r]-HERE is but little that need be added, at the close of this second 
.!. volume, to the few lines prefixed to the first instalment of the 
present edition of HEARI.'S Collections. I have already devoted to this 
task very much of the leisure of three years ; and yet we who have under- 
taken to place before the members of the OxlORI) HISTORICAL SOCmTY 
this singularly complete picture of an eighteenth-century scholar's life 
can only claire to have ruade a substantial beginning. 
As regards the text, I have continued to follow the rules laid down for 
my guidance when I first took the work in hand, and have found it 
increasingly difficult to make many large excisions without seriously 
diminishing the value of the book. I have spared no pains--with after 
all but imperfect success--to present my readers with an accurate repro- 
duction of Hearne's manuscript. The abstract of the correspondence 
has been ruade perhaps unnecessarily full, even at the risk of occasional 
repetition, in order to clearly indicate HEARNE'S sources of information, 
and the use which he ruade of them. In the notes, I have drawn as 
largely as I was able--though much less copiously than I could bave 
wished--upon material xvhich is still unprinted. R.AWLISOI'S 
Collections for a Continuation of the Al]wnae Oxonienses--here quoted 
as Rawl. J. quarto and folio--have been consulted throughout. One can 
only hope that a scholar in every way competent for the task may speedily 
be induced to carry on the great work of AITol,¢ WooI). I have like- 
vise ruade a cursory examination of the BAI.LARD collection of Letters. 
which throws more light on HEARIE'S diaries than perhaps all other 
authorities put together. Often as it bas been laid under contribution, 
this vast bod), of correspondence still contains many a vein of information 
hitherto unworked that will richly repay the historian and the biographer. 
It is no exaggeration to say that, when rendered accessible to students of 
the eighteenth century, the ]3ALLARI) collection will be recognised by them 
as one of the most interesting and valuable masses of documents for 
certain aspects of their subject which are anywhere extant. I bave set 
aside much material collected from printed books, in order to include as 
many illustrative quotations as possible from the sources here indicated. 
It must again be mentioned that the Index is a merely temporary one, 
though it will, it is hoped, be found to contain the greater part of the 

. o 

important names occurring in the present volume. It is proposed to 
issue a full Index on the completion of the work, which is unfortunately 
some years distant ; and we have thought that it would be a waste of 
labour and a vain expense to compile an elaborate and permanent Index 
to each successive portion of it. 
I have only to repeat my obligations to those friends to whom I have 
already professed myself indebted, and to the officiais of the ]3odleian 
Library, whose patience I must often have sorely tried, but have never 
yet found to fail. Nor must I forger to express my sense of the kindness 
of my critics, who, while furnishing me with many valuable suggestions, 
have welcomed most generously and indulgently a piece of work of the 
deficiencies of which I ana painfully conscious, but which, under circum- 
stances of much difficulty, bas been the best which I could offer. To 
edit these Collections as they might and should be edited would require 
many years of leisure; and it 'as perhaps presumptuous in me to attempt 
• to stand in the gap.' I must be satisfied if each succeeding volume 
shows an advance on its predecessors. Aud I shall be truly grateful for 
any corrections and suggestions which students of HEAR,'¢. and his period 
may think fit to send me. Even so, it is scarcely permissible to hope 
that this work will be found wholly worthy of one who to use the words 
of DR. Tro»As SnTr--himself one of the most learned men of 
a learned generation--'ran away with burdens 
which would crush others to atoms.'

cring'd to the Whiggish Interest again, as several others have done,) 
occasion'd him to desist, to the Amazement of several Honest Gentle- 
S r. I would not be understood by this to depart from my Engagements to

withstanding this, to stand for the County. But considering how dubious the 
Event of the Election will be, and the Great Merit of the Duke of Marl- 
borough, & how service,'tble it would be to us, and the Nation in general, if on 
this occasion of serving his son, we eould oblige him in out Interest, & thereby 
make the whole County more easy, & S t Robert Jenkinson more secure; I 
take the Liberty to propose to you, the aceepting my Interest in Banbury, in- 
stead of that of the County. I do not mean by this a precarious Interest, but 
such a one, as never to oppose )-ou, when )'ou think fit to stand for that Cor- 
poration, and to assist you whenever you shall eommand me. My Affairs 
o won't permitt me to wait on the Gentlemen myself; but I should be parti- 
cularly oblig'd to you, if you would communicate this to them, & let them 
knou,, that I expect no Fruits of this Letter, without they think it for thê 
Service of the Count)-, & will readily eome into it.

April 2 (Wed.). Yesterday Mr. Wdson, ]30. of the Isle of Man, coming 
to the Publick Library, he was very curious in seeing the MSSts & other 
Rarities, and told me that lately were found several Urns in the Isle of 
blan under Barrows, full of Bones, & that no Coyns were found near 
them. Without doubt they were 1)am'sh, the 1)an«s using to burn their 
Bodies. He also says several Axes were found, which I suppose might 
be Sacrificing or at least Battle Axes. Several Inscriptions also he men- o 
tion'd to bave been discover'd there; but the Letters he could make nothing 
of. Perhaps ]¢unick. Qucere ? He promis'd to send D r. Hudson an exact

Charles the first came to ye Crown, added. I believe this was Mr. Green- 
wood's Chamber, and perhaps his picture was put in the window, (as also 
the said date and arms, & the Regal Crown of England in the Study) by 
Sir Simon Bennett, a very great ]3enefactor to Universil College, and 
Pupil to the said Mr. Greenzoood. N.B. Over the Door is put C. G. which

ffune 13 (Tri.). A Copy of a Letter from M r. Dodwdl in Answer to 
a very long one from an Ano*o'mous in the North, conc. the Nat. Mor- 
tality of the Soul [dated Shottesbrook. April 26,  7o7 (t-i t)] ..... 
Out of a Letter sent from the said Anot9"mous to his Friend in Oxon 
conc. the said long letter, which he put into his hands to be convey'd to 
M r. .Dodwdl. 
You may observe how M r. D. has magnify'd the Platonick Philosophy and 
declar'd the knowledge thereof to be absolutely necessary for the understand- 
ing of the Scriptures. I have therefore endeavour'd to prove that Plato's 
Archetypa's, Etypa's, and Technical Termes are more expedient for y* 
clouding than clearing of thê Scriptures. In the next place l've endeavour'd to 
convince him that his magnificat upon Plato s a disparagement to his Cause, 
making it as clear as the Sun, out of Plato's \Vorks that Einent Philosopher 
did assert the Immortality of the Soul : and that he might not suspect my 
opinion to be singular, I have appeal'd to Tully, Alcinous, and Diogenes Laër- 
tius. And being he pretends a mighty Veneration for the Authority of the 
Primitive Fathers, l've summon'd most of the Fathers of the 4 t Centuries 
{to whom he pays a singular Regard) to attest my Assertion. So far bave I 
already dispatch'd, and from these Premises I shall argue ad hominem. Being 
(according to his Sentiments) Platonick Philosophy is so necessary for the ex- 
pounding of Scriptures, and the Primitive Fathers were Platonicks in their 
comments upon the Scriptures, therefore Plato affirming the Soul to be natur- 
ally immortall, the Fathers, his suppos'd disciples, yea and the Scriptures being 
a Confirmation of the Doctrine suggested before to Plato, must by an invio- 
lable Consequence declare the Soul to be naturally immortaL Now that 
Plato did maintain the Natural hnmortality of the Soul is evident, not only 
from those Arguments by vhich M r. Dodwell demonstrates the Truth of his 
Hypothesis, but also fronl his Principles. For the Knowledge of his Actual 
Immortality whereby he supposeth the Soul to be secur'd from the Mortality 
of its Nature he often asserts to be the effect of Extraordinary Revelation & 
reserv'd for the Priviledge of the Gospel Peculium. So that Plato living in 
the rimes of Ignorance, he could never so much as dream of that Actual Mor- 
tality. Therefore the Immortality he did assert must of necessity be a natural 
Immortality. T.erefore if the Scriptures were inspir'd in a Platonick style, 
& the Fathers did understand 'em in a Platonick sense they must by the 
Tutoring of Plato maintain the saine Doctrine, and consequently declare the 
Soul's Immortality to be natural and hot actual, proceeding from either the 
Pleasure of God, which was never to him reveal'd, or from an hnmortalizing 
Spirit, which is the meer Creature of M r. D's overteeming Fancy. - 
King Charles IIa having given a Commission to a Gentleman to raise 
a Company of Souldiers, & meeting him by chance a little after ask'd him

Character behind him of a Learned Divine, a charitable Man to ye Poor, 
and in several respects of a Publick Spirit. tIe died just a fortnight after 
ye Publication of his Testament, & by his Death the Writer of these 
Matters bas lost a great Friend. D r. Francis Gregory Rector of Hamble-

Mill at his Parsonage Chtirh of Blechingdon, in ye Chancell, in ye saine 
Grave his Wife had been buried in several years before. He was attended

Parish, most of which came to Oxon on purpose to pay this last Respect 
to their Minister who had done so much to ye Poor People of that Place, 
by placing out Children &c. hot to insist upon his Benefaction to the 
Church & Parsonage House. The Pall was held up by D r. Turner

some Account of him befre in one of these Books. Quoere ? I think

cipal of St. Edm. Hall Mr. Tho. Pearson A.M. and Fellow of Queen's 
Coll. who deservedly bears ye Character of a modest, good natur'd Man, 
and a plain practical Preacher. The Electors wcre for some time put to 
it, none of ye College being willing to accept it, (the Hall being but thin 
ao at present) unless upon very considerable Terres of Advantage from ye 
Coll. Accordingly therefbre at last  they agreed that if Mr. Pearson 
would take it he should bave ye Option of a Parsonage, and in ye mean 
time bave a Pension from ye ColI. equivalent to a Fellowship: which is 
nothing else but an Evasion of the Stature which says none shall be 
socius & Principal at ye saine rime ul/ra sex menscs. It was expected yt 
Dr. Hudson should bave been elected by them; but ye present smooth- 
booted Provost vas one of yO chief who formerly got him turn'd by a

him ruade Principal. lXl r. Hill one of ye Fellows xvas a great Manager of 
2o this Affair, as he was in bl'inging in D r. Lancaster Provost, tho' if he had

Probity to be Head, and the world might bave seen several persons train'd

rived from it for illustratig the Antiquities of Britain beyond what we have 
already in his printed Commtntary on tbe Itinerary of tntoninuz. Rhenferdius 
writes that he would reprint the Greek Onoma3ticon Of Eusebius Caesariensis if 
he could meet with a MS. to collate Bonfrerius' ed. by. Is any MS. known to 
H. or Dr. Hudson ? ' It is shamefull & scandalous, that no booke can bee 
borrowed out of the Royal Library without paying such exorbitant fees, 
Of W eh SO little care is taken, & to w eh accesse cannot bec had without 
great difficu]ty in the absence of Dr. B. But this is ilot Dr. Hudson's case 
alone. About a yeare or two since I desired the Keeper of ye Paper- 
Office at Whitehall to let mee have a sight of several Papers there, where 
formerly I was readily admitted : but hec ruade a great difficulty of it, and told 
Iiee that hee could hot do it without a warrant under the Q9eenes hand. I re- 
plyed xvith a just indignation, that I had no other designe, but fo serve the 
public, and would hot bec at such an excessive charge fo satisfy my curiosity, of

his Life of Claudius, who was descended from yo Dictator & b¥ his own Mili- 
tary Actions did add fresh Honour to yO Family, as is observ'd by Tacitus in

particulars of yO History tobe left out, as yt of the Geese. And because the 
Numidians were famous for fighting on Horses without Bridles, the Horses on

cure Britannis res fuit, illum referri oportere. Nec tamen ulla se indicia mihi

o !My Lord,--I will tell you as a particular Friend, that even without leave 
(which ought to have been had) I did venture the other day to rarnble into

trating as far as I could how hIatters stood there, and how out Fate is like to 
be deterrnin'd by yt Gothick Hero, who with an Handfull of Men makes hirn- 
self dreaded and courted by ail y Powers of Europe. As for his Person, he 
did not dernentir y Description I had of hirn. He is a tall handsorne Gentle- 
man, but irnmoderately dirty and slovenly. His Behaviour and Carriage more 
Rustick than you can imagine in so young a man should be ; and that the out- 
side of his Qarters should not belye the Inside, he has chosen the dirtyest 
30 Place of all Saxony and one of ye saddest Houses. The cleanest Place is the 
Court before the House where every Body is to alight off his Horse, and is up 
to ye Knees in dirt, where his Horses stand with hardly any Halters, and 
Sackings instead of Cloaths, wthout either Racks or lIangers. The Horses 
have rough Coats, thick Bellyes, thin Buttocks, and switch Tails. The Grooms, 
that look after thern seen not to be better cloath'd, nor better kept than 
their Horses, one of which stands always ready saddled for the rnighty Mon- 
arch, vho runs out cornmonly alone, and bestrides his Steed, and away he 
gallops before any one else is able to follow hirn. Sornetirnes he will go ten 
or tvelve of these Country lliles in a Day which is forty or fifty of out Eng- 
40 lish Miles, now in the Winter rime bespatter'd ail over vith Dirt like a Pos- 
tillion. I should rnake rny Letter too long, if I should tell you his Dress, his

behind and before, which shews his Majesty's old Leathern Wastcoat and 
Breeches, which, they tell me, are sometimes so greasy that they may be fry'd ; 
but when I saw him they were almost new ; for he had been a Gallant a little 
before. He had been to.see K. Augustus's Q3een upon her Return to Leip- 
sick, & to be fine he had put on those new Leathern Breeches, spoke not 
above three words to her, but talkt to a foolish Dwarf she had about a quarter 
of an Hour, then left her. He wears a black trape Cravatt, but ye Cape of 
his Coat button'd so close about it, that you cannot sec whether he has any or lO 
no. His shirt and wristbands are commonly very dirty: for he wears no 
Ruffles or Gloves, but on Horseback. Itis hands are commonly of ye same 
Colour of his VCristbands ; so that you tan hardly distinguish ym. His Hair 
is light brown, very greasy and very short, never comb'd but with his Fingers. 
He sits upon any Chair or stool he finds in the House, without any Ceremony, 
to dinner, and beginns with a great Piece of Bread and Butter, having stuck 
his Napkin under his chin ; then drinks witll his mouth full out of a great silver 
old fashion'd Beaker small Bear, which is his only Liquor. At every Meal he 
drinks about two English Bottles full ; for he emptyes his Beaker twice. Be- 
tween every bit of Meat he eats a Piece of Bread and Butter, which he spreads 2o 
with his Thumb. He is never more than a Q9arter of an Hour at dinner, 
eats like a Horse, speaks not one word ail yO while. As soon as he rises, his 
Life-Guards sitt down at ye saine Table to yo saine Victuals. His Bed-Cham- 
ber is a very little Dirty Room, with Bare-Walls, no sheets nor Canopy to his 
Bed, but ye same Quilt that lyes under him turns up over him and so covers 
him. At his Beds-feet stands his Close-stool, a sad dirty wooden thing. His 
writing Table is of a slit Deal, w th only a stick to support it, and instead of a 
standish a wooden thing with a sand-Box of yo same. He has a fine Gilt Bible 
by his Bed-side, the only thing that looks fine in his Equipage. He is a very 
handsome Man, well shap'd, and a very good face, no stern Countenance, but 3o 
he is very whimsical and positive, which makes ail yO Allyes afraid of him : for 
he risques himself and his army s easily as another would fight a Duel. He 
bas not shown much Generosity to K. Augustus who sent Chart Blanch to 
make a Peace, and to recommend himself to his Friendship, but does still every 
day do very hard things to that poor Prince whom he treats always like one 
he has intirely in his Power, and K. Augustus is as well a bred Man as you 
shall sec, and very obliging in his Person and Behaviour, lik'd by every one. 
But now he pays for ail his false unfaithfull Politicks, and finds too late that 
one Prince should hOt intirely submitt to another. But that my Letter is too 
long already I would give you some account of yO Polish Court of K. Stanis- 4o 
laus : For being incognito only with a Friend and one Footman, and impossible 
to be known, I would take a Tour to Leipsick, where I not only saw yt King, 
but he very civilly came and spoke to me and my Friend, seeing we were 
strangers. His Court has much a better air than that of his Maker, and 
his Mother and Wife were there, a Couple of well bred \Vomen, well 
drest, and both spoke very good French. He is a rail handsome young 
IIan, with a great Pair of "O.rhiskers in yO Polish Dress, but inclinable to be 
fart, and a little upon yO dirty as ail yO Poles are. He was lodg'd in a very 
pretty Castle, belonging to K. Augustus, but against yt King's will, who vill 
never sec him and cannot abide to hear him spoke ol, yet tlae Swedes would 5o 
oblige him to sec him, which they say he ought to do by yO Treaty. You us'd 
to tell me (my Dear Lord) you lov'd to hear of my Rambles, and I believe this 
may please you better than my former, being a very truc Description of this 
mighty dirty Monarch.

Dar S r, Sept. xi. 
I thank you for your northern Greek ; but what is y" reason yt a Poeda- 
gogue cannot write 6 lines of Latin without discovering his Trade ? For 
surely M r. Banks's Preface was patch'd up out of Winchester Phrases. But 
what think you of primus statuit (ni me longe fallat augurium) Ph. Labbeus 
&c. .Vas guessing what has been call'd augury by y ancients ? \Vhy could hot xo 
conjectura have served ? But yo schoolmaster nmst be metaphorical. 
I have no MSt of C. Aurelianus & ni me longe fallat augurium, there is 
scarce any to be had in England. I would be glad to know what Editions the 
Gentleman, who intends to publish it, has. I suppose he knows yt it is almost 
finish'd already in Holland. I take it for granted that he consults ye Nation of 
Criticks, who have made that sort of Learning their Business. But above ail 
Reinesius in his various Lections has hot a little. Aurelian indeed is a very 
usefull Writer, but obscure (the Misfortune of his Age & Nation) & incorrect. 
& to publish him with advantage requires a Person y* is & has been conversant 
in y sort of Lofe. .o 
Anton. Musa is neither scarse nor valuable. I bave several Editions of him. 
He is among those publish'd by AIdus. Some bave thought Apulejus the Au- 
thor of y* Peice de Betonica. But 'ris so slight yt I should hardly attribute it 
to any considerable Man, much less to any ancient. Yet under his naine and 
with his Peice de virtutibus herbarum (if at least that be his) with some varia- 
tion 'ris publish'd by Wechel at Paris 59. fol. Humelbergius who com- 
mented upon Apicius & Q:.. Serenus Sammonicus has thought it worth his 
while to publish them both with notes in 4 °. & thinks him tobe ya saine who 
was Physitian to Augustus, but his arguments need no other Confutation but 
yo futility of ya Book. This Humelbergius does indeed explain his Authors 3o 
generally very well» & therefore in my opinion his Editions of them are ya best 
and most usefull (hot excepting Keuchenius's of Sammonicus, much less Lis- 
ter's of Apicius) but he had always y luck to publish those that are spurious.

