He was a man of very gentlemanly demeanour, mild and courteous, with the strictest uprightness and integrity of principle.— Another Correspondent says: Mr. WILKINSON was brought up to the medical profession, and in early life was surgeon of the West York Militia, under the command of the late Duke of Norfolk, when that patriotic nobleman gave so much offence to the then Tory government, by giving at a public dinner the famous toast—"The Majesty of the People," for which heinous crime George the Third erased has name with his own hand from the Privy Counsel List, and deprived him of the Lord Lieutenancy of the West Riding of Yorkshire, and Colonelcy of the Militia; upon which occasion the whole of the officers of the West York Militia, from respect to their Colonel, threw up their commissions. The Duke was so struck with the devoted conduct of Mr. WILKINSON, in giving up so lucrative an appointment, that he offered him the situation of steward, then vacant, which he has ever since filled, and by his kindness and urbanity of manner he will long be lamented by the tenantry on the Greystoke estates, as well as by a large circle of friends.
