and Switzerland. Dr Sewell was above six feet in height, a remarkably fine looking man. He was of a cheerful and lively disposition and kind and faithful friend. He had a ripe knowledge of his profession, and from his general culture and travels his conversation was most agreeable. He had much power of wit and humour, and a large fund of anecdotes. His long and often trying illness was cheered by the care and company of his wife and daughter. His only son is now in Canada." Scottish Medical and Surgical Journal, Vol. 4. 1899, pp. 165,166.

My Dear Sons,
Before this reaches you, the afflicting news of the death of your affectionate father will have reached you and your brother, Mr. Winslow kindly undertaking the office. Your dear father made his exit on Tuesday, 27th September, and had it pleased Heaven to have lengthened his years, I should still have been happy to have discharged the duties of a wife with affectionate attention, which I trust I have faithfully done through life, and have reason to believe your dear father thought so. I was much afflicted Mr. Chipman could not be at the funeral of your dear father, but he was obliged to meet the commissioners at Passamaquoddy Bay. I must add, in justice to our friends, Dr. Paddock, and Ebenezer Putnam, it was conducted with respect and propriety. They followed as mourners Attorney General Bliss and little Chipman in deep mourning; and what, my sons, will afford you both great satisfaction, and what I have received much for myself, your dear father much wished to be interred with Judge Putnam in his vault. Mrs. Putnam readily complied with his desire; of this he was informed. I am grieved to have your joy dampened at the time of your nuptials; I should be very deficient if I did not mention the particular attention I have received. Mrs. Chipman has been particularity kind to me, Madame Putnam, her son and daughter, Col. and Mrs. DePeyster; each of their families putting themselves in mourn ing.