Hon rd Sir,--I thank you for your kind Letter, and ye offer you make of 
e what Copies of ye Shield I nay bave occasion for ; and I wish I were able te 
make a suitable Return. I ara very unwilling te dissent frein a Gen t. of your 
great Sagacity and approv'd Learning; but I humbly beg leave te think yt 
Bridles wcre in use among the Romans some considcrable time before ye 
taking of Rome by the Gauls, w eh was /n. U. C. 65. Ner de I know 
of any place te show yt the Roman Authors thought otherwise. Livy speaks 
of ye Ntmidians fighting against ye Romans wthout Bridles (and they were 
famous for it) but he relis us that it seem'd strange and unus[u]al te ye 
Romans ; which he would net bave done had he been of opinion that Bridles 
were not very soon amongst them. They were famous for "Var even from ye 
30 very Foundation of ye City. I am inclin'd fo think yt the Ancestors of 
RomMus coming from Troy brought this Instrument with them which cer- 
tainly, as appears from  Homer, was in use in the Wars between the Groecians 
and ye Trojans. 'Tis truc indeed Livy mentions the Latins as being rudes 
artiuin ; but yt is to be understood only of the Liberal Arts, he being in yt 
place speaking of the bringing over of Letters by Evander. If he had in y 
Annals found any the least hint yt Bridles were hot early he would have noted 
it ; because he appears to have been very particular in other Respects in set- 
ting down things of less moment. Nor can I imagine yt in Claudius's time 
(when you agree the shield was donc) the Designer could be of Opinion yt ye 
4 ° Romans in Camillus's time were wthout the use of yO Bridle ; since he saw the 
contrary represented on Coyns (amongst which were those that exhibited the 
triumph of Camillus in a Chariot of "White Horses), and other Monuments of 
yt kind, if ve may guess from w t we have remaining at present, which, even 
those yt are ancienter than Claudius, constantly make yO Horses in ye trium- 
phal chariots to have Bridles. But whatever be ye reason of the Horses being 
thus represented, 'tis certain ye Learned \Vorld is highly indebted to you for 
ye expence you have been at in the Engraving the Shield : and I ara heartily 
glad yt such a valuable hlonunent fell into so good Hands. bien of skill & 
Judgment will always set a Price upon such Curiosities, and will despise the

Sept. 28. 
You are mistaken in your conjecture about Artorius. For there was eer- 
tainly such a Man & Physitian to Augustus. Vosgius, Casaubon & Lambecius 
are of opinion yt Antonius Musa & Artorius were ye saine Person, but they 
are mistaken too. Certain it is that Mu was ye Man yt cured Augustus by 
altering ye Method of ye former Physitian. Horace could hot be mistaken in 
his Naine. Suetonius & Pliny & Dion Caius aee in it, & I queion hot o 
but ye Author of ye Tract de Betonica took his Name to recommend his Book. 
That Augustus had another Physitian whose naine was Artorius & mention'd 
by several autho, hot for healing boE preserving him by a dream I flfink 
there can be no dispute. I will not trouble myself with long otations but 
refer you to some Autho for a Proof both of ye Naine and of ye Profeion 
too. Sec Valerius Max. l. . c. 7. Vel. Pat. l. e. c. 70. who both liv'd in 
Tirius's rime. Plutarch in Bruto. Lactantius l. . c. 8. Eusebius is parti- 
cular in ye time & manner of his Death. Artorius Medicus Austi post Ac- 
tiacam victoriam nauIagio perijt. I suppose 'twill hot  disputed but yt yO 
Illness of which Musa cured Austus hapned a good while affer his Victory 3o 
at Aium. So y if what Eusebius says  true, Artorius & Musa could not 
 the saine man. 'Tis plain from ail the authorities ave yt Artorius was 
Augustus his Physitian before Brutus's Death, & then Augustus w very 
young. 'Tis plain from Eusebius that Artorius xvas drown'd A. U. C. 73. and 
?om Dion Cassius that ye sickness of which Musa cur'd Austus was about 
8 years after. So y 'ris in my opinion very probable y Augustus had two 
Physitians who succeeded one another. Aorius, who preserv'd him by a 
dream, and Antonius Musa who recover'd him by cooling Medicines. But

The Dialogue between the Archbv. of Cant. & lir. Higgins in verse. 
Anewsong. TotheTuneof* * * 

Thçre happen'd of late a leamed ])ebate 
Concerning y Zeal of y° Gown 
'Tween Archdeae'n Higg & Arehbo. 
Whieh mueh has diverted the Town. 
Says Higg to His Grace I ara corne to 
your face 
To justify ,«t I have doue ; 
have preach'd at S t. Brides & some 
Places besides 
Of Matters as clear as yo Sun. 
His Graee then reply'd tho' it c,'m't be 
But w t you have s a may be truc, 
Yet men of your Heats put us all into 
And y Church & the state will undoe. 
¥ou were once of ont Party A Williamite 
But now you have alter'd your Toue. 
Says Higg 'ris a shame to King W m's naine 
If an lqonest M,-m must hOt be one. 
is hard says yo Priest if the Doetrines 
of Christ 
May hot be asserted w ta Zeal : 
fil summon y Crowd & er}, out aloud 
What God fias been pleas'd to reveal. 
rm resolv'd to be hot 'till yo r Laship has 
Some Ecelesiastical Bireh : 
To whip those yt east us as low as Erastus 
In yo Rights of y Xti,'m Church. 

At length you'l confine us to surfer Socinus 
To scatter his loyson abroad : 
And before you'll cxhort a great M,'m of 
yO Court 
You'll let him declare there's no God. 
Such Books should for shame be con- 
demn'd to y Ylame 
As Toland & Asll have printed : xo 
Vile Notions you sec of the Mystieal three 
By Emlin and others invented. 
Says His Grace tho' such Men have pro- 
vok'd w  their Peu 
'Tis the prudenter Way hOt to knov it : 
For Busby in truth has but tickl'd the 
13y Foolishly guelding the loet. 
M . Asgil by Fits they say's out of his 
Wits 20 
Whieh is rather a Case of Compassion : 
He raves of some Trick Sir w t' his Mag- 
hum Elixir 
To immortalize Men by Translation : 
As for Tyndal & those who the Chureh 
Rights oppose 
We may thank the late 13o. of Woreester : 
Neither would we allarm the Bo. of Sarum 
Or my very good Brother of Gloueester. 
Says Higg to his Graee if this be W Case 3o 
Farewell out Relion & Laws : 
"We Presbflers fight for y Churches old 
13ut out Bos sneak to the old Cause.

Oct. 4. Dr. ri'. Smith to H. Does not believe that Charles I. ordcred 
Jeremy Taylor's naine to be struck out of the list of his Chaplains. After his 
betrayal by the Scots, his Majesty was deprived of the assistance of his 
Chaplains : w ch most unchristian & barbarous behaviour of these Deviles to- 
ward him afforded him in his solitudes & imprisonment just matter of com- 
plaint, and was very irksome to him : of wch'he has left to the world his just, 
his pious, his divine thoughts in one of the Chapters of his Ei«ov.' His ' pre- 
terition' at the Treaty in the Isle of Wight hot to be imputedto his prejudice, 
as several other eminent persons were omitted. But his good and politic de- 
signs cannot justify his publishing that unhappy book. Condemns 
Thornton's neglect in not making his will. Hopes Mr. Bagford's History of 
Printing will be of value, though the subject requires better judgment and 
more comprehensive knowledge. Looks forward to Vol. II. of Llhuyd's 
Archaeologia, which he finds excell.nt, though the generality of subscribers 
are dissatisfied with it. \Vishes that H. or some qualified person would antici- 
pare Tanner by publishing Leland &c. Lord Leominster bonght the Arundel 
statues of the Relict of the Duke of Norfolk for very little. ' I doubt not but 
that if the Duke had lived, and had been addressed to by Dr. Yerbury, as was 
designed, hee would have given us the Statue of Pallas to place it in out College 
Qp.adrangle.' Harduin has printed 7 vols. of the Councils, which will not be

Univers. Coll. A.M. preach'd a Sermon at St. Marye's, somew t favouring 
lopery, w eh he was forc'd to retract. In King James's time he declar'd 
himself a Roman Catholick, and, as 'tis said, bas writ several things in 
]gefence of yt Religion of which Inquiry must be ruade. -- Will. Nichol- 
son of Queen's Coll. of which he was Fellow and afterwards Chaplain to 
Dr. Rainbow Bi'. of Carlisle, by whom he was preferr'd to ye Archdeaconry 
of Carlisle. When he was Undergraduate 'twas observ'd that he had 
good strong larts, but was a very drunken, idle Fellov. When 13ach. 
of Arts he grew a little better and apply'd himself to ye Study of ye 
io Saxon Language, which nade him known to 13». Fell and Dr. glarshall. 
'Fhe first of them I suppose perswaded St. Joseph Williamson to send 
him a travelling into Itigh-Germany, purposely to perfect himself in ye 
Saxon Tongue. When Master of Arts he was pitch'd upon by lXIoses 
Pitt to do something in the English Atlass, & he did one volume of it. 
'Tis carelessly done, being nothing nlore than a hasty transcript out of 
other Authors, whom he never mentions. When Archdeacon of Carlisle 
he espous'd ye Interest of S r. Xtopher lIusgrave, who had a great hand 
in preferring him to ye Bvprick of Crlisle. 13efore yt time he was look'd 
upon as firm and stanch to good honest Principles, vhich he has since 
20 most shalnefully renounc'd, courting ye favour of ye Logger-head at 
Lambeth. Ho has printed some Serinons, but very mean and hardly 
remarkable for any thing but his asserting ye Jus ]3ivinum of Monarchy 
& ]3efending Passive Obedience. This Sermon I think, was dedicated 
to bIr. * * Musgraçe eldest son to St. Christopher lXIusgrave 6: at yt 
rime one of yO Clerks of ye Privy-Council. He has writ several other 
things amongst which is his English & Scotch Historical Librarie in 
3 vols 8 vo. He was always a Persecutor of D r. Hugh Todd, &, it may 
be, bas hinder'd him from doing that service to ye Publick w eh he was 
inclin'd to, & vas expected from him. Something of his Character may 
3o be known from a Pamphlett vrit by ye said ]3octor in ]3efence of the 
Crate of Penrith in ansver to another Pamphlett writ by Mr. Wm. 
Pearson archdeacon of Nottingham. -- John Norris first of Exon. Cll. 
afterw d Fellow of All Souls, had always the Caracter of an ingenious, 
sober and industrious Man. Having an inclination to a married life in 
a little time he quitted his Fellowship for a very small Living in ye 
]giocess of Sature. He has writ a great Number of Books, the fil-St 
of them I think were a Translation of (Warren's) Amoris Effigies, 
Hierocles's Comm. upon Pythagoras's Golden Verses, a Piece in Latin 
against Reprobation & Predestination, Miscellanies pr. at ye Theatre, a 
40 Sermon preach'd at Sg. Peter's in Lent. One Piece was about Penal 
Laws obliging, notwithstanding ye Act of Toleration. (Ask Dr. Charlett.)

given Dr. Hudson so much trouble about Dr. Charleton's executrix. Will

Since my return I bave read over the Excellent little Book of worship- 
ing towards ye Altar, and find, that it was written before ye Great Rebel- 
lion, as is very probable, when that controversy, and others about ye 
Christian Altar were on foot, about I637. I bave not y book by me, and 
so cannot refer to ye Pages, where y Notes of ye rime are when it was 
written. I ana resolved to print it with a Preface, and I think another 
Edition of it will be seasonable at a rime. when so many of the Clergy forger 
/ antient notion of Priest, Sacrifice, and Altar, which are all there treated 
of with much perspicuity, and strength of Reasoning, and when the antient 
3o devout Custom of worshiping towards y H. Altar is quite laid aside in some 
Cathedrals, and Colleges, and begins to be disused in others, and as I hear, in 
another place, w  I shall not naine. I formerly read above 30 years ago a 
little tract in Latin de Adoratione versus Altare, by D r. Duncon, one yt 
followed K. Ch. l I. in his Exile, and could I get it, I would print it with yO 
other. \Vherefore I pray you to inquire after it in Oxon, and if you meet 
with it procure it for me. D r. Brevint's Christian Sacrament and Sacrifice 
in 6 °. was printed at yO Theatre in 673. The fairness of yO Letter makes 
me think it was printed by the Universit¥, or it may be only by D r. Fell: 
if by the University, I desire to know whether they will give leave it may be 
40 re-printed here ; for in my answer to y Rights I wished it might be printed 
again, if not I wish the¥ would give it another Edition themselves. Since I 
returned home I met with another Excellent little Book in 2 ° entitled / 
Modest 2leafor the Clergy, London 677. I never saw it, nor heard of it 
before ; if you can learn, who was the author  I should be glad to know his 
Naine. A second Edition of it with a Preface suitable to these rimes, 
wherein yç Clergy and Priesthood have so many, as it's sworn Enemies» 
would be very seasonable.

these Matters freely told them what he knew was due to ye Hall, and 
gave in a note to ye Principal Mr. Pearson yt he might secure ye Books 
'till the Hall was satisfy'd. But this is little minded ; which indeed ought 
hOt to be xvonder'd at, when they play such tricks in other cases, and 
particularly with respect to a debt they pretend Dr. AIill ow'd the Coll. 
ever since he was Bursar, of between twenty and thirty libs, for which 
they stopt 24 of his Testaments which were distributed amongst yo 
Fellows: which is a most shamefull, scandalous Act, D r. Mill haveing 
some rime since given ye Coll. fifty libs. which if he ow'd them anything 
,o (as I bave been told he did not) was without doubt design'd as a Paymt, 
xvith an Addition for their staying so long. D r. Mill us'd allways to say 
yt he design'd ),t ye Publick Library should have all ye Books, whether 
lXIS or printed, yt were wanting out of his Study ; but Langhorne bas 
had no regard to this, which was certainly his Will, but let ye MS Papers

chaplain to the English Factory at Smyrna, a venerable copy of these anciênt 
liturgic books, and suggested that that gentleman, now beneficed in Dorset- 
shire, might have brought the book home with him. The Bishop addressêd to 
him for the loan of it and he readily communicated it : ' w eh hee shewed mee 
upon my next going to Christ Church, where I usually went once a week by 
his kind & obliging desire & order to dine with him.' The design of publish- 
ing this and many other works bêcame abortive by his death. Now, is No. 38

In ye year x7o6 Sept. when ye Race was at Woodstock & Port 
Meadow, the Duke of Richinond ,«th one M r. May and his Chaplain, 
lI r. Bradley of St. Mary Hall, after two of ye Clock in the afternoon caine 
to ye Publ. Library. M r. Bradley brought thein to D r. Hudson, who re- 
ceived thein with all due Civility, and shew'd thein the Curiosities of yt 
Place : afier w eh yÇ Duke leaving ye Library Mr. ]3radley caine to ye D r. 
inviting hiin to dine w h ye Duke that afternoon at St. Mary Hall in ye 
Coininon Rooin, where M r. Bradley had provided a dish or two of Meat 
for Entertaininent. The D r. at ye earnest Request of M r. ]3radley went 
o to St. Mary Hall, where he found the Duke, 1,I r. l,Iay, Principal Wyat 8: 
M r. Bradley. Soon after his going thither ye Dinner caine in. At Dinner 
tiine and afterwards the chiefMatter of Discourse was ab  ye Duke's pro- 
fessing hiinself to be a Whigg, his charging ye University in general wh 
Jacobifisin, and his being for Carter against St. John Walters in ye City 
]Slection. The Duke was oppos'd by ye Dr. in all ye said particulars & 
perhaps not without soine sharpness & Reflection. But for all that ye 
Coinpany seein'd to part very good Friends, & the duke express'd hiin- 
sclf wel] pleas'd with ye Coinpany & Entertaininent ; so y no one was 
apprehensive of any Mischief likely to follow froIn it. Yet in the follow- 
uo ing year 1707 in Michaelinass Terin there was a letter coininunicated to 
D r. Hudson froin D r. Sinalrich, writ to a third person, wherein 'twas said y 
he had heard it from a Reverend Prelate y ye said D r. H. in St. Mary 
Hall in Coinpany of the Duke of Richin. &c. should begin a Health to 
ye Prince of Wa]es, & refuse to drink another to ye Protestant succession. 
Upon W ch the Dr. writ to D r. SmaMch a full Acct of the whole Marrer as 
above related, particular]y shewing how iinprobable it was that he should 
begin such a health, when his design was to vindicate ye university froin 
ye Charge of Jacobitism. M r. Wyat who was in Coinpany at ye Bottoin 
of ye Letter writ to D r. Sinalridge attested ye Truth of every particular, 
3o and that he heard no such Health propos'd in Coinpany. Moreover he 
writ to Mr. Bradley ab this Marrer, who gave hiin a fait answer yt he 
knew of no such thing, and wonder'd what should be ye occasion of such 
a Report. Yet it has been spoke particularly by ye Duke of Marlborough 
at his own Table & in several other publick Places, yt the D r. drank such

I receiv'd your's, and arn hOt much surpris'd at ye Resentment you express 
in it. To be sure there have been very false representations ruade of this 
Matter in which your Kinsman is unhappily concern'd ; but a wise man knows 
how to make allowances in things of this nature, and an honest man will sus- 
pend his censure 'till he has fully inform'd himself. I know no necessity I lye 
5o under of making a Dcfence unless I were before a competent Judge : But 
because one of your Qere's is, For what your Cousin was expell'd ? (as you 

