Born in 1846, he was educated at Elgin Academy and Aberdeen University. For many years an outstanding figure in the Assembly of the Church of Scotland, he became its Moderator in 1917. Although he was a convinced Presbyterian, he worked ardently for the wider and catholic unity of the Church, and will be remembered chiefly for his work in this connexion. The Ecclesiological Society was founded by him in 1886. His distinction as a scholar was recognised by honorary degrees from Aberdeen, Durham, and Dublin Universities. He published several works.

He entered his father's firm of warehousemen and manufacturers in Newgate Street, and when the firm became Faudel's Ltd., became its chairman. His municipal career began in 1884, when he served as Sheriff of London and Middlesex. He was created G.C.I.E. for his services in raising, during his mayoralty, 550,0001. for the relief of Indian famine sufferers.

- Emile Moreau, the French playwright, whose age was 70, claimed to be the author of “Madame Sans-Gêne.” He first wrote it as a drama, but at the suggestion and with the collaboration of Sardou, treated it as a comedy, and with it achieved world-wide fame. He specialised in historical drama and operatic libretti, and first achieved fame at the age of twenty-six with “ Parthénice," a one-act play, produced by Mme. Sarah Bernhardt. He was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1883 for a cantata, “Le Gladiateur," and won various other awards.

In 1913 he received the Murchison Award from the Royal Geographical Society for his ten years' work on the survey of the Sudan. He died of fever at Um Dafog in South-Western Darfur, where he was engaged on the delimitation of Franco-British frontiers in the Central Sudan.
31. Wilfrid Ewart, aged 30, a writer of much promise, was descended on both sides from distinguished soldiers. His father, Mr. Herbert Ewart, is the son of a Crimean Veteran ; his mother, Lady Mary Ewart, is the youngest daughter of the Earl of Arran. Owing to delicate health he was educated privately, and when sixteen published a volume on poultry. During the Great War he served in France. Later he travelled in Ireland, and contributed to The Times a number of articles, afterwards collected into a book. A novel, “Way of Revelation,” picturing English life during the war, was immediately successful. He was accidentally killed by the stray bullet of a reveller, in Mexico City, while on a journey through Mexico for literary purposes.
