No. III.

Intended + Epitaph at Kingston, near Canterbury.

Rev. Gul. Dejovas Byrche, A.M.
Ævi, in quo vixit, decus et ornamentum; $
Suavitatis indolis, candoris, ac benevolentiæ,

omnibus exemplar.
Linguarum tam hodiernarum, quam anti-

quarum scientia,

paucis cessit,
rebus mathematicis, ac pietate non ficta,

Corporis infirmi diu incola,
carceris tandem impatiens,
Cælum versus avolavit

die Martis 70, ætatis 62,

Salutis 1792
Ad memoriam tam chari capitis conservandam,
Elizabetha-illius vidua mærens,


Gent. Mag. Vul. lxvi. p. 807. + This seems to me preferable to the epitaph which has since been placed on Ms. Byrche's monument in the above church.

1 Gent. Mag. Vol. lxii. p. 411. f These words are a little extravagant ; as Mr. Byrche, from diffidence, or some other cause, 'never exhibited either his learning or his talents to the public, which is much to be lamented, since they were undoubtedly of a very high kind: and nothing could exceed the goodness'of his heart and disposition.

Here lie the remains
of the Rev. James Hervey, A. M.
late rector of this parish;

that very pious man,
and much-admired author ! :

who died Dec. 25th, 1758,

in the 45th year of his age.
Reader, expect no more; to make him known
Vain the fond elegy and figur'd stone:
A name more lasting shall his writings give;
There view display'd his heavenly soul, and live. $

The husband of Cowper's Mary, and father to his correspondents the Rev. W. Unwin.

By J. H.7 Esquire. Printed in the Yeare 1645.

Some of the reflections in this little volume have considerable merit. For politicall bodies, as well as naturall, have their degrees of age, declinings, and periods; which I cannot so properly tearm periods, as successions, or vicissitudes. Commonweals have often turned to kingdomes, and realms have been cut out into republicks; the ruine of one, being still the raysing of the other; as one foot cannot be lifted up, till the other be down: witnesse those foure mighty monarchies, which were as spokes upon Fortune's