D ee. 9.3.] VOLU.I[E X [, P.dG.E.5" 99-113. 83 
affect to call iii I shall give you this short answer. It was because we found 
it inapossible for us to enjoy any quiet in the College, while he continu'd with 
us. When a person takes a particular Delight in disturbing the Peace of the 
Society he lives in, and when no adnaonitions will prevail with hina to return 
to a more sober Behaviour; when he demonstrates a Resolution to persevere 
in that Humour of affronting his Governours without any Provocation, I think 
the Removal of such aone (be his Qpalitie what it will) absohttely necessary : 
I ana certain no Society that pretends to any Governanent will bear what we 
have born. You ask what Immorality he was guilty of? If by Immorality 
you mean Drinking, "Vhoring, or Swearing, I charge him with none of those ; o 
but l charge him with being disobedient and insulting and very abusive to the 
Society ; which I think are Inanaoralities with a "Vitness. 
This young Gentleman was one that I think the College was naore than or- 
dinary civil to ; & his Carriage 'till of late I thought deserv'd such Treatnaent : 
But about half a Year since or sonaething more he appear'd strangely alter'd ; 
and we vere all anaaz'd to find hina so imbitter'd against the College as he has 
shown himself ever since upon all occasions I ara sure without any just grounds : 
his sowr'd humour work'd so high as hot only to show a constant uneasiness 
himself & to infect others with prejudices against the College as if they were 
cheated and abus'd, but to revile us ail publickly in the Hall, to reflect severely o 
upon me in particular several rimes, for no just reason I ana satisfied; and 
pursuing this hunaonr so constantly, that the Fellows whenever they went into 
the Hall expected of course to be affrouted by his means : and to give yon one 
Instance in which his disobedience vill sufficiently appear. "Vhen the Dean 
put ye usual Sconce for missing Prayers upon his Naine, he struck it off in 
Defiance which you know is flying in the Face of the Government of the Col- 
lege; and these things we pass'd by in hopes he would in rime be prevail'd 
upon to behave himself like a Gentleman. to which end he had several tinaes 
admonitions frona nayself and others and by his Tutour ; but he weut on and 
grew still naore insulting. AI length to crown the rest, he naade a publick 30 
Disturbance in the Chapell, while Divinity Disputations were perform'd, he 
with some others setting up a loud Laugh (an unheard of Insolence) to affront 
the Vice-President in the Execution of his Office ; and to show what we were 
to expect for the future, he own'd the Evening after this publick Insolence in 
the Chapell that he canae there with prenaeditated Designs to affront ye Vice- 
President, and that he would affront hina whenever he met hina. I naust do 
the Vice-President Justice--That when he (before nae and ye other Officers) 
denaanded of lI t. Knollys, whether he had done any thing to disoblige him, he 
had hot any thing to charge hina with. Now if these things are to be born, 
and we must tanaely sit down under publick affronts; we must even give up 4 ° 
ail, and never pretend to execute any authority again ; which will be the most 
effectual way to sink the College : for I can't think any Gentlemen will ven- 
ture their Sons here, when we bave naade ourselves unable to govern thena. 
Your former Kindness in recommending Persons to the College (which you 
seem now to repent of) we are really to own with Thankfullness, because no 
doubt you design'd a Benefit to the College by it; but whether such Recom- 
mendations prove advantagious or not is to be estinaated from the Behaviour 
of the Persons reconanaended. A young iIan of a turbulent, nautinous Tena- 
per, that is hot only ungovernable hinaself but makes it his business to infect 
others, and infuse groundless prejudices against the Society, which generally 5 ° 
are greedily inabrac'd by Young iIen, and usually propagated 'till 'ris beyond 
the power of any sober Man to stop them, may be really an inestimable damage 
to such a Society as ours. It may be better tbr us to loose 5 ]ib. than have 
the company of one so prejudic'd and sowr'd against us. I know hot what 
satisfaction this naay give you or any prejudic'd person; I ana very well satis- 
fi'd myselt" in this naatter, as having done nothing but what the young Gentle- 
man himself by his incurable behaviour naade necessary tobe done. No man 
I hope will think us so void of sense as to disoblige any Gentleman out of 
G 2 

choice without an absolute necessity. We aim'd at nothing but quiet ; if we 
could have had it with M r. Knollys his Company, he had been always very 
welcome fo us. If the account of the Battles here added could have been had 
sooner, you had heard from me by yesterday's Post. You need hot fear any 
Violence tobe offer'd fo your Kinsman's Chamber. You shall have no reason 
to expect anything but what is civil from us, particularly from, 
Your respectfull servant,

S r, 
I rec'd the favour of your's by which I perceive you will hot permit me 
(because you say I only affect) fo account my Kinsman a person expell'd. 
And since the particulars you mention in your letter are such as for which I 
presume your Justice would hot inflict such a Punishment on him, especially 
when you have hot been so severe on others, who, as you well observe were 
guilty of the saine faults ; I hope you will so far gratify me as fo let me know, 
whether he be really expell'd or no, whereby you will oblige

Two Testimonies from the College in behalf of ye said ][r. Knollys : 
Vhereas the Reverend ,V m. Dobson D r. of Divinity, and President of 
Trinity Collegê in Oxofi, on Monday the 27 th of October, 7o7. did actually 
expell Henry Knollys, Esq r. Fellow-Commoner of yO s d College, and strike 
his Naine out of the Book, that is kept for Registring the Names of the Ment- 
bers of that Society : 
Now least the s d Henry Knollys, Esq r. should surfer in his Reputation, by 
being thought to bave been unwilling or uncapable of performing the publick 
Exercises of the said College ; We whose Names are underwritten, and we who 
3o bave been the publick Lecturers of the said College from very near the rime of 
the admission of the said Henry Knollys into the said College, (which is now 
near four years since) do by these Presents declare, that he has ail along re- 
gularly and decently perform'd the Exercises, that are appointed Gentlemen 
of his Gown : 
Having moreover acquitted himself with Reputation by constantly attending 
the Greek Lecture for one whole year, altho' that is an Exercise which bas 
hot in our Remembrance been perform'd by or ever as far as we bave been 
inform'd requir'd of Fellow-Commoners. 
In V¢itness xvhereof as far as in each Year he has been Auditor to one or 
4o more of us, we set our Hands.

XVhereas the Reverend XV m. Dobson, D r. of Divinity and President of 
Trinity College in Oxon on lXlonday the 27 th of October 7o7. did, as we have 
just reason to believe at yo Instigation of John Barber Clerk reputed one of 
the Fellows of the said College, actually expell Henry Knollys Esq r. Fellow 
Commoner of the said College, and did strike his Name out of the Book, that 
is kept for Registring the Names of the Members of that Society, and ail this 
5o without, xvhat is requir'd by the Statutes of the said College, previous pre- 
caution that we ever heard of to the said Henry Knollys Esqr. or any Notice 
thereof given either to his Tutor, or any of his Relations : 
Now this suddain xvay of Expulsion being the greatest Punishment that the 
said President notwithstanding his pretended arbitrary Power, by which, as 

19ee. 9.3.] VOLU)IlE XVI, PAGES 113-130. 

M r. Knollys informs us, the Presidcnt said he expell'd him, tan inflict, and 
what is appointed by the Statures of the said College to be put in execution 
super crimine Hereseos, Simonioe, Perjurij manifesti, firti notabilis, Rapinoe, 
Homicidij voluntarij, gravis percussionis socij, vel (quod deterius est) ipsius 
Poesidentis : 
Lest any therefore, who should hear of this formal Expulsion of the said 
Henry Knollys Esqr., Should imagin him to be guilty of these or any such like 
Crimes, and he thereby should causelessly surfer in his Reputation ; \Ve, whose 
narnes are hereunto subscrib'd do by these Presents declare, that we could 
never understand, that there was anything alleg'd against hirn at the rime of o 
this Expulsion more than that he laugh'd in the Chapell of the said College at 
thetime of Divinity Disputations, that he kick'd at the Cat of Thomas Hasker, 
Clerk and Burser of the said Coll. which Cat, (as it was said) ran afterwards 
into the Chapeli: and that he behav'd himseif with Incivility to some of the 
Society, but the Persons, Time or Place were hot particularly mention'd to 
him, whereby he was render'd altogether uncapable of rnaking any Excuse for 
And we do hereby farther testify, that the said Henry Knollys all the while 
we bave known him a Member of our Society, where he bas continu'd for 
near four years, in ali which time we have been intimately acquainted, and zo 
frequently conversant with him, bath weii and regularly demean'd himseit; hot 
being known or in the least suspected to be guilty of Cursing, Swearing, 
Lying, or any other prophane Discourse, immoderate Drinking, whoring, or 
any other Vice or Immorality whatsoever ; which is what we are the more con- 
firm'd in, for that the President himself, (as we are inform'd) said soon after 
he had expeii'd him, and bas since given it under his Hand, that he had nothing 
of that Nature to lay to his Charge.

2o he is an eloquent, ingenious Gentleman, an Excellent Divine and of a

To the Bp. of Ely, D r. More. 
M¥ L a, 
I was surpris'd to hear in this Place that your Làship introduc'd M r. Step- 
xo hens * to kiss the Q_ueen's Hands for ye Gr. Professorship at Oxon, who, as the 
Gentlemen of that University say, is by no means qualify'd for that Profes- 
sion ; he haviug neither skill in the Greek Language nor Industry to prosecute 
y study of it. The Oxonians do extremely resent the late Affronts put upon 
'em by ye Court, & do very much blame yO Bps. of your University foi- in- 
teresting themselves in the Promotion of unworthy iX/en to Places in their 
University. They stick hot to say that you endeavour to raise the Reputation 
of Cambridge by sinking that of Oxofi. The Archbp. of Cant. suffers upon yo 
Account of D r. Porter whom impartial Men openly declare to be hot hall so 
well qualify'd for ye Chair as D r. Smalridge. XVho were concern'd in making 
20 Milles Professor I know hot ; but they say he was as meer an Ignoramus in 
Greek as ever pretended to it : and as for M r. Stephens they will hardly allow 
yt he can read it, ail his Studies lying in 5Iodern Poëtry & French Authors. 
If these things be true, my L à, as I fear they are, 'twill be a great discourage- 
ment to Learning in that University, & will perhaps bave a malignant Influence 
upon ours; and when Men that have doue something for y Honour of yo 
University & ye Nation are postpon'd & never regarded, there's little prob- 
ability that y Young Men will pursue their Steps when they find them only 
lead to Poverty & Contempt. Your Làship has had the Character of a 
Patron of Learning; but 'ris to be fear'd that ye Men of Letters will hot allow 
3o it you long, when they are convinc'd you are hot for advancing the Interest 
of it. I had hot presum'd so far as to lay these 5Iatters before you but out of 
Respect to your Làship, to whom I wish all happiness & prosperity, & remain

From ye Grecian Coffee House, 
Lond. Jan. 28. 7o. 
By chance I met with one of your Proposais, with w eh I was extremely 
pleas'd, being sensible how much it is for y Honour of our University to have 
so learn'd a Professor in it. I show'd your Proposais the next day to some 
Oxonians who did approve of 'ena & applaud your design, & wish'd they could 
be so happy in their University. This surpris'd me a little, & I ask'd 'em the 
meaning of it. To weh they reply'd that their Greek Professorship within the o 
Compass of one year had been dispos'd off to two Persons by no means quali- 
fy'd for it. For after the death of D t'. Hody a silly, empty pretender to Greek 
crept into the Chair; & now tother da:/'tvas fill'd with one, if it be possible, 
of far meaner Abilities. Upon this we joyntly lamented the decay of Learn- 
ing, & ye little Encouragement yt was given to such as apply'd themselves to 
it. "Ve agreed yt M". Barnes deserv'd some of ye dignitys in ye Church, in- 
finitely better yn ye Haranguing Tribe yt fills them. Upon ye whole mattcr 
we concluded yt every one, who had a regard for Learning, should promote 
such designs, as you, & some few others, are willing to ingage in. "Ve resolve 
to promote your subscriptions as far as possible, tho' we are afraid that you o 
will be a considerable sufferer by y« undertaking. You can never exspect to 
get above 300 Subscribers, & Booksellers will, of course, obstruct what you 
intend. I wish you heartily good success, & liberall encouragement in your

after !Ir. Tully return'd to Oxoîi. and married a beautifull Woman, 
one l,Ir. Witty. While he liv'd in Oxon he us'd nov and then to 
get a turn of preaching before ye University. One of his Serinons 
being very severe against Popery, which is printed, King James caus'd 
him to be suspended from his Preferment in York; which made him 
a bitter Enemy to ye said Prince, and moreover even to l\Ionarchical 
Government it self. Upon ye Revolution, I think, he got a Lectureship 
in New-Castle, and a Living call'd Gateshead near New-Castle. He 
herded with ye Fanetical Tribe of yt Towne, and grew very dissolute xo 
in his Life and Conversation. He has printed two or three other Serinons, 
and a Discourse About ye Government of ye Thought. -- Thomas 
Tully, A.I. of Edm. Hall, Nephew likewise to Principal Tully, became 
Chaplain to Dr. Rainbowe, 13v. of Carlisle, and was preferr'd by him 
to ye Chancellorship of yt Church. He was alvays a Favourer of 
the Whiggish Interest in those Parts, and by the Ld. Lonsdale was 
ruade Chaplain to y lIonga-el King, call'd lVillia»z III «. By this 
means he got a good Living, but his Preferment being very remote 
from London I think he quitted his Chaplainship a little after. He 
bas printed a Sermon upon ye Funeral of ]3p. Rainbow, and added o 
to it an Account of his Life : both trite stuff and mean Performances. --

Exercise before he vent down to y University; but when he came 
there, (as he himself was pleas'd to tell his Friend and Fellow-Student 30 
Dr. Plott,) they would hot let him do his Exercise, but insisted upon 
having his lIoney instead of it. Which Dr. Tyson took so very iii

Goodwin the Leyden Dr. of Physick & Arehdeacon of Oxon, Hynde of

given a most dull, empty Specimen lately) & some others ; but when the

Whiggs eould possibly make, & the Sly tricks of getting rotes by Proxy 
(a thing wda has hOt been praetis'd before in this place for a great many 
years) & the threats of ruining some lIen if they did not close wtla them, 
these devilish People have been baffled, and Porter has plainly diseover'd 2o 
himself to be a poor sill, tool, of an ambitious coneeited retaper, & fit to 
be rank'd only wth lIulles, &c. -- I have formerly seen in the Bodlejan 
Library a Book in which there is a note that lIulles signifies nchulo, nr'us 
&e. And the English word mole is the salue. So likewise in Saxon. 
And lIr. Llhuyd tells me that they have in one part of Wales the word 
maullish, which he says is a silly, insignificant, craz'd fellow.

gospel. His sermon (to speak without any manner of prejudiee or par- 
tiality) was worse, if possible, than his late Inaugural Speech. He pro- 
pos'd to show what light the Gentiles had of a thture state; what the Jews 
had of it & how far their knowledge in this particular exceeded that of the 
Heathens, & lastly how our Saviour had clear'd this point & remov'd ali 
the doubts that were entertain'd about it by p]ainly revealing to us that 
there was hot only to be a future state of Rewards and Punishments but 30 
that this state shall be Eternal. But alass ! in this Discourse, he show'd 
nothing either of Learning or parts. It had been donc by Arch'v. Tillot- 
son and others to far greater Advantage both in respect of Style and 
argument. Besides after a dr)', heavy Account he made no manner of 
Application. So that I eannot imagine wt the party can say in his vindi- 
cation, or wt Account Admiral Churchill (Brother to ye Duke of Marl- 
borough) & some others of the party present at the preaching this 
Se/non can alledge in his Commendation, or how they can with modesty 
any longer commend him who cannot upon a common Topick make a 
better Discourse than any the meanest & youngest Master of Arts in 40

« lI r. HEARI--This day I reccived your letter : xv eh I shall answer affer I 
have given you ashort acc t of my ramblês. That morning I left Oxofi twas my 
luck to meet w th Jn Busby at home, xxho entcrtain'd me very handsomely, & 
oblig'd me to pass yt day w th him & y fait Ladys at his house. Early ye next 
morning I ruade for Bedford : w eh is but a very mean place, & as I fancy much 
short of v t it bas been formerly. After dinner I sett out tbr Cambridge : & 
yo heat of yo weather making me call at a little town in yO edge of yt County 
I mett w tu such incomparable liquour, as would have stopt you from reachi,g 
yO University that night. In yO strength of it I gott sale to Cambridge : & 
noe sooner was a]ighted, but Joshuah came bouncing upon me ; his ]odgings 
being next door to my Inn. A little after I had Professor Sykes, Davis & 
Crownfield : who XX "th O ur merrv Greek tosst a bottle & debated some matter 
ab t books & printing. The mrning following I went to yr press : w eh is a 
pretty, large, & lightsome room: xx th another over it, very convenient for 
drying yO sheets. Besides our Friend's Homer. they are a going on W TM Hier- 
ocles & a piece of Tully : w eh will be beautyfull books, & I believe well donc. 
Affer I had subscrib'd for Cole's map & given ym a little money to drink, I 
visited two or three friends & dispatch'd yo little business I had : & then 
I waited on D r. Bentley, who received me w TM a sort of haughty civility, such 
as it seems is natural to him. I talkt a little w th him ab t Josephus & yr Col- 
lege-chappell (xv eh is the statelyest & finest I ever saw) & then w th Professor 
Sykes call'd upon John Laughton. He did hot so much as invite me either 
to eat or drink w tu him ; w eh he might bave donc wthout being in danger of my 
accepting his offert: neither could he be prevail'd with to take a single copy 
of Livy. Leaving this poor motoEal, xve call'd on Joshuah, who went w TM US in 
his Jerkin to ye Tavern. Here we had a good dinner yt cost us nothing & 
excellent wine at 2o « a bott]e. "xVe sent for Geoponic Needham, & x« as 
merry both here & at my Inn in y evening as you can well imagin. By four 
in yO morning I mounted Ball & jogg'd on to Thetford : w cla is nothing but yO 
poor scantling of an ancient spatious town, as one may conjecture from y 
ruines of a castle & some churches. In ye evening I gott to Norwich, a large 
& beautyfull City, at yt time in ail its glory. After a little refreshm t I call'd 
on y Chancellor, & had a great deal of discourse w tu him on various matters. 
I did hot forgett to remind him of Antony à \Vood : & ara in hopes of pre- 
vailing w th him, to put his book into our hands. He show'd me his copy of 
Leland, & another in Bales's own hand, w th several thin in it, hot to be 
found in o r book, the QLeens-men print from : whether he had a better copy 
of Leland, or has interpolated it, I know hot. In ye morning, I waited on yO 
B» & y Dean, who courteously received me, & invited me to dine w tia him. 
But this I declind, being willing to reach Linn yt night, w ela I hil'd of, yO

