The Straits Times, 29 March 1848, Page 3

In this day's obituary will be found recorded the death of James William Salmond Esquire, late Resident Councillor, of Malacca. Mr. Salmond joined the Bencoolen Service in 1824 and at the breaking up of that Establishment was transferred to the Pinang Civil list. The most part of his service was completed at this Station: he held various appointments previously to 1838, but in November of that year he succeeded to the Office of Resident Councillor and in July 1841 was removed to the same appointment at Malacca, which he left on sick leave a few weeks since. While stationed here, he was highly and deservedly esteemed for the warmth and constancy of his friendship, his generous disposition and honorable mind. The Native community testified their remembrance of these qualities by a full and respectful attendance at his funeral. -- Pinang Gazette March 18th.
