DIED

14th April 1810,
Aged 56 years.

Upon the top of it lay his Lordship's chain of office, and his sword and sash.

3

The first regiment of royal Edinburgh volunteers, commanded by Major Jardine (in absence of the Lord Justice Clerk,) paraded at twelve o'clock, and moved off at a quarter past one o'clock, forming the van of the procession, and playing the Dead March in Saul. Upon coming to the gate leading to the Greyfriars Church, they opened ranks in funeral order, through which the procession passed into the churchyard, when it formed nearly a square, lea ving the Magistrates and Council, with the relations of the deceased, to occupy the

centre. The first regiment of volunteers then took up their ground in front of the church, and, after the body had been lowered into the grave, and the senior herald having received the rod of office from the person who carried it, he pronounced the following words:

"Thus it hath pleased Almighty God to remove, from this life to a better, our worthy chief Magistrate, the Right Hon. William Coulter, Lord Provost of this city, and Lord Lieutenant of the city and county of the city;" he then broke the rod, and dropt it into the grave; after which the first regiment of royal Edinburgh lunteers, of which his Lordship was officially Colonel, fired three vollies over the grave while the earth was putting on.

The procession then returned reversed, the royal Edinburgh volunteers still marching in front. Upon arriving at the Cross, they took open order, saluting the Magis trates, &c. who passed along the line, uncovered, to the Council-chamber. The rest of the public bodies walked to the Parliament Close, where they dismissed.

The city arms were borne by a person 6 feet 7 inches high, dressed in proper 'costume for the occasion.

The conducting of the arrangements of this extensive procession was confided to Mr Trotter, of Prince's Street, whose promptness and taste in the execution of the whole reflect upon him the highest credit.