Instructions I have reapcd ff'oto your excellent books but the sense of rny 
inabilities joyned xvith the desire of passing rny Life in obscuritie hath hitherto

trespassed on rnodesty first by wreatig to lI r. Gaderer md then to another, 
sorne weak exceptions agent that your accurate and usefull notion conc. y

self had been fi'eed of no litle inward disquiet since I reckoned rnyself the 
unluckie occasion of at least accessarie to y bad and unjust treatrnent you 
rnett xvith. Your wreatings were to me so convictive that I could hot but 
practise upon thern, yea and perswade ail on whom I could have influence to 
doe the like: but then that thought (though only revived by you) becarne ane 
handle to such as raised cavills agafist your principles, and I being intent to 
have that sturnbling block rernoved therefore wrat once and again. Hoxvex'er 
as I ask your pardon for the injnries done you through rny unadvisednes and 
rnisunderstanding: as I entreat your favour which to rnee is more valuable 
than that of any other rnortall : so I cornfort rnyself with the hope of obtain- 
ing both frorn one of your goodnes and generositie. I arn verie sensible of tbe 
honor and kindness you have done mee in sending first a copy of the Epistolary 
Discourse and uow of late your other two on that subject of the distinction 
betwixt Soul and Spirit. At the first reading of the premonition to ye Episto-

fied to you by that Freind to whom I wrote the second Letter. The pre- 
liminarie Defence I did read long agoe with great satisfaction: but I being 
casuallie in the House of a worthy Gentleman who owns himself your disciple 
when your books came to my hands he snatch'd the just Defence from mee, so 
that as yet I bave hot read it, he liveing in another County, and hot intending 
(as heewrites mee) to restore the book till the next week. Our poor Church 
suffereth hot so much by the loss of ber secular Interests as by the Enemies 
shee hath .as a part of y Church Catholick. It is obvious that the Presbi- 
terian consider ber as it's rival & therefore wisheth and endeavoureth ber 
utter extinction. The Libertin insults her more than ever since he hath been 
firnisht with weapons ri'oto the book of Rights &c. though 'tis hoped that 
contagion shall be stop't partlie by the answers that are ruade to it, partlie 
through the aversion which men bave to it because of the oblique aspect 
it hath on Christianitie it self. The pious people who follow lXI. Bourignion 
seem to maintain a necessarie connexion betwixt holienes and everlasting and 
indefective happines and then the consequences to the disadvantage of the 
visible kingdom of Jesus are verie obvious. The generalitie of our Laicks are 
so worn out of all principles by the repeated altcrationes made by secular 
powers that they incline tamelie to strike in with any thing which bath the 
sanction of a Law, and in the mean tym Irreligion, impietie and Lukewarmnes 2o 
abonnd. This lamentable state of things bath moved some serious persons 
betwixt whom &mee there is a Christian Friendship to propose that I should 
draw up a short and plain account of Christian and Church-principles accom- 
modated to the capacitie and genius of our Scots Laicks : but the too good 
reason I have to distrust my own inabilities (even thotlgh a presbiter) forbids 
to venture on sucb ane undertakeing, which if done amiss may prove rather 
hurtfull than usefull to the publick. Nevertheless your advice and direction in 
this matter is humblie and earnestlie craved, to which you may let fall one 
hour of your tym of leisure and send it so as that I may hot be seen in it to

that 'tw very hard to distinguish whether the book was written or printed. 
My Father valu'd the Book ve much, not only because it was written by his

appear whether 'twas ye saine with this of [ongolit«s, or that of Aldus, or 
whether 'twas different from either. 'Tis certain froln ye said Eistlcs

dying before he could accomplish what he had resolved upon, some years

ing him at Paris, and D r. Edward 17o'nard sent him a specimen for that 
Intent : but what hinder'd him is uncertain, lXlr. Scld«n has given us two 2o 
or three Fragments in the 13ooks mention'd above, and so has Salmasius 
in his Book de aunis climactericis; and since hat 1I r. JDodzodl has 
publish'd an extract out of him in his ibislolary Discourse conc.y* Immor- 
laldy ofy  Soul. And I think some other Learned Mon bave mention'd 
him as an Author worth publishing, as he most certainly is, if at ye saine 
rime Julius Firmicus be printed with him. Immediately af ter ye Note 
above mention'd conc. ye sure of money Zongoh?«s gave for having 
it transcrib'd is added an Explication of ye several Notes ruade

by l?ufresne in his Greek Glossary. iX[r. ,%hh'n & others have vary'd 3 o 
about ye time when this Author liv'd ; but it appears from divers notes in 
him yt he liv'd after the tilne of Anlom'm«s. He mentions ItMiclions in 
some places, the use of weh did not begin "till about ye time of «][«xentius. 
There is another note v eh brings him as low as S«verus, he mentioning a

20 REVEREND SIR,--Three or four Days since I rec d. your Letter by lXU. Hayes, 
in which you have given an ample Specimen of your great Skill in the Choro- 
gra?hical Parts of M r. Camden'a Britannia. By yr leave, I will .take effectual 
care that it shall be communicated to D . Gibson, who, I doubt hot, will be 
very cautious that none of the lIistakes you bave observ'd, pass uncorrected 
in his designed New Edition. I agree with you that 'twill be very proper for 
him to procure an exact Accourir of the Recovery of the Ground which you 
mention in the River Humbre. Several Years since I collected divers His- 
torical Relations of Places that have been gain'd from Vater, which I did 
only by way of Exercise, and the better to imprint them in my Memory. 
3o I remember that amongst the rest I observ'd that Sundry Royal Commissions 
had been formerly issu'd not only for repairing the Banks and Sewers upon 
the Humbre, but also for regaining such Lands as had been lost by continual 
overflowing ; of ail which S r Villiam Dugdale bas publish'd an exact Account 
in his History of Imbanking and Drayning : and there is no question but had 
yo Accidents you mention happen'd before y Publication of that Vork he 
would bave added these to the other Instances he bas there given. 
I ara int;.rely of Sç "xVilliam Dugdale's opinion that the Flints he tells us to 
be found at Oldbury are British Axes. There have been of them found 
at other places, & the other Instruments of Flint, as their Arrow and Spear 
4o Heads, sulticiently show that they ruade use of Flint, the way of working in 
Iron being quite unknown to them. It must indeed be granted that the 
Romans us'd such Flints too for Weapons, and 'twas 1¥om them that y 
Britains learn'd the Art of working them: yet for ail that I ara inclin'd 
to think that most if hot ail these round in this Isle are British, the Romans 
having quantity of Iron & being well skill'd in working of it: whereas the 
Britains were altogether Ignorant in this Art, & if they had been skill'd they 
had such an inconsiderable Oantity of Iron that they turn'd it into money as 
the most scarce & pretious Commodity they had. I bave seen of their Arrow

Heads my self, we having several of them in our Repositories. They are 
frequently round in the North Parts of England, but more commonly in Scot- 
land, especially near Aberdeene, where they are call'd Flf-Arrows, & they 
think that they drop from the Clouds. We have an Iron Ax (which was 
certainly Roman) ruade exactly in yO form of these Flint ones, & 'twas 
fastened fo an Helve in yo saine manner as the Indians use at this day, who 
bave likewise Flint-Axes, several of which are lodg'd in M r. Ashmole's 
Museum. But now tho' I agree with S r. XVilliam Dugdale, that these Instru- 
ments found at Oldbury are British, yet you have given me sufficient proof 
that here are Flints near this place, & that therefore he (as well as his io 
Transcriber in ye Additions to Camden) must be mistaken in asserting that 
there is no Flint in this part of the Country, nor cvBhln more than XL. toiles from 
hence. I have transcrib'd his very words, because you seem'd to doubt whether 
the Author of the Additions had cited him fairly. Now these Axes fo,md so 
near in some measure prove that 'twas a place of great Antiquity ; but this 
appears most of ail from the Rampires still remaining, & ïrom the Naine OId- 
burie, Aldbury or Ealdburie, which I take to be yO saine in signification with 
Alchester in Oxïordshire. I know indeed yt the Anonymous Author of the 
History of AIIchester, at yO End of D . Kennett's Parochial Antiquities, 
deduces the Naine from Allectus, whom he makes the Founder of it ; but hot o 
to observe that his whole History is built upon Conjecture, that 'ris very 
injudiciously compil'd & that there is no Foundation in any antient writer y 
Allectus built the place, 'tis certainly more agreeable to the Rules of Etymo- 
logy to make it ye saine in signification with Aldechester, Aldceaster, 
or Ealdceaster, of which opinion was also M*'. Camden. If we adinitt of this 
the Antiquity of yo Place may be carried higher than Carausius ; but I shall 
hot insist upon that, as being of little or no moment in yo present case. 
What you write concerning one Francis Harris, aged 8o years, some odd 
,weeks  daies, is very remarkable & ought to be enquir'd into. I wish ail 
Instances of this Nature in Britain were collected and rang'd together, & as 3o 
distinct Relations, as possible, publish'd of the several occupations of yO 
Persons, their Constitution of Body, the particular methods they observ'd as 
to Eating & Drinking. Exercise, &c. This has been done as to Thomas Part 
by ML Taylor the Water-Poët, & others. And we have also Accounts of 
others that were very aged, in yO Philosophical Transactions, D r. Plot's 
natural Historie of Oxon & Stalïordshires, & several other Books, amongst 
which must hot be forgotten the L« Bacon's History of Lire & Death, which 
is only a specimen of a compleat work. Anti now you have given me occasion 
to speak of longliv'd persons, I cannot but mention to you w t perhaps you 
may hot have observ'd conc. two very late Instances of this kind. The first 4 ° 
is inserted in yO ,Mercure Galant for January ,7o8, where we are told of two 
Letters, one written to yO French King & the other to a Great Lady of yO 
Court, both by y Marquiss of Aucaze, a Gentleman of Auvergne, born about 
y" year 598. These Letters were writt by his own Hand, wtout yO Help of 
Spectacles. His Father liv'd to yo Age of 98, & his Mother to 9 ; so that 
allthree make about 3oo years. The second Instance, which is more strange, 
is of one Timothy Blanche, a Merchant in y, 8outh west Parts of France, who 
tho' aged one Hundred and seventeen years & three months, had married 
a Girl of eighteen, & that hi» said young spouse was suppos'd to be w TM child 
by him at yO writing of ye Letter in which we have this Account, a Fragment 5o 
of which is publish'd in one of yO lIonthly lIiscellanies. 
It seems to me certain yt the Banks you took notice of in Yorkshire for 
several mlles together, are Reliques of some of y" Roman ways ; but whether 
they are part of yO Greater ways, or only Branches of them, is very doubtfull, 
ail Authors who have written of yO Tracts of those principal ways giving us 
different Accounts of them, & being inclin'd fo various Opinions according to 
ye observations they bave either ruade themselves or rec à. from others. 
Wthout doubt D'. Gibson may procure a sight of D r. Johnston's large collec-

tions, in which I suppose are amass'd together wtever he met w th relating to 
yO antiquities of Yorkshire ; but 'ris pity the D r. had not had more Regard to 
ye Benefit of Posterity, & took care to write his Papers in such a Hand as 
naight be read by others besides himself. I ara assur'd from one that was his 
acquaintance that he us'd a particular cypher for expedition, & that even when 
• he did hot use characters, his hand at best was very indistinct. 
Your observation that x e nanles of divers places in England are Appellatives 
is very just and true, and ] could add a great number of Instances to those you 
bave brought if I were hot highly sensible that you are particularly acquainted 
o with this as well as with other Ctll-iOllS Parts of Learning. I shall however 
off'er a few, hot yt I think I can give you any Information, but purely that I 
may be directed if 1 happen to committ any mistake hot only from your self, 
but those other two excellent Judges, whose conversation you have the Happi- 
ness now to enjoy, lXI r. Cherry and lXl '. Dodwell. [l'argra,e, (near Henly 
upon Tbamez) call'd in y old Valor Bcncficiorum ruade in y rime of Edw.  t. 
II'engra,e, (by an error of the Transcriber) I take to be y saine with Hér i.e. 
ll'ar or Man, and Grafa grave or place of Burial. Nor is it at ail unlikely that 
hereabouts might bave been a considcrable Battle in y Saxon rimes when we 
know sevcral Actions happen'd in y Adjacent parts ; and perhaps a great 
2o number might afterwards be buried in this place, ll7n_field near \Vindsor, so 
call'd perhaps from a Battle formerly fought here, /4"/n signifying in Saxon 
Battle, & always vhcn prçtix'd to any Towns naine is to be so interpreted. 
Nor should 1 bave anv reason to doubt of this Derivation did I hot find in ye old 
Valor Beneficiorum hat 'ris writt lf:vnekes.[eld; by which it should seem that 
either some general call'd \Vyncke obtain'd a victory here, or else that he was 
y Chief Gentlcman that had any Title to y Lands of this Place. 'Tis also 
call'd \Vinckfeld in ye old Register of Abbingdon, in ye Fragments publish'd 
from it in ye Monasticon Anglicanum, the Monks of which place had of ancient 
rime a Right to a great Share of y XVood in this Parish, & 'twas confirm'd to 
30 ym by ye Conqueror. IFaltbam, in Saxon IIClt-bam, i.e. a woody village, 
Seat, or Habitation. There are several of these in England, & most of them 
are distinguish'd by some word added to them, while Waltham near to ye Place 
where you now are is call'd in the old Valor Beneficiormn and other antient 
evidences Abbot's \Valtham. I believe \Vhite is a late Addition, upon 
Account that some considerable man perhaps of yt naine was either a Bene- 
factor to yO Church, or was eminent here upon some other Account. Wooley 
in the said parish of VChite or rather Abbot's \Valtham, I think is the saine 
with l/Ftdfez-lea (we turning the Saxon lea into ley) i.e. a place of woh'es. 
'Tis hot at all unlikely that this place was antiently much infested with them, 
4 ° especially if we consider that the woods were here as well as in ail these Chil- 
terri Parts far thicker than they are at present & were a Refuge for Robbers 
(as well as for wild Beastsl which was the reason that the Mannor of Flamstede 
was given by Leofstan Abbot of S t. Albans to a certain valiant souldier call'd 
Thurnoth with this condition that he should in lieu of it take effectual 
iXlethods to bave most of y woods cut down, & the Robbers dispers'd which 
accordingly he carefully perform'd. This is related in the Appendix of D . 
XVatts's accurate edition of Matthew Paris ; but I do hot remember to havé 
tbund it in any other publish'd Author. Shottesbrooke, or as others write it 
Shattesbroocke, where you now reside, may possibly corne from Sceat a corner, 
5o & Broca or Brooke, as being in y corner of a Brook ; or else it may be so 
call'd from the Churche's spire steeple Ijust as Shaftsbury was according to 
M '. Camden) the Saxons calling such figures Sbaftz. 
iXlotstone in ye Isle of Wight so call'd from a certain great stone hot far 
from the Place, which is suppos'd to bave been a Monument erected for some 
Noble iXIan there buried by the Romans. This conjecture is the more 
probable because about sixty yards from the stone are some Reliques of an old 
Castle. Now ye stone being call'd lXlortis-stone upon Acc t of the Great 
Person there buried» the saine naine was given to ye adjoyning Town ; and 'tis

call'd by that Naine in old Leases, if we maycredit some MSk Notes of an Anony- 
mous Author now in ny Hands. This naine Mortis-stone partly by corruption 
of speech, & partly by contraction, was at length turn'd into Motstone, &'tis 
now so pronounc'd. Bath in Somersetshire, so call'd (as ail know) from the 
use of the waters. Iu ye Saxon chronicle we meet w it thus written, Ba, 
Ba6e, Ba6an and Ba'an-cester (whence Badecestre in Henry Huntingdon, the 
Saxon 6 being, by an easy change, turn'd into d.) v el answers to yO Present 
naine. In y saine Book 'tis call'd Icemannes-ceastre (or as another copy has 
it Acemannes-beri i.e. a City for Reception of diseas'd & sick persons. 
And now I have instanc'd in Bath, I shall mention a Place about a toile o 
northwest of it, (which shall be the last Instance I will now trouble you with) 
call'd Walcot. \Val in Saxon signifies a diseas'd or sick person, & cor, cote or 
coat an House or Habitation. So that I believe that, notwUstandiug it be 
now discontinu'd, this Place was forlnerly ruade use of for Reception of those « 
that were most distemper'd, & that ail Accommodations for yt End were here 
provided for them, on purpose to prevent |nfection at y Bath, if they should 
be allow'd the Privilege of living there. Perhaps upon Increase of the City of 
Bath the custom might cease. And as it was imploy'd to this use in y Saxon 
rimes, so I believe it was so long before. From the Inscriptions round here 
& publish'd by M". Camden, & from others round since his rime, it seems to o 
have been of note in yo rime of the Romans. Some make the Fosse way to 
have pass'd thro' it ; but of that we are uncertain. A little while since was a 
Roman Monument round here, on w oh is an Inscription, which being eom- 
munieated to me by M". Halley, our Savilian Professor of Astronomy, I shall 
transcribe it, on purpose that I nay bave not only yo,lr own but IXI . Cherry's

When the last hnpression of the Lord Clarendon's History in folio was 
almost finish'd, I told one of the Compositors that he should hOt begin to 
print the Index (which I drew up)'till he had receiv'd my Corrections. 
When the History was compos'd the said Compositor came to me, and 
desir'd that I would deliver him my Copy as corrected by me. I told him 
that I would deliver it as soon as I had any Orders from the Vice-Chan- 
ce]lor. Upon which he told me that 'twas a thing of no concern to the 
Vice-Ch. but said I must write up to London to lI r. Baskett who had the 
whole charge of the impression. I vrit up fo lXIr. ]]askett, but receiv'd 
4 ° hot the least Answer. Some rime after the Vice-Chancellor comeing to 
Town, the Compositor waited upon him, & told him that I had ruade 
severall Çorrections in the Index weh he staid for in order to compleat the 
Work. The Vice-Chancellor bid him corne to me, in his naine, for the 
said Corrections ; which accordingly I deliver'd. When a sheet was com- 
pos'd he brought it to me to correct. I told him, that 1I r. Terry had 
corrected the Book it self, that lXIr. Hill of Queen's College was the Person 
appointed by the Vice-Chancellor himself to correct the Press for 
university Books, & that therefore I could hOt pretend to correct this 
without express order from the Vice-Chancellor himself. The Compositor 
 Non venale in the saine hand. 

went a second rime to the Vice-Chant. who sent word that I should cor- 
rect the several sheets, & that I should bave due satisfaction for ail my 
pains, it being his intent to propose the Matter to the ])elegates of the 
Press when they met to set a Price upon the 13ook. Accordingly I cor- 
rected every sheet, & about 2 or 3 Months after the Price was set upon ye 
13ook I call'd at lXI fs. Halls, Mr. Thwaites being then with me, for my 
Noney. M fs. Hall told me that the thing was hot so much as men- 
tion'd at ye Meeting of ye ])elegates, at least she had no orders for paying 
any lXIoney on Account either of Corrections to the old or new Index. 
Afterwards I mention'd this with some wonder to M r. Thwaites, who xo 
reply'd that I had given an uncivil answer to lXI r. Vice-Chanc. This I 
should hot bave taken any Notice of had I hOt heard of late fronl a certain 
Person that Mr. Thaites mention'd it anew, as being a reason why I 
shonld be turn'd by a place in ye University weh some Friends of mine of 
great Honesty and Integrity had thought me deserving of (tho' I ara as 
far from so thinking as the most malicious person can think himself). I told 
the whole story to the said person, & added that I thought the Method I 
took was not only out of respect to lXIr: Terry, but to lXI r. Hill who was 
order'd to be corrector by the Vice-Chancellor himself. With this he 
said he was well satisfied, & seem'd to be concern'd that lXIr. Thwaites 20 
should trulnp up this poor, pitifull objection against lne, iii w eh I had been 
not only a sufferer upon account of Misrepresenmtion, but also by the 
Loss of the just due for my Pains, having not rec a. one farthing for the 
said Index ofthe last Impression (hOt to mention the being hot paid for 
correcting the press in the last Impression in 8vo.) to this ])ay. But I 
leave the matter, & arn sorry ]l r. Thwaites should pretend to be my Enemy 
who always seem'd to be my Friend.

The price 5 s. large & 4 s. small. 'Tis in two 8 TM Volumes, & he was 
put upon it by M r. Thwaites, mad was assisted by divers of the Cllege 
besicles, tho' here is hot one new observation in the Book, being done 
purely out of a design of prejudice to M r. Thomas Tanner, A.M. and 
Çhancellor of Norwich, who bout fiffeen years since undertook to 
publish this work of Leland's (which is the only one Ir. Leland 
digested tbr the Press) with large Additions, & a Çontinuation; &,  I 
sav from a Letter shew'd me sometime since, he has been continually 
d rudging at it, no one day escaping without me Improvements. So that 
when M r. Hall put the Book into the Press, it somewhat startled M r. 
Tanner, having had no Letter from him to ask his ave, nor has he so 
much as receiv'd one Line since from him about it, it being gIr. Hall's 
opinion that M r. Tanner ought rather to have written to him. But 
however Mr. Hall, & the rest of Queen's Coll. may brag of the Perfor- 
mance, they are & will be condelnn'd by all men of Ingenuity & sincerity,

he was unxvilling to accept a third. The V.C. says there will be a meeting of 
the Delegates very speedily, and that then order shall be given for the delivery 
of S.'s copies. Cutions S. against entering into any correspondence with the 
editor of Leland, or any other of teen's Coll. hIr. Hall generally condemned 
for hot contrring with Tanner, who writes that he bas spent three rimes more 
noney in procuring materials than he can expect for the copy, and looks on 
hh'. Hall's action as a breach of good manners, especially when there is such 
a vast quantity of unprinted material in Bodley and other libraries, hIr. Hall 
adds nothing of his own; he is a great admirer of Le Clerc. Dr. H. sends

pass several Letters for Degrees. Amongst the test was one for Mr. Charles 
Iteron, above twenty years since of Queeu's College. lle never had any 
Degree ; but being a Gcntleman of Excellent Parts, and of great skill in 
Business, he was taken into Favour by the Bo. of Exon, afterwards Bv. of 
Winchester, Sir Jonathan Trelawny to whom he bas been a sort of o 
Steward, & for his signal service in that office his Lordship has been 
pleas'd to give him two Livings, for holding which he has got the 
Chancellor's Letter for his bcing ruade Dr. of Civil Law. The Vice- 
Chancellor, a sort, sneaking, designing Pcrson, as I have often hinted, 
was (to advance himself, if possible, to a Bvvrick, or Deanery) his Friend in 
the Case ; but the Letter was thrown out by a great Majority, to the great 
Resentment of the Vice-Chancellor, & his Admirers. The saine Fate 
had also another Letter in behalf of one Burrough a Doctor of Law of 
Leyden, who desired he might have the Degree of Bach. of Law conferred 
upon him here, purely, as I have been inform'd from good hands, to 3o 
qualify himself for a good fat Living in England, w ch it seems was 
design'd for him, if the Project (which was carried on also by the 
trimming Vice-Ch.) had taken effect. But we have had sufficient Experi- 
ence of the mischief of such concessions, particularly from Tire Goodwin, 
that unworthy, iIliterate Fellow. 
But notwithstanding this Baulk, the Vice-Chancellor immediately after 
the Denyal sent away to the Chancellor for other Letters, w eh his Grace 
granted, and they were on Tuesday following, being February the first, 
read in a full Convocation at two of the Clock ; but with this Alteration

The Vice-Chancellor having gain'd his point, (by great Application &

respective Societies) on Thursday (Feb. 3) Heron was presented to the 
said Degree of D r. of Laws, but vhout having his Grace propos'd as

under the Emperor was the Magister Peditum Proesentalis & the Magister 
Equitum Proesentalis, who had under them six Military Counts of Pro- 
vinces, & XII. Dukes. Amongst the Counts was the Lount of Britain, & 
ofthe Saxon Coast or the Cornes littoris Saxonici. Amongst the Dukes 
was the Duke of/3ritain. The Count of Britain's Government was in

Design of another Vol. of English Historians, I believe at present 'ris nothing 
else but amusement, he being a h/an of no lndustry, it being common vith him 
to lye abed 'till very near dinner rime, and to drink very freely of the strongest 
liquors. About a Fortnight since I din'd in Qeen's College, and being after- 
ards in the Common-Room with hlr. Thwaites, and only tvo more of the 
Fellows, hlr. Hall's advertisement was mention'd, and they all agreed that it 
should not have been added» they being sure, that he vould never do anything. 


,vthout doubt because it was so in the MS. from whence the first 
Impression was ruade, tbe Mark for the n being wanting in it .... 

Mr. Thwaites at the saine rime condemn'd the latter Part of his Edition of 
Leland, as being neglige»tly done, which he said might have been done much 
botter if he would hav'e condescended to have let bim look over the Sheets, as 
he did of the first Part, which he said was very well corrected, and accuratel¥ 
pcrform'd, tho' I knew the quite contrary, notwithstanding I said nothing.' 
On Saturday was Sennight the title-page of Ignatius was wrought off in order 
tobe sent to London, to have the book published therc. ' Above a Year and 
an half since I was ofl'er'd a Chaplainship of C. C. (without an¥ Sollicitation) b¥ 
the President, who sent one or two of the Fellows to propose it to me, but 
'twas with this Condition that I should keep m¥ Post in the Library with it, the 
Chaplainship itself being hot a maintenance. He farther offer'd that I should 
hot be oblig'd to take the Oath of Abjuration, which was extraordinary kind : 
but Dr. Hudson would hOt consent that I should keep the Library and Chap- 
]ainship togethcr: so I waited upon the President, return'd him my Thanks, 
and told him the Case. He was extremely civil, and wonderfully urgent with 
me to accept it, advising me to propose the Matter to the Curators. I told 
him I was unwilling to do that, well knowing that 'twould exasperate my kind 
Friend Dr. Hudson. Upon which I declin'd it, and took my leave, after I 
had acquai.ted him that I intended the next Vacancy to put up for Superior- 
t3eadle : at hcaring of which he seem'd somcthing concern'd, and plainly told 
me that that Post would be very difficult to get ; yet D r. Huds¢m had as- 
sur'd me to the contrary, he bcing the Person that first propos'd it to me, 
saying that my Prospect was certain, and that for that reason I should hot 
take the Chaplainship. I therefore follov'd his Advice, as likewise I did when 
another Chaplainship at AlI-Souls was soon after offer'd, but with the saine 
Condition that I should hot resign my Place in the Library, which Condition 
when D r. Hudson heard he would hot in the least subtnit to. Upon Prospect 
of M r. Caswell's succeeding Dr. Gregory, Mr. Hackett formerly Gentleman 
Commoner of Merton College ruade Interest for Beadle; upon which my 
Friends desir'd me to move forthwith, which accordingly I did, letting the 
University know that I design'd to appear. My Pretensions were approv'd off, 
and 'twas commonly said that I should certainl¥ be the man. Soon after we 
had news that Mr. Cooling, Bach. of Law, Fellow and Sub-\Varden of New 
College appear'd, and had the Vice-Chancellor, your College, and a great 
many more on his Side: which prov'd truc enough, the Vice-Chancellor 
having got ail Queen's, except one or two, and divers others to be tbr him. 
But notwithstanding this, I should, in the opinion of observing men, have out- 
number'd him, had hot M r. Lhuyd of the Muséum struck in. Upon notice of 
which, all m¥ Friends agreed that/XI r. Lhuyd and I must adjust matters, and 
hot oppose one another, unless we design'd both to loose it. I easily assented, 
especially when soon after we had news of the Death of M r. Hackett, whose 
Interest, except two or three, went over to Cooling. In the Evening of the 
saine Day that we heard of Mr. Caswell's being elected, I met I r. Lhuyd, 
and tho' upon conferring out Interest it appear'd that I had a Majority of 
¥oices, yet because he is Senior, is a man of far better merits than I can pre- 
tend to, and withall because he is my intimate Friend, I £firly agreed to desist. 
I had hot donc this so soon had hot D ï. Hudson that Afternoon in the Public 
Library, and in M . Halley's Hearlng, told me that 'twould be the better way, 
adding that he was sure that all my men would upon that go over fo M r. 
Lhuyd, but that hot one of Mr. Lhuyd's, in case he should desist, would corne 
over to me. But to confront the D r. iXI r. Halle¥ told him immediately that 
he would be for me, but that he would hot vote for Mr. Lhuyd, but would 
sta¥ at home all the time of the Election. And to shew that the Dr. was out

matters was immediately advis'd by lais Friends to stir for it, weh accord-

reasons) being my Senior in the university, as soon as we had news of

:lKareh 31 ('I'h.). We hear from Yeovill in Somersetshire by very 
good Hands that lately in the hard Season a Poor Woman of that 
Country, going to Chard to sell her Yarn, at her Return home fell so very 
ill that she was forc'd to put in at a little House, and being towards 
Evening she desir'd the People that they vould let her sit up by ye Fire 
all Night, she being so very sick as not in any Condition fo go home. 
o This was deny'd. Upon xvhich she xvent out, and coming to a Hedge 
she was forc'd to lye down under it. It snow'd very hard, and in a little 
while she was almost cover'd with it. At last a gIan, one of her Neigh- 
bours came by, who seeing her took her up and desir'd she would by ail 
means go home, it being not (says he) at so great Distance. She follow'd 
him a little way, but being not able to hold out, left him and return'd to 
ye Itedge again, where she lay'd her self down, and the Snow falling still 
very hard she was soon quite cover'd with it. Thus she continu'd for at 
least a Week ; so that her Neighbours ruade great Enquiry after her, but 
no one could give any Account, except ye ]Ian before mention'd, who 
o however was forc'd to be silent, least he should have been taken up 
upon Suspicion of having ruade her away. During this Surprise a poor 
Woman of ye saine Place dream'd one Night that she lay under an Hedge 
in such a Place. She acquainted her Neighbours with ye Dream, who 
immediately went to ye Place with sticks, which they forc'd thro' the 
Snow. At last one of them upon putting his Stick down thought he 
heard something groun; upon which he forc'd it down with more 
Violence, which ruade the Woman cry out, ô for God sake do nol k«'ll ne. 
She was taken out, to ye great astonishment of them all, and was round 
to have eaten a great Part of her upper Garments for Sustenance. Upon 
o Inquiry, she told them that she had layn very warm, and had slept most 
Part of the time. One of her Leggs lay just under a Bush, so that "tavas 
hot quite cover'd with ShOw, by which it became almost mortify'd, but 'tis

lation into Latin ruade of it by ]I r. Christopher Wase, Superior Beadle 
of y8 Civil Law in Oxofi. and 'twas publish'd from the Theater Press in 
a rhin Folio, with a Commentary, by Mr. Obadiah Walker, Master of 
University College. But several Gentlemen being desirous of the English 
Copy, in w«h Language 'twas written by ).8Excellent Author, I was for 
that reason induc'd to undertake the Publication. After I had drawn up 
).8Notes, D r. Charlett, the present Master of University College, being 
about to print a List of the Theater ]3ooks, sent for me to John Hall's at 
).8 Theater, and desired to know of me what was preparing for y8 Press. 
io Amongst other Things I told him of Livy, which he immediately put in ; 
and at the saine rime I mention'd my Design ofprinting Alfred's Life, xvith 
which he was well pleas'd, and put yt in also, and after all at ye 13ottom 
of the Paper he put an imprimatur and his Naine. This Paper he has 
several times since reprinted, and order'd his Naine to stand, and did hot 
so nmch as shew any Dislike of Alfred, but let it continue in the Paper. 
Yet after M r. Lhuyd was elected ]3eadle, when I waited upon the Dr. to 
thank him for his having promis'd me his first Vote, and upon my 
Desisting for his giving his Vote for my Friend Mr. Lhuyd, he receiv'd 
me ver)' civilly at first ; but when I came to mention this Lire of Alfred, 
2o and to inform him that it was almost finish'd at )-8 Press, he fell into a 
great Passion, and began to call Names (according to his usual incon- 
siderate, rash Method) adding ) he wonder'd I should print )-8 Life of 
King Alti'ed without his Privity. I told him )' I could hot imane he 
xvould have resented this thing, when he seem'd all along so well pleas'd, 
and put it himself into )-8 Theater Paper. I likewise said that the Vice- 
Chancellor being in Town when 'twas first put to y8 Press, I had his 
Imprimatur, otherwise I should have corne to himself. This however did 
hot satisfy him, but he continu'd his Railler),, and said he would have me 
call'd to accourir how I came by y8 Copy. I told him yt ye Copy was in 
 y8 Publick Library, free to ).8 View of any one yt desir'd it. After all he 
said King Alfred was their Founder, and yt 'twas a great Affront upon 
him and the test of University College for me to undertake the Publica- 
tion of his Lire. But alass! this is a poor, pififull argument, and fit only 
for such as Charlett, who in reality (notwithstanding all his Pretenses) 
rather obstructs Learning and such as encourage it than an), ways pro- 
motes it. tle might have express'd his Rancour rather against the Wise 
author for writing of it, he being a Cambridge man, than against y8 
Publisher, who was always of this university, bas been a constant Attend- 
ant in the Publick Library ever since his taking y8 Degree of Bachelor of 
40 Arts, was born in y8 saine County that King Alfred himself was, has for 
about 3 or four Years convers'd every day in University College, and eat 
and drank generally every day with them, insomuch that some took him 
for one of the Society ; so yt he thought the publishing the Book would 
be a Piece of Gratitude to y8 College for the Kindnesses he had receiv'd, 
and he thought the Master would bave so esteem'd it. There was hot 
one of the Fellows, or one man else in y8 College, that shew'd any Dislike, 
but y8 quite contrary, Nor did any one of them, that y8 Publisher knows 
o ever declare yt he had a mind or Design to publish it himself, which 
indeed might have been more proper, as he was a Member of that College. 
 Dr. Charlett might as well have objected against Mr. Camden for publish-

ing Asser's Life of Alfred and for writing and printing the Life of Queen 
Elizabeth who was Foundres of Jesus. He might withall bave spoke 
agt Archbv. Parker for publishing the saine Life by Asser, and against 
several considerable lIen besides, which I shall pass by, only note v t he 
might much better bave fallen into an angry Fit against his Friend" and 
Crony Humphrey Wanley, who is now actually writing ye Lire of Cardinal 
Wolsey, without any leave ri'oto the I)ean of Christ-Church, or an)" one 
else that we know of of that Nohle and Learned Society. But ye true 
Reason of the Dr's. Spleen against the Publisher is that he was concern'd 
in D r. Smith's Excellent Edition of Ignatius, which Chaflett strenuously o 
oppos'd and took ail occasions to run it down, tho' he had hot seen so 
much as one word of it. He knew yt the Publisher was a true Friend to 
D r. Smith, and always took care to vindicate him, when he found him 
aspers'd. This lIalice proceeded so far yt when i waited upon him to 
desire his Vote and his Interest for Beadle, he promis'd me but coolly, 
and he did hot so much as speak to one Person in my Bchalf or 
endeavour to get me ole Vote. So yt I ana of opinion that if he could 
have done it with any manner of Credit, he would have voted for Colinge. 
For tho' he afterwards voted for lXIr. Lhuyd, )'et he did hot I ara per- 
suaded doit heartily, he having ail along spoke but scurvily of him, and  
I have been told that he wish'd that Lhu)-d and I might bave stood it 
both out, which would have been an infallible wav to have got Colinge in, 
and to bave put us both by. However by this Publication of ,Mfred, he 
has an opportunity given him of raising a Plausible Story against yo 
Publisher (wela yet will hot be regarded by lXIen of true sense and Honour) 
ofappearing against him whenever he stands for any Place hereafter ; but, 
God be thank'd, the Publisher is far from being discourag'd from such 
unmanly Proceedings, but will acquiesce in wtever station it shall 
please God to place him, especially when he is conscious that he bas 
done nothing to the Disgrace of the university, but bas always ruade o 
it his Business to act as much as possibly he could for the Honour and 
Credit of it, and he does not question but ail candid, impartiall and 
ingenuous Persons will think so. After the Book was finish'd, I waited 
upon the lXIaster with a Copy of large Paper neatly bound, and offer'd it 
him as a Present ; but he refis'd to accept it, and s,'dd he would bave 
nothing to do with me. Another reason, as some think, and I ara apt to 
think so too, why the Dr. is so violent in this Case ainst the Publisher, 
is that 'tis not dedicated to him ; but ye Publisher thought it proper to add 
no Dedication of his own, but to prefix the Dedication of the author him- 
self to the Prince of Wales afterwards King Charles II. 'Tis probable 40 
had the author had no Dedication the Publisher might bave dedicated it 
to y Doctor and the Society (in which he would bave ask'd their Leave) 
but there being a Dedication of the author to so great a Patron 'twould 
bave been a Diminution to y Prince to bave fled for Protection to any 
Inferior Person. Nor was this y opinion only of y Publisher, but of 
others with whom he consulted. Now tho" there be no Dedication to y 
Doctor, yet the Publisher bas taken care to mention him with all due 
Respect, upon Account of a Book with lXISS. Notes, that he shew'd him 
whilst he was drawing up Notes to this Life, which was of some use in 
giving Account of the King's Works as to Learning ; and he thought this o 

18 OE HE,4R!VE'S COLLECT[ONS. [1709 : 

woula bave been kindly taken and interpreted as a mark of his true sense 
of Gratitude: and so it would have appear'd to any man that is hot 
byass'd by Prejudice and Partiality, and that has any thing of a Spirit of 
Generosity. After he had talk'd at this rate, as is above specify'd, to the 
Publisher, he next day sent for M r. Thistlethwayte the Ware-House 
Keeper at the Theater, and rattled him off for Printing the 13ook. 
Thistlethwayt told him yt what he had done was done by the Vice- 
Chancellor's Leave and Permission. This did hot content him, but he 
said he would hinder ye Publication of the Book. Upon vhich a Copy 
xo of it was deliver'd to him by Thistlethwayte (which however ought hot to 
have been done) on purpose that he might peruse it, and sep if there were 
any thing against Religion or good Manners in it. The Publisher did 
hot hear of this 'till some rime after; but when he understood it, he 
immediately concluded that this Malicious Proceeding was purely to ruin 
the Credit of the Book. I had twenty Copies allow'd me, io large and 
ten small, to present to my Friends ; but I could not get a Book from the 
Theater by Reason of D r. Charlett's stopping them. I went soon after 
to the D r. and desir'd he would be pleas'd to assign some reason for this 
hindering the Books to be deliver'd. He granted that he had done this, 
2o but said he had nothing at all to object against the Book or against the 
Additions I had ruade, but approv'd them very well. All he had to say 
against it he said, was lhe method ofpublishing il. By which vords I 
understood that he would have had his Imprimatur toit, and that it should 
bave been done by his Direction, such is the Humour and Vanity of him. 
I desir'd that he would give orders to Mr. Thistlethwayte for Delivery of 
my Copies. He told me he would, and that he would hOt in the least 
oppose it's being publish'd. After this, I went that afternoon to M r. 
Thistlethwayte, but hot meeting with him at home, I left him a note, signify- 
ing that D r. Charlett liked the Book and the Notes ver)" well, and that he 
30 would hOt hinder it's being publish'd, and that therefore I desir'd he 
would deliver my Copies to ye Binder that I should order to call for them. 
When Thistlethwayte return'd home, upon reading the Note, he went to 
Charlett and shew'd it him. Charlett could hOt forbear his Venom, but 
however he consented that the Books should be deliver'd accoraingly, 
which was done faithfully. But his Malice stopp'd not here ; he sent for 
13urghers the Ingraver, and demanded of him by whose orders he ingrav'd 
King Alfred's Head prefix'd to the Book. He reply'd by the Direction, 
and at ye order of the Publisher : at which he huff'd very much, and ask'd 
him whether he was payd for it. He said Yes. After which he gave 
40 him a strict charge never to ingrave any thing more from ye Publick 
Library, without first acquainting him with it ; such is the peevish, ridiculous, 
mad temper of this Dr. and such his Conceit, as if nothing should be done 
in the university without his authority. I cannot hear that he talks hardly 
with any one about this Matter, but such as are as ignorant as hirnself, 
and particularly with William Sherwin, formerly a Barber, and now one 
of the Yeomen Beadles, a Pert, forward, conceited, unskillfull Person, John 
Prickett (the Pragmatical Butler of the College) and with one Clarke, a 
Scrivener, and an empty, silly, conceited Fellow. These three Persons, 
who are his Oracles, he consults in this and other Affairs, and they al 
 three concurr, and tell it about, that a great Affront is done to ye Master 

loril5.] VOLU3IE XIA-, I.-IGFS 58-67. 183 

and College by ye Publisher in setting out this Lire; but M". Hinton of 
Corpus Xti College, who is one of his Favourites, told him plainly that he 
was of opinion that the Publisher had donc Credit to both, and ought 
instead of having bad usage to bec incourag'd, and applauded for yo 
undertaking. Nor is this yo only Instance of D r. Charlett's Malignity to 
v« Publisher. About 3 or four Years since the Publisher had seen a 
ISk in Vellam in 8 vo. of Part of Tully's Epistles in the Dr'. Study, and 
he took a Note of it, and told yo Master that 'twould be of use in a new 
Edition of yt Excellent Author. After Livy was finish'd the Publisher 
was importun'd by D r. Hudson (whose truc Friendship, and Generosity io 
he rnust always acknowledge) and some others in Oxford & elsewhere to 
undertake an Edition of Tully. 
Now tho' the Publisher was highly sensible of yo Difficulty of that 
Work, and of yo Immense Pains requir'd in it, yet upon D r. Hudson's 
frankly Promising to assist in it, (whose Readiness and fidelity he has 
found certain hitherto) he did at length comply, and accordingly set him- 
self to collate ye MSS. Some tine after he had began this Drudgery the 
Publisher call'd upon Dr. Charlett, and desir'd that he would be so kind 
as to lend him the said MS. Epistles of Tully above mention'd. 2llS . 
Episll«s o Tully ! (says the Dr.) zohy whal would«/ do wi/h /ho/ ? The 20

there are ldt'lions cnooEh a/rcad 3, ; «d ficsidcs thcre is one of our own 
I-louse alrcady about il, z,iz. 3['-. Cockman. I told him that several Persons 
of skill were of opinion that a great deal might be done to Tully, that I 
found it by experience myself by examining some Places, That there 
was no good Edition to be easily procur'd & that as to Mr. Cockman I 
was well inform'd that tho' he once design'd such a thing yet his Eyes 
failing him, & he being ingag'd in Business of another nature, he had 
quite laid it aside ; but however that if he was resolv'd to prosecute it, I 30 
would communicate to him my Collations. After this he said no more, 
but proceeded to talk of other matters, & would hot so much as shew me 
the NS. About 3 Weeks since I r. Cockman came to Oxford, and I 
then told him of a Design of Publishing Tully here at Oxford, but yt yo 
Person ingag'd would not do it without his Leave. He said he had 
altogether laid it aside, and that he left any one at liberty to undertake it, 
and should be very glad to see it perform'd. (One of ye chief Reasons 
of Charlett's stopping my Book, as he told the Vice-Chancellor, to whom 
indeed he offer'd no other, was because the Picture at yo Beginning 
differ'd from the other Pictures of him that had been before printed ; w ch ao 
gave occasion to great gIirth in the University.)

you bave receiv'd the small Present of King Alfred's Lire. This naturallv 
leads me to give you a short Narrative of Part of D". Gharlett's Malignity.  
transcrib'd this Lire about 4 or 5 Years since ri-oto the Original MS. in the 
Publick Library, and afterwards made several Additions to it. Sometime after 
D r. Gharlett being going to print a List of Theater Books, he sent for me to 
John Hall's and ask'd me what Things were going forwards. Amongst the 
rest I mention'd Livy, which he immediately put in. I also told him that I 
design'd to print Alfred's Lire from the MS. He was very ,vell pleas'd with 
it, and presently writ it down in the Paper, which he caus'd to be printed with 
his Naine and lmprlmatur at y Botto,n. This Paper he has had printedseveral 
rimes since, and was so far from being displeas'd at Alfred, that he let it stand, 
and signifyed to no one that he resented it. But when 'twas almost finish'd at 
y Press, I waited upon him to thank him for the Promise of his first Vote to 
me in y late Election, & upon my Desisting for his giving it to M"ç Lhuyd. 
He ,vas civil enough 'till I mention'd Alfred's being printing, when he fell into 
a great Passion, and said that he would call me to account how I came by the 
Gopy. I told him 'twas in y Publick Library, free to be seen by anyone. He 
insisted that I should have had his Leave. To which I reply'd that I had the 
¥ice-Ghancellor's lmprimtur, and that I thought 'twould have been an Affront 
to ye Vice-Ghancellor to have requested any one's License besides : that how- 
ever if the Vice-Ghancellor had been absent I would bave corne to him, be- 
fore I had offer'd to have proceeded ; adding withall that I could not imagine 
he could have resented the printing of it, when he seem'd all along so well 
pleas'd, and put it into the Theater List himselfi This did not satisfy him, but 
he dismiss'd me very roughly, and the next day sent for Thistlethwayte, and 
rattled him off for Printing the Book. Thistlethwayte said he had the Vice- 
Ghancellor's Orders. After that he sent for Burghers, and ask'd him who 
order'd hi,n to ingrave the Head. He said the Publisher. He then ask'd 
xvhether he were paid. He reply'd, Yes. Upon which he gave him express 
Orders never to ingrave any thing more in the Publick Library without his 
Privity and Leave. But Burghers only laughs at this. \Vhen he had gone 
th,s far, he order'd the Book to be stop'd at y Theater, and endeavour'd all 
he could to have it suppress'd, tho' he had no Gommission from the Vice- 
Ghancellor. Thistlethwayte being concern'd at this deliver'd him a Gopy 
(which however he should hot have done} to peruse. \Vhen I was inform'd 
of this, I waited upon the D r. about the Matter. He acknowledg'd that he

now for installing thls Gentleman (who is remarkable for carrying on the 
lifting Trade & for being an ignoramus in Learning) than ye Chancellor's 

had put a stop to the Book, bllt that upon looking it over he was vcry well 
pleas'd both with the Book and the Notes, and that he would hot oppose it's 
being publish'd, and that he had nothing to object against it but the Method of 
Printing it. By th.e llletbod I suppose he would have had his own Imprimatur, 
had it dedicated to himself (which would have been a Diminution to the 
Author's Great Patron) and have had the Direction of the whole. Upon this 
Answer of the D es I call'd at yO Theater and receiv'd the Copies allow'd me. 
After I had got some bound, I offer'd one in large Paper (of which there were 
but 25 in ail) wrought neatly to him ; but he refus'd to accept it, and said he 
,.ould have nothing to do with me. Had any one of the College pretended to 
bave printed this Book, he lnight have had some Ground for his Violence to 
me ; but all ye Society were well pleas'd with me, and hot one of them had 
any such Design. Nay they thought it a Mark of Gratitude in me, for the 
several Kindnesses I had constantly receiv'd ri'oto the College for about 3 or 4 
Years together. But Charlett must have some Plea for his appcaring hereafter 
against me upon a Vacancy, if it should please God l should stand. 'Tis true 
he promis'd me in the last Canvass, and he afterwards joyn'd with Mr. Lhuyd ; 
but I really believe he was hot heartily for either, I having filll Evidence that 
he spoke to no one in my Bchalf, and have as great reason to think he was no 
more zealous for lXI r. Lhuyd, of whom I bave always heard him speak but 
scurvily. So that if he could have done it without Disgrace he would bave 
appear'd for Colinge .... I have read over ail D r. Bentley's Elnendations, and 
reduc'd them into two or three Pages for my on Use. I find them much 
worse than I exspected. They seldom agree with the MSS. I have collated; 
& the best of them were belote ail observ'd by Lambin. I have often heard 
of the Emendation of Horace you mention ; but 'ris only fit to create lXIirth. 
On Thursday lXIarch 3i st died D r. Baily Principal of New-Inn-Hall, and was 
buried the Sunday night fbllowing in S t. Peter's Church in y° Baily. D r. John 
Brabourn of your College is to succeed him. 0 temora.t ô mores.t I bave hot

Pupil to Republican White, Fellow of yt tlouse, having stood for his 
Bach. of Arts Degree, he was deny'd three tilnes, and yesterday the 
reasons for ye Denyal were read in Çongregation, which were,--. That 
he had asserted that the Birth of King William was a greater Miracle 
than ye Birth of out Saviour. 2. That the Bible was no more penn'd by 
ye Holy Ghost than a colnmon Legend. (3)- That God's being said in 
y Bible to speak to Moses, was notbing but to amuse the People, he 
having really never spoke to him. What aggravated the Marrer was that 
o when he was charg'd to have spoken thus by some Persons, who ask'd 
him whether he was hot asham'd and sorry for such Words, he maintain'd 
that what he said was truc and he could hot sec that there was any hurt 
to assert such Principles. These Reasons were approv'd as sufficient for 
his Denyal by y Congre[g]ation. -- This Da)', irl ye Fore-noon, Dr. 
John Brabourn, the Toper, was admitted Principal of New-Inn-Hall. --

the Genuineness of y Passage are hot so strong as those he has collected

Friends. -- When M r. Bear (the notorious Blasphemer, who was deny'd 
his Degree) was ask'd by some what he thought of tbose Words, so often 
repeated in Scripture, andy « Lord said unlo ][oses. He reply'd that he 
acknowledg'd that they were often in the Bible, but that they were words 
of amusement, not as being spoken by the Lord. When he was advis'd 
by his Friends to recant these pernicious Tenets, and to repent for what 
3o he had donc, & consider better, he went out of the roome, saying, - Tobil

so much Mischief in the University.)

bas put qu«nam vox *la ? signit)-ing thereby that he was ignorant what 
the Meaning of it should be. Nor bas Sr. Hammond offer'd at any Solu- 
tion. M r. Thwaites ofQueen's College is of opinion that the word should 
be thwaA'&, and that it cornes from the Saxon Dweal, i.e. lotio, ablutio, 
dilutio, or ri'oto Dwealu. lavacra, Baths, or Fonts. Whereby 'twill betoken 
b«plt#ria or Fonls. Which is an ingenious Conjecture, and might be 
approv'd of if we could find that the word was at this time us'd to signifie 
so, or if it would agree with the other words w "eh [ have transcrib'd. 
They are commanded to pray for those who had ruade some extraordinary 
Benefactions; but Fonts were ordinary and of Course in every Church. 
The Parish was oblig'd to find them, whether there were Benefactors or 
no. Besides they had nothing ofextraordinaryin their Work, unless now 
and then. By ye EcclesiasticN Canons they were to be of Stone, and so 
theyhave been constantly. The Rich Baptisterium indeed of Constantine 
ye Great had within it Silver, & "twas adorn'd with other Riches ; and so 
we read of a few others. But that was reckon'd Princely, & altogether 
ainst the common Curse. We must therefore look for somethingthat 
may answer the other Extraordinary Gifts here mention'd in the form, such 
as might strike an immediate Zeal in the several Members to put up their 3o 
Prayers for the respective Benefactors. If we have recourse to the other 
Form of bidding of Prayers, printed by St. Itammond pag. 18x. the word 
must be equivalent to Zan. For so 'tis express'd : Alsoy« shallpro,for 
ious worke.' Commends H.'s roEarks on the Bath inscription; doubts not 
that God will raise him up rich and powerful fi'iends, 'to make a plentiful 
position for' him. Amazed at Dr. Ch.'s rude and barbarous treatment of H., 
who had lost himself in the opinion of his friends if he had dedicated his book 
to such a Fanfaron. Has just borrowed and re-read Colet's Sermon before 
Convocation in 5 , republished by Thos. Smith, of Christ's Coll. Cana. and 
Keeper of the Public Library there in 66, 8vo. S. maintained a corres-

of the Tusc.Disp. and that of Theophilus Antiochenus. ' I heard very lately,

be most reasonable, that the Parson's Tale should bec the conclusion of their

Author of good Credit, at least amongst our young Physitians. The nev

him, for striking in with the Master against his own Pupil M'. Charles Usher, 
a very ingenious Gentleman, who was expell'd you know seine years since for 
certain Expressions that were objected against him that had been spoken two 
years before... About a Month before Ester one D '. Sandolans, a Scotch- 
man, came te the University, having been rccommended by D r. Sloan, and 
seine others, in order te instruct young Physitians and others in Anatomy. He 
apply'd himself te the Vice-Chancelier, and desir'd his Leave that he might 
dissect in the University-Anatomy-Schoole. The Vice-Chanc. granted him 
this Privilege, and upon that Grant (and his having had leave withall frein yo 
Professer) I let him have one of the Keys of the Schoole, tho' much against 
my Will, being apprehensive that it being se near the Library it would be an 
oflinse te Strangers, and there being a great many Curiosities, there would be 
danger of having seine of them lest. As I fear'd, se it happen'd ; for continu- 
ing here at least six X.Veeks, in which time several humane Bodies were cut up, 
it ruade Strangers shie of coming into the Library, and, what was worse, when 
I cam% after they had done, te examin the Things here reposited I found 
seine wanting, particularly a small» but antient, Image of Paila, I)rass ; a Medal 
of Priamus, King of Troy, @urious ; a Medai of the BP  put into the Tower ; 
a small one of Otho, like silver but counterfeit ; a large Sflver Medal of 
Charles lI King of Spath ; & a 5 Shili. Piece of Oliver Cromwell, si#oer. This 
Gentleman had been here the Year before, but then he dissected in another 
Place. I mn sorry the Vice-Chanc. was se easy, and the rather because here 
was a Bach. of Physick of our own University» an ingenious, modest Man, who 
would have done it as weii {if net better) and much cheaper. 'Tis likely you 
may give me seine account of the Character of him ; but I cannot charge him

Lambin's ed. MIJred is well received, and he has been pressed to publish other

stances as is generally represented. Iff. to Dr. OE'. Smith (Rawl. 38. 35).

relation there given of lais great friend Cardinal Noris. ' I ara, as I formerly 
told you, enter'd upon a great and troublesome Work, which is the Edition 
Tully, which I continually prosecute, and have already collated ail the IISS. 
we have in the Bodlejan Library, and ana now collating Lambiu's Edition, which 
I find to vary in an infinite Number of Places from the vulgar Editions; & 
Variations are very material, such as alter the Sense and Style, and often agree 
with our MSS. This Undertaking I bave ventured upon at the Importunity 
of our Good Friend D r. Hudson; and several other Worthy Persons in this 
Place. It happens that these Gentlemen, notxvithstanding their Great Con- 
cern for carrying on other Parts of Learning, have little or no Relish for our 
English History and Antiquities ; so that at present I cannot cultivate these 
Studies so much as my Inclination prompts me to, by reason of the Depend- 
ence the Meaness of my Circumstances makes me have upon them, and I ara 
oblig'd to publish those Books as more immediately fall in with their Fancies. 
But if it please God that I be advanc'd to a beneficial Post, and that I ara once 
well rid of Tully, I design then wholly to follow those Studies to which I ara 
by nature most inclined, and there is no Book that will be more agreeable to 
me than Camden's Brltannia, which I ara sensible might be much improv'd, and 
I ara glad that his own Additions are fallen into so good Hands as your's. It 
happens very luckily that you are so shy to Mr. Murer, who is certainly a 
Rascal as he has plainly discover'd not only by the Violation of his Oath to 
our Publick Library, from which he stole several Books (which however were 
all happily recover'd) but by other notorious and abominable Crimes. I 
thought he had been out of England, we having hot heard of him a great 
while ; but it seems he now lurks in London, and is for making his Acquaintance 
with ye Learned Men of our Nation. Your Accouut of Sandolands will be 
kindly receiv'd when you can conveniently transmit it.' Sends a list of the

bassadors in antient rimes amongst the Romans so modest that they

with an Iron Stylus. (Herm. Hugo de Scribendi orig. c. ix.) This par- 
ticularly us'd in anticnt Inscriptions, especially of the Jews. This Style 
call'd in Job xix. by the Naine of Coelte. where some however falsely read o 
cette. This Style ruade so as that one end was sharp for writing, the 
other obtuse for rubbing out what was wrong, as mav be seen from 
Figure in Hugo. Then they had a Brass Stylus. "i'hen one of Bone. 
This mightily approv'd of by the Romans, who ruade this injunction, 
Ceram ferro ne coedito, as Isidore 1. ri. c. 9. which order however was 
afterwards discontinued : for in the rime of Martial they ruade use of Iron 
Styli. So lib. xv. Epigr. xxi.

opinion that 'twould be for the Credit of the University, and that no small 
service would be done to Learning, to have Tully's Works accurately printed 
at the Theater. The best Editions, namely those of P. Victorius, Lambin, and 
Gruter are grown very scarse. And Gronovius's is hot so common (hot to 
mention the Smallness of the Letter) as to hinder the Undertaking. But I 
wish some others, I mean Fellows of Houses, or some Officers of the Univer- 
sity who have good Rewards, would have undertaken this laborious \Vork, and 
that it had not fallen upon me. However nov I have enter'd into it, I ara 
resolv'd to prosecute it, and to carry it on by degrees, tho' I easily perceive 
that 'twill cost 7 or 8 Years Drudgery. I was inform'd above  Years since 
of Le Clercks Project. Yet that did hot at all influence me to lay aside what 
I had begun. I have been since told that the Bookseller upon appearing of 
the Oxford Edition has put a Stop to that Undertaking, with abundance of 
Indignation, that we should be before hand with hiln. Ail that Le Clerck in-

Gentleman, who was no better a Governour than Scholar. inçe that we have 
lost a very valuable lXIan, ]XI r. Edward Lhuyd, Keeper of the Ashmolean 
lXiuséum and Superior Beadle of Divinity, who was taken with a Pleurisy on 
Sunday last in the Afternoon, and died on Wednesday tbllowing between io 
and x i Clock in the Eening, in the 49 th Year of his Age. Wlat contributed 
to the Distemper was an Asthma, whieh he had had for several Years. By his 
Death you and I hav, lost a dear Friend, and Learning has suffer'd in no 
small degree. On Frl'day Morning at 8 Clock vas a Convocation for Election 
of a Beadle. There were only 2 Candidates, M". Colinge and myself; but 
finding that I should eertainly Ioose it by a considerable Number, I desisted 
the saine 1Uorning before the Election came on, being advis'd so to do by tny 
best Friends, and so Colinge bas at last gain'd his Point. I must upon this 
occasion gratefully acknowledge the Favours I receiv'd from Christ-Church, 
University, Oriel, Lincoln, Corpus Christi, and Jesus Colleges, who ve'e 
almost ail unanimous for me, and I might have succeeded with case, if some 
Friends had hOt deserted me, and the Vice-Chancellor had hot appointed the 
Election so soon ; which as it vas to my Prejudice, so was it a Disrespect to 
the Defunct, who was hot buried till 9 CIock in the Evening after the Elee- 
tion. M '. Colinge knev of M". Lhuyd's Sickness, whereas 1 had hot the least 
Notice of it, 'till the Day after his Death. By this means Colinge had 
secur'd a great Number of Votes, which he ows in a very great measure to yO 
lndustry of the Vice-Chaneellor, the "Varden of All-Souls, the Master of 
]3alliol, & the Felloxvs of O.9een's. If the Election had been deferr'd 'till this 
BIorning, as it was exspected, it should (for the Vice-Chancellor promis'd me 
everything should be transacted fairly) I had got a great many Votes from 
London, & elsewhere; but the Vice-Chançellor was too sensible of the 
Advantages, which Colinge had over me by a speedy Election, & it was xvish'd 
that in the former Canvass the Election had been two days sooner, by which 
]I r, Lhuyd (notwithstanding ail we could do for him) would have infallibly 
miss'd of the Place, a great Part of his Interest lying abroad, whereas 
Colinge's were near at hand, excepting some few. BI r. Lhuyd lyes buried in 
the Church of S t. lIichael. His Body was convey'd from the Muséum (where

bave divided it into two. You may see the footsteps of that word in the

E in Edxvard and A in Alderman, indifferent to either. And in the excellent 
Du Cange's Glossary of Latine words you will find Astula, or Hastula signify 
a chip or segment of wood eut off from a greater piece. He quotes also 
Adamnanus de locis SS. T. which we bave not here, for that way of writing 
it  Astola, as in Alfrede. I take it therefore for a segment of xvood indented 
in the cover of the Book (whether in the middle of the Boss, or at the edg) 
and of another colour, that might make it taken notice of, like the Opus 
Musivum xvith stones. And that the sure of 50 marks was xvritten in it as the 
fine which should be incurred by the Person who should alienate the Book 
from the Minster, or tear the Astele from the Book. Ail the Punishments

Town rang. No one remembers that ever any Head of a House was brought 
in in so great State and Pomp. He was admitted the next Day, and I believe 
will make a better Governour than his Predecessour. But as for Parts or

such Encouragement at Oxford for publishing Books as M r. Rymer has at

dertakings are far greater than his, tho' they may hot be thought so by such 
who are unadequate Judges. He has the honour of the \Vork, but the trouble 
of transcribing the several Papers, & of correcting the Press, is owing to others, 
unless I ara very much misintbrm'd ; so that his Skill is to be judg'd of when 
his Critical Supplement cornes out. But I do hot say this by way of lessening 
his Character ; for certainly he deserves well of the Publick, and I ara heartily 
glad that such a "Work goes on with so good Success.' 'Tis very seldom that 
H. now goes into the Theatre Printing-House ; but he understands that they 
bave just begun to print Beveridge on the Articles & Potter's ed. of Clemens 
Alexandrinus. Has hot near so great an opinion of the learning of the latter 
as the Part}- bave, amongst xvhom there are hot man}- competent judges of 
true learning. Dodwell has brought to Oxford his Dissertations on Theophilus 
Antioch. and the Periegesls. Has lately seen two thin books in quarto, printed 
at Florence, and sent over into England by Maggliabecchi (to whom they are 
dedicated), to a learned man in these parts, riz. the Hodceporicon of Ambrosius 
Camaldulensis, and De "oaria Lectione ./tdagij" B6zza aptm«6 by Paulus

D r. )?[chard çlanihursl in his excellent work de re3us I]i3o'nicis lib. iv. p. 
 7 o. bas given a character of Slraboe, vho did very great Service in the 
Conquest of Ireland by/-/or. Il. where he also gives us an account of the 
Death of his Son, as he receiv'd by Tradition, there being not the least 
mention of it in G_yrahtlS Camrensgs. tIe there tells us that this Son of 
Slranghoe was a Young Gentleman naturally addicted to war, of a Courage 
far beyond his Years, and hy the great Deeds of his Father spurred on to 
undertake an F.nterprise which, if it had succeeded, would have rais'd his 
xo Faine far beyond anything that his Father had attempted. It seems the 
Irish Nobles being extremely mov'd at the Conquest of Zemsler by 
lrmç[;oe, combin'd together to hinder the Progress of his Arms, & to 
cast off all obedience to the .Ezglish. Accordingly they rais'd an Army ; 
, when Slrang3oe understood he was resolv'd to oppose them with the 
utmost vigour. Upon the Da), of Battle çlrangl)oe's Son came to him, & 
earnestly desired of his Father that he would be pleas'd to permitt him to 
bave lhe Guidance & Direction of the Army, pathetically telling him the 
consequences of a victory & what Influence it would have in raising his 
Fortune. The Father was a wise and experienc'd General & had a fore- 
20 sight of the Issue if such a trust were committed to him. tic plainly laid 
open the numbers of the Enemy & showed the Disparity between the two 
Armys. The English troops were thin & pretty well worn out; the Irish 
were very numerous & divers of them fresh & exasperated with the Desire 
of revenge. However the father consented to the desire of his Son, but 
withall told him that as he was the Instrument of bringing him into the 
vorld, So he would be the instrument of his Death if he miscarried in this 
Rash Attempt. The Son went against them with full assurance of 
Victory; but at the first onset his Courage t:ail'd him, & he return'd with 
great Fear and Trepidity to his Father, who, out of a Religious observ- 
30 ance of his Protestation, immediately eut him in two with his sword, & 
prosecuted the Battle himself with new vigour, & obtain'd a compleat 
victory. The whole Story is commouly reported to this Day, & there is 
a monument in the Church at Dublin dedicated to ye Holy Trinity in 
commemoration of the Father and Son. There is a marne Statue of 
• STrazg3oe & on the left side of it another marble lXIonument of the Son, 
representiug him holding up his Boxxells with both his hands in the 
Posture as 'tis suppos'd he was when he was thus cut in sunder by his 
Father. ,ç/anyhursl cites this lX[onument as a confirmation of the Tradi- 
tion ; but it seenas to me rather that the monument xvas put up long afier 
40 the Fact, purely upon Account of the Story, & to conform with it. But 
it may be this is only surmise. The Ionument should be exactly and 
nicely view'd and a Judgment ruade whether it be agreeable to that Age. 
It seems to me that if there had been any such thing Gyraldus Cambrensis, 
who is extremely particular in other Affairs of little moment, would have 
related it, & I believe it could hOt bave pass'd vithout an Inscription, 
especially if we consider the Character Strangboe had rais'd anaongst all 
sorts of People. tIis Funeral was solemniz'd by the greatest Personages, 
& if there were any Ionument rais'd to his lXlemory they would hOt in ail 
likelyhood have let it pass without an Epitaph answerable to his Courage 
50 & other virtues. It seems to me that he had a lIonument, & that it came

that l]l«a'imilian I. was hot only a great Warrier, but like J«lius Coesar o 
writ colnmentaries of his own Atchievernents. He farther there notes that

ature began to flourish in Germa o, partly b)' the Invention of Pl'inting, 
xvhich he says happen'd about the said year 44o, and partir by the

Agricola, (the Disciple of Theodorus Gaze) who aftcr the taking of Con-

Books of value he could and placed thern in a particular Room ; w ela it =o 
seerns was the first original of this Excellent Library. In pag. 116. he 
mentions ye sarne thing of e]laa'imilian I svS. tare in erecting a Library 
and collecting ail rnanner of Books both written & printed, & he confutes 
]Vaud«us's Error in attributing this Act to fi'rt'd, rt'ck Il. whereas he 
ought rather to have given it to Friderick III. as cornrnonly call'd, tho' 
he be really ['riderick V.--And as for those few Books that are correct,

they are very rarely to be bought, being either very diligently kept and

taken away by those who know the truc value of thern. Those that are 30 
to be bought are extravagantly dear, if compar'd with the P,'ices of our

opinion of Rymer and his work : wishes that he would now give to the world 
his olurnen hitorico-crltico-curioum (cf. his Preface to Vol. I and Three Let- 
ters to Bp. Nicolson). Hopes thal: Beveridge's Exposition ofthe XXXL¥ 
ticle will be very carefully examined before printing at Oxford; he was 
gencrally looked upon in London as a Calvinist on many points. Hopes to 
see Dodwell on the YlptçTr/o-tç and his ed. of St. Barnabas. \Vhat is the 
opinion in Oxford ofthe Hodoeporicon ofAmbrosius Camaldulensis ? \Vould like 
to see Nourra of Cagliari's Description of Sardinia, and would go, « as lamish as 
I ara, the whole length of London, to find out another copy of that Specimen, 
you mention to be sent to Oxon.' The little mistakes which he may discorer 
in Cluver will not diminish from the faine which the latter bas justly acquired ; 
cf. also Holstenius' Annotations (Rome 66o). Has bought Montfaucon's Pa- 
laeographia Graeca for 35s. ; thinks that H. and two or three others could 
publish an equal or better work out of the Bodleian and other English libraries. 
' But you, it seemes, are tyed & staked down to "Tu]]y: tho' I hope that at your 
leisure-houres you apply your mind to the study of En.çlish History : of w e you 
bave given so good a specimen, that not onely here, but at Cambridge, you 
bave raised a great expectation of your after-performances in this kind of 
curious and usefull learning : to w eh by your genius and inclination you seeme 
most addicted, and for the carrying on ofw eh you are ver)-equal and fit in your 
present station. Let this suggestion of naine sinke deep into your memory, and

to see the said Palafines go by, and of course they ruade some Reflec-

being heard by one of the Palatines, he gave a hint to his Companions,

other reasons, I do something af it every day, but 'tis a Work so extensive & 
of so troublesome a nature, that I often fear I shall never be able to go through 
with it. They have hot begun as yet to print D . Beverege's Expositio, in 
good earnest, the Paper being not sent by the Bookseller, who was lately at 
Oxford himself & agreed about the Letter & Form. The copy is now in the 
hands of one M r. Hill, a Master of Arts & Fellow of Q.een's College, who, it 
seems, is to take tare of the Press ; but I think I know him so well that I may 
safely say he will not trouble himself about examining anything in the Book, 
but will take whatever is said upon trust. But I have been told it has been 
sifted already.' Criticises Dodwell's two Dissertations, which are too tedious, 
though containing a vast deal of curious learning. He argues against the 
genuineness of the whole of the Acts of Ignatius. ' 'Tis the great Unhappiness 
of this excellent learned Person that he will neither be advis'd, nor expunge 
any thing he bas once written.' Threw by the Hodoeporicon as dry, rough,

About a week since canae to Oxford, and put up at the Grey-Hound, six 
of the pretended Prophets, call'd Camisars, namely  naen 3 women and 
a Girl. One of the naen was about 50 years of Age, & the other, whose 
naine is Thonaas Lardner, about 30. They continu'd 3 or four days in 
Town without any Discovery; but at last the women had Agitations, & 
abundance of People went to sec them. The two naen were Scribes only, 
and writ clown the words spoken by the wonaen, and would read the 
several Sentences to those that visited them. News being brought to the 2o 
Vice-Chancellor of these Transactions between three and four a Clock 
yesterday in thë Afternoon he went to the Grey-Hound, where he round 
vast crouds of People, scholars as well as others, whom he dismiss'd 
inanaediately, and order'd these deluded wretches to go quickly out of 
Town, under Penalty of being sent to Bridewell which they pronais'd fo 
do upon lIonday following. The wonaen were all young, & the Girl not 
above 3 or 4 Years old. The said lI r. Lardner was forlnerly a Cana- 
bridge Scholar, whence he was expell'd for Lewdness and Debauchery. 
About  years since, as he also acknowledg'd now himself, he was in 
Oxford, & was a great conapanion of one lIr. Parsons's of lIagd. College, 30 
a )'oung Gentleman of a loose Lire, and little Sense, who is since taken 
frorn the university upon Account of his Extravagances. As for Lardner 
hirnself he is a naan of Parts, and has got a ready knack of Defending the 
whims & Tricks and Fancies of these Poor deluded People. The Girl 
has no Agitations, & is seenaingly modest. She is however lead by them 
to yield to their Immodest Actions, & having sonae Beauty she is a proper 
Instrument to gain upon their Affections, veh she has particularly donc 
ulon one Gordon, a scotch lIan and one of the Sect. Her narne is Ann 
Topham, and she bas receiv'd a great Sum of money (as the rest bave) 
from Sir Richard Bulkeley, to carry on this cheat, not to mention other 4 ° 
sums continually disburs'd by others upon the saine Account. But their 
Tricks will more manifestly appear from several Books lately printed in 
order to la 3, open their Snares and Vickedness and Inanaorality, and 
anaongst the rest ought to be consulted a Paper just printed at Oxford in 
half a Sheet, call'd x''ews from lhe Prophets, in three Z.etlers : or, A Dis-

Letters were procur'd and communicated by lIr. Thwaites, Fellow of 
Queen's College, & Greek Professor in this University. It seems he got 
them yesterday whilst he was present at the Grey-Hound, and he was 50

willing to do this piece of service to the Christian Religion & the Publick 
:as to have them printed, that by these Letters People may see what little 
Pretenses to the Spirit of God these Persons have, whilst they speak 
nothing but Blasphemies and manifestly declare that what they dois 
nothing else but a sly method to carry on Debauchery and Loosness. 
As for Facio who is the Author of the first Letter, he is one of the 
principal Persons engag'd in this undertaking. He is a lIan of strong 
natural Parts, is a most excellent/\Iathematician, & bas no mean Skill in 
several other Parts of Learning; but it bas been always observ'd of him 
xo that he is a sceptick in Religion, a Person of no virtue, but a meer 
Debauchee. He was formerly a Director to ye Duke of Bedford, whilst 
he was of IIagd. Coll. in Oxford, who, by his lXleans, imbib'd odd 
Principles, grew a great Gamester and Spend-Thrift ; but since Facio left 
him, & since he is grown to 5Iaturity, he has laid aside this way of Living, 
& is become a prudent and sober Gentleman. During the time Facio 
was with him, he got by his Insinuation and cunning a vast sure of 5Ioney 
from the Duke, & ruade all the Provisions possible for his future Advan- 
tage. Sir Richard ]3ulkely was once look'd upon as a sober, grave and 
Religious Gentlcman. Ho had a design of building a College in Ireland, 
2o and he often writ to D r./Iill upon that score, the Dr.being the lIan it seems 
who was to be imploy'd in framing Statutes for the Government of it. 
This the D r. himself told me more than once, and read to me some of 
Sir Richard's Lctters, w ch I remember were honest Letters, and by their 
I)rift appear'd to tend to a good End. But since that time he is grown 
an Enthusiast, & one of the chief Promoters of these miserably de- 
luded People, and to shew his zeal the more publickly has writ a vindica- 
tion of them. -- Harduin tells Noris he does hot understand Greek, and 
therefore impossible for him to consult Eustathius upon Dionysius's 
Periegesis. Noris defends himself against this Reproach pag. i zz. of his 
3o Paroenesis. Harduin's Immodesty & Abuse of Learned 5Ien complain'd 
of in the Leipsick Acts for i69o. p. 438. Harduin stole from others, 
particularly from Valesius's notes upon Eusebius. 132. 'et in his Pre- 
face to Pliny he professes a detestation of such Practises. 135. See also 
another Instance of Theft p. 136. & i4o. Notarum in Plinium magnam 
partem surripuisse videtur Harduinus, ex codice nempe quodam à doctis-

without confession. Nay he bas follow'd him in the typographical 
Faults. For whereas the Printers had printed S. Hieronymus in vita 
Hilarij for Hilarionis, Harduin bas quoted it so too. He upbraids Toinard 
for being so tedious in publishing his Historia Herodiadum. This owing 
to lais Deliberation. I68.

Romnham [sic] in Oxfordshire. This Dr. was an old curmudgeon, of an 
unsettled Head, a great Pretender to Learning, and by his way of Living 
scrap'd up a great Deal of Noney. He had two Daughters, the Elder of 
xeh was married three or four years since to Nf. Winder's Eldest son of 
13ullocks Hatch near Windsor. The Doctor was remarkable for keeping 
up to the only Proverb of the County of Berks that the vicar of Bray will 
be vicar of Bray still, for which he is particularly noted by honest Tom 
40 Brown in His Preface to his Dialogue between David Jones, lI r. Hickering- 
hill and William Prynn's Ghost. He was reported to have a very good 
smdy of Books, but I believe 'twill rail very much of the Character. He 
has two Sermons in print, preach'd at Assizes, weh serinons contradict 
one another. A little belote died D r. Cawley Rector of Henly in Oxford-

but of a temper inclined to Law Suits, wch run him into Debt and brought

Gentleman truly deserving of prefemaent as being endued with modesty, 
Parts and Scholarship. He has done eminent service to the Republick 
of Letters by putting out Homer's Odysses, two or three Pieces of 
Grotius, Epictetus, and a neat Edition of Ignatius's Epistles done from 
the lXlSg in Greek at Florence. w ch Edition however of Ignatius does not 
interfere with the beautifull and accurate Edition of the saine Apostolical

Sept. 3 (Bat.). Iii one of these volumes I have put down Langius's

omachia, w ch I thought might bave been of some use to M r. Barnes in his 
new :Edition of Holner, now very forward in thc Press at Cambridge. I 
bave since look'd into this Book, & find that the Batrachom. is printed 
here in the modern Greck, and the old Greek omitted, & that the Author 
has ruade no Emendations. The intire Book it selfis trite, and seems to 
bave very few if any uscfull observations. -- M r. Thwaites tells me he is of 
opinion that in verse 160. of Dionysius's Periegesis for «rbç is to be read 
o evr(,v. ]Sut as this is contrary to the MSS. so is against all the Editions, 
and Mapps, and the Scope of the Author, as it seems to me. & is no better 
than his Conjectures upon sonie Places of Livy, towards the ]Seginning, 
veh he enter'd in the Margin of the Oxford Edition. These I saw before 
that Edition came out, & I consider'd them, and found that none of thern 
were to be approv'd of, he taking too great a Liberty, and indulging too 
much to his Fancy ; but what is worst of ail he has struck in some Places 
several Lines together out of this Excellent Historian, as being, in his 
opinion, nothing but Interpolations. Wch method of correcting an author 
is bold, and daring, and ridiculous. Yet his Frend Stevens the Scotch-

Nature ; but this is no wonder since both these Gentlemen are nmch of

hec gave about sixscore pounds : of w ea easy bargaine hec has found a mighty 
advantage already, & will bec continually adding to it : hec having sold several 
thousands of copyes. And I doubt not, but that hec would get vastly by the 
Exposition, if his copy were entire. But D . Stanly, Nephew to the Author, 
retaines by him the Exposition ofnine ofthe Articles, w ch at present at least hee 
wil by no meanes, or upon any consideration, part with : pretending, that lais

Se:pe. 8 ('lh.). There is just publish'd a ]3ook in 8 vo. containing 
Essays and Serinons, by Williana Whiston A.II. and Professor of Astro- 
nonay at Canabridge. 'Tis a most pernicious Book, conaprehending 
30 several strange Doctrines about the Trinity, and odd Explications of 
Scripture, particularly of points of the greatest naonaent. He has also laid 
down Rules for study of Divinity, and given a Catalogue of such Books 
as he would have read. He is a Despiser of naodern Conanaentators, and 
would have young divines go to the Fountaine Head, and frona thence 
draw Explications of the Scriptures thenaselves, without depending upon 
or even regarding late Expositors, tho' never so good. Which lIethod 
of study if practis'd vould soon naake a vast nunaber of Hereticks and 
Schisnaaticks, and, 'tis to be fear'd, a great naany of our Divines would 
prove as bad as 5I r. Whiston hirnself. He has noxv in 5IS. a Discourse 
40 about the Trinity, w eh I do hOt question but he will publish as soon as 
possible. He tells us 'ris at present in the Hands of soine great Divines, 
who are to read it over and alter it if they think fit. One of these Great 
Divines is the Archbp. of Canterbury ; but I ana afraid sonae of these 
great Sien countenance this bold and Heretical writer. 'Tis said D r. 
Grabe is to answer hina ; & indeed he bas reported in Oxford hinaself that 
he has been desir'd to do it. If he does, I doubt he will naake but an 
indifferent piece of work of it, he having sonae odd Notions hiinself, and 
besides he is far froin being a rational or a clear writer, as naay partly 
appear frona his Additions to Bv. Bull's works, .eh are nothing conaparable

XVhiston's late book with abundance of indignation ; hears that Dr. Grabe 
designs, at the instigation of the Archbp. of York, to answer this bold and 
heterodox writer. G. a man of no smali vanity and far from a clear and a 
rationai writer, though he has deserved highly from religion and the republic 


proper to be put in the work and what hot ; and therefore he prints the 
Annotations of ail those that have written upon this Author at large, hot 
omitting even Hervetus's large Commentary, w ch is fit for none but 
Novices and such as love scholastic Writers. He has also heap'd up 
a vast deal of notes collected from Philosophical writers and others, w ela 
I suppose he will also call a Commentary, just as he bas his 6ff-raff notes 
upon Lycophron, w ela might very well have been spared, there being 
hardly anything of moment in them but what had been before taken 
notice of by IXIeursius. Nor are his Greek Antiquities any better, there 
being hot one new observation, by w da one may discover anything in him 
of true Learning. And tho' his Engli.h book concerning the Church be 
much cry'd up by the Party, yet those that have read it considerately, & are 
unbyass'd, and know how to judge fairly will tell )-ou the whole was done 
before in short by Archbp. Usher. However by this loose and voluminous 
way of writing this Gentleman bas rais'd a Reputation, w eh is no wonder 
since amongst Readers there are so few Judges. A shew of Learning 
passes with them for profoundness, and Quotations at second Hand for 
great Diligence and general Reading. -- Londini nuperrime prodijt

Sept. 12 (lV£on.). The), are printing at the Theater-Press 
Beverege's Exposition upon the XXXIX Articles of the Church of 
England. Mr. Rich. Smith a London Bookseller bought all the IISS. 
Papers of the Bp's Executor for the sure of 3 score Pounds, by wch he 
bas ruade a very considerable Gain, having already printed several 
volumes of Serinons and other Tracts, of w,.tt a great many Thousands 
bave already been bought up, and the sale continues brisk still. But for 
this Exposition, the 9 last Articles are hOt corne into the Bookseller's 
tIands as )'et, the Executor being unwilling to part with them because, he 
says, the Bp. design'd these Discourses only for his own private use and 
hot for the publick : xvhich whether true or no I cannot tell. I ana apt 
however to think that he had hot put his last hand to them, and those 
that look after the Press ought to be particularly carefull about the whole, 
& to see there be nothing inserted tbat will at all redound to the dis- 
honour of the Church of England, wch some are fearfull of, because 
it was observ'd that the Bv. (notwithstandin his great Learning) was 
formerly in some Degrees a Calvinist. The Bookseller having not been 
able to procure the latter part of the Exposition, he is resolv'd to print 
the first Article b)" itself as a specimen, and accordingly 'tis now going on 
by the tare of one lIr. Hili a large Fellow of Queen's College. -

Ingulphus Historicus perperam nonnullis Indulphus dicitur ..... I have 
by me The Georgicks of ttesiod translated elaborately out of Greek into 
English by George Chapman, pr. at London in a rhin Quarto in 16  8. 
There was another Chapman, (descended from this George Chapman, 
as is suppos'd,) a Pretender to Poëtry. He liv'd in mad Earl of Rochester's 
Time, and being at the Bath when the Earl was there, and Queen 
Catherine being in the Cross-Bath, he the said Chapman ruade the 
following verses upon that Bath: 
fo The Naine of Cross quite lost it hath, 
If shall be call'd Queea Catherine's Bath. 
To which Rochester reply'd: 
The Naine of Cross not lost it hath, 
Capinan's the changling not the Bath. 
But as for George Chapman the Translator of the Georgicks he was 
always reckon'd amongst some of the best of out English Poëts. He 
flourish'd in the rime ofK. Jam. & K. Ch. I. and died 2 May. i634. in 
the 77th Year of his Age, and had a monument erected to his Memory at the 
charge of his 'eat Friend and Admirer Inigo Jones. He was buried in the 
2o Yard on the South s,.'de of the church of Sk Giles in the Fields. He bas 
been highly celebrated for his excellent Translation of Homer. There 
was one Henry Çhapman of Magd. Hall in Oxon. who was admitted 
toaster of Arts, he being then advanc'd in years, by order of the Presby-

his being recommended by testimonial Letters from D r. John Wallis, the

of the said PAlace by gift of Edw. II.) built a Bell-Tower or ]3ell-Fery,

Printed at Ansterdam. I)edicated to the I)uke of Wittemberg, who was 
pleas'd to take early notice of the Author upon account of his forward 
Parts & laudable Industry. The Author thinks that there are a great 
many very antient IISS. of the New Test. as yet preserved in the East, 
w eh if consulted all corruptions of these sacred Books might be heal'd. 
ttis chier design in the 13ook is against the I)eists, shewing that this 
variety of Lections does hOt make for then, since there are so very fev 
of them wch are nlaterial, and those w ch are do not relate to the doctrines 
of Religion. Le Clerk has a Book in 1USS. upon this Subject, & also a 
Discourse upon some Texts sent hin by N r. Lock. lI r. Pfaff wishes 
they may both be published. But I wish otherwise, lIr. Le Clerk & Lock 
having been both of ill Principles. 

In pag. 8. l,I r. Dodwcll cited about St. [gnatius's not distinguishing rightly 
betxveen the genuine Gospel of St. !Matthew, and the interpolated one rnade 
use of by the Ebionites. P. 22. He does not approve of what D r. Srnith says 
de Prologo Hieronymi in Epistolas Catholicas. Yet agrees with D r. Smith & 
D r. 1Uill about the words of St. Joh. Ep. i. v. 7. Hobbes of opinion that the 
Canon of the New Test. was hot settled 'till after the 3 first Centuries. p. 24. 
gl r. Dodwell of opinion that tle Canon was establish'd not very soon, but 
2o confuted by Basnage. P. 24. Basnage has also some Errors in that particular. 
ibid. Toland of gl r. Dodwell's opinion, ibid. But confuted by Richardson, as 
also is Basnage, & by an anonylnous Author. P. 5- That Anonymous Author 
was Stephen Nye, a lnan of Learning. ibid. Robert Jenkins's Reasons about 
the Antiquity of the Canon of the New Testament commended, p. 26. (Q.u.œere 
whether this Robert Jenkins wa.s nota Non-Juror). In pag. 28 a passage out 
of Ignatius's Epistle ad Philadelph. The Author of this Dissertation of opinion 
that dpXda is the truc Reading not apXa as in the Medicean IS . ¥ssius 
also of that opinion (as is also D r. Srnith} in his Notes upon the Place, tho' in 
his Responsio ad objectiones nuperœe criticœe sacrœe he is for àpxa«. lb. p. 29. 
3o Hieronymus le Camus vel & S. Fide a feign'd name for Father Sirnon. under that 
Name F. $imon's Judicium de nupera Is. l'ossi ad iteratas Simonij objectiones 
sponsione carne out. p. 30. Father Sirnon has plainly shewn that dpxe'm is the truc 
Reading. ibid. D r. Smith's Interpretation of Ignatius's words produc'd pag. 
3l.'AOtgra for Ortgra to be read. p. 32. So also D r. Slnith. But D r. Nicholls 
conjectures /rqrra, absurdly, l,l r. Pfaff approves of ]r. Dodwell's Interpre- 
tation of ye Place in his Parœenesis §. 23- wCh he has transcrib'd at large, and calls 
1I r. Dodwell vir stupendoe eruditionis, p. 3*.--In pag. 4, 4 -. He takes notice 
that St. Paul was the prirnary Author of St. Luke's Gospel, for w eh some 
reason may be gather'd from 2 Tire. iv.  r. This is certain that these words 
4 ° o 6 dp7drqç rof IOoî aroï grt occur in  Tim. v. 8 & Luc. x. 7. (I 
relnember that several years since l,l r. Dodwell gave me a notable Remark 
coneerning these words, & desir'd me, I being then at Shottesbrook transcrib- 
ing his Parœenesis, to comrnunicate the Observation to l,l r. Grabe, then about 
his Spicilegium ; w eh accordingly I did by a Letter written to l,l r. Blilles, now 
Bp. of Waterford; but I believe Milles never told him of it, & hot putting 
down the Memorandurn in any other place I have now quite forgot it). The 
original Copies of the Test. as well as old all lost. p. 44. Yet none continu'd 
so long as that of St. John's Gospel. ibid. 'Twas preserv'd in the Church of 
Ephesus till the 4 th Century. So Peter Alexandrinus, cited by Petavius in his 
50 Uranolog. f. 397. of opinion that they were call'd Catholick epistles because 
written to luany churches, and for that reason to be cominunicated to them, 
tho' D r. 1Uill denyes this coimnunication of the Catholick Epistles. ibid. p. 48. 
Yet the D . brings no reason for his opinion, ibid. l,I r. Pfaff hot of 1I r. Dod- 
well's opinion in his Parœenesis §. 34. that these Epistles were Apostolical 
writings & writings of the Archetypal & heavenly church, ibid. nor does he

believe that the catholick church is that w ch triumphs in Heaven. ibid. p. 49. 
bi r. Dodwell of opinion that the Authentical Hebrew Copy of St. hIatthew's 
Gospel is referr'd to by St. Ignatius ad Philadelph. §. viii. Sec his Paroen. 
P- 99- The copy of St. hlarc's Gospel at Veniee doubtfull from the Eaten and 
worn Fragments now remaining x'hether written in Latin or Greek. p. 5. 
So those who have consulted it. ibid. (Yet I remember that ]I r. lIaximilian 
lIisson in lais traveils after a great deai of poring and comparing severai scraps 
together infen-'d it to be written in Greek.) The Roman IIS t older & pre- 
ferable to the Alexandrian one. p. 53. & therefore what D '. hIill says of it as 
being of no great Authority is very rash & unjust, ibid. p. 53.--D r. hIill upon xo 
that aecount was hot very sollieitous in collecting the variations of it. ibid. 
And therefore without doubt his work on that score is very imperfeet, ibid. 
He follows in that point Father Simon, whom he also in other Places follows 
too much. ibid. The Roman copie xvritten x2oo years since, & so D r. hIill 
elsewhere of opinion, p. 54. D r. Grabe aimost of y saine opinion with D '. 
hIill, ibid. Schelstrate thinks 'twas written x4oo years since. It certainly 
agrees with ye Letters in the Statue of Hippolytus. p. 55. The Alexandrian 
hISS. written, according to D , Grabe a little before the year .96, or not long 
after. D r. hlill hot aceurate in collating the Alexandrian hIS t. He depended 
at first upon Huiss's Collations. Afterwards he collated himself, and added his o 
New Observations in the Appendix. Yet negligently, as appears even from a 
considerable Reading in Apoealyps. xxii.  i. The common Books have 
«firo. But the Alex. IIS. has aoo-;vÇv roÇ«fir. This Lection (w ch is valu- 
able} omitted both by Huis & lIill, yet observ'd by D r. Bull in Harm. Apostol.

Prolegom. from lIonfaueon's Diar. Ital. p. 3o8. about Perron's IIS t. D r, 
lIill has very few Lections out of the IISS t in ye Emperor's Library, w eh 
however he might have obtain'd with Ease. p. 85. He has given the Lections 
of one (riz. num. xxviii.) in the Appendix to his Testam t. but his Aceount of 
it is very unaccurate in Proleg. p. 367. a. For it contains the 'hole N. Test. 4 ° 
& the Apocalypse is hot 'anting, as D r. lIill insinuates. ,uï. 'Tis hot written 
in capitals Letters, as he says. 3uY. 'twas not San-George Ashe that collated 
the Book for D r. lIill but Gerard van lIastrieht, who communicated them to 
Ashe. p. 86. Boeeler had a most Excellent lISt of the New Test. the Leetions 
whereof were never yet gather'd, tho' perhaps Boecler might follow it in his 
]ïdition of the N. Test. 66o (what this Author 1I*'. Pfaff has said abt IISS. is 
ail taken from D r. 11ill & others, & he seems to have little or no skili himself, 
nor to have seen hardly any IISS. He appears also empty & shallow in most 
things.) D r. Iill collated very little of what the Bp. of Ely has. I know hot 
for what reason. See pag. ioo. D r. lIill finds fauR with Robert Stephens br 5o 
hot giving us ail the Lections of the IISS. ruade use of by him ; but without 
reason, p. xo5. The New Testament printed at Paris in 64z with a great 
number of Lections, w eh Edition is pass'd by by D r. lIill p. io. Jo. Saubert, 
not Salbert as F. Simon and D r. lIill call him, put out a very good Ed. of the 
new Test. at Helmestadt in 67z» x,,here he has gin'en a very good Judgment 
of the Lections collected by him. p.  io. The Lections colleeted by Zaeag- 
nius, w eh are very considerable, omitted quite by D r. lIill, w eh is to be won- 
der'd at. p.   u. The Author commends D r. lIill's Diligence and Learning.

D r. IIill had a design of printing another Edition of the New Test. from the 
Alexandrian, Cambridge, Bodlejan & Claromontan IISS. exactly, p.  i4.-- 
So D r. Bentley relis us in his Epistle to D r. Mill ; but D r. Mill seems after-
