the letter on the Logos contains the result of investigations in which he had only very recently engaged, and the statement of opinions he had just embraced. In 1733, appeared the first volume of the second part of the Credibility of the Gospel History. The main object of this extensive and most valuable work is, to collect inail the historic evidence of the Christian scriptures, occupies in the original edition twelve volumes. The first of these, as we have already stated, appeared in 1733; and the succeeding volumes followed at various intervals as they were completed, the whole not being brought to a conclusion till the year 1755. The last volume testimony that he who could inspire such a sentiment must have been not unworthy of it. Besides our author, he had one other son, Richard, a barrister, who died in 1733; and one daughter, married to Mr. Daniel Neal, well known for his History of New England, and still more for his History of the Puritans.

ant; a publication to which several other eminent dissenters of that day were occasional contributors. To these were added, in a later edition, a defence of the Brief Account, a Narrative of the cruel treatment of Dr. Leighton, by Archbishop Laud, and an ingenious Essay on the Belief of Things which are above Reason. This last contains as distinct and satisfactory a statement of the argument for the rational opinion on this subject as is any where to be met with in so small a compass. In 1733 appeared the Paraphrase and Notes on the first Epistle to Timothy and the Epistle to Titus, which were followed in the succeeding year by the second Epistle to Timothy; thus completing, when taken in connexion with the previous labours of Locke and Peirce, the entire series of St. Paul's writings. To these were added dissertations on inspiration,—on the abolition of the ceremonial part of the Mosaic law, and on the settlement of the primitive church. Our author's account of the inspiration

s hasty, confused letter. You may by it, at least, see I am most willing to revive and improve our old love and acquaintance. Pray, sir, let me hear from you, as soon as your business will permit; and you shall find me always ready, according to my leisure, to deal with you in this epistolary traffic. May All-sufficiency bless, protect, guide, guard, and prosper you in spirituals and temporals, is the hearty prayer of, Your affectionate, John Taylor. Kirkstead, April 29th, 1724. In 1733, a larger sphere of usefulness, and the opportunity of making his talents honourably known to the world, were afforded Mr. Taylor by his removal to Norwich. Here he found a congregation much more suited to his tastes; and already actuated by a liberality of views and feelings, which disposed them to leave him unshackled by any confessions or subscriptions to human creeds, and not only free to pursue the unbiassed suggestions of his own understanding, in his search after religious truth, but

several years afterwards conducted an academy at Whitehaven, was the preceptor of Taylor of Norwich, Benson, Rotheram, Winder of Liverpool, and several others well known in the succeeding age as decided Arians, we seem authorized to infer that he had himself a leaning towards the same principles. Little is known (at least we have not been able to meet with any record) of his early history. In 1719 he quitted Whitehaven to settle at Bolton in Lancashire, where he remained till his death, in 1733. It is not known that any production of his found its way before the public. His son, Mr. Thomas Dixon, was educated under the care of Dr. Rotheram, at Kendal, and in 1751 settled at Bolton, on the decease of his father's successor, Mr. Buck. Here he died in 1754, at the early age of thirty-three; non annis, sed laude plenus, according to the inscription on his monument in Bolton Chapel. Some years after his death an excellent piece of Scripture criticism was published from his papers, en

e of Benson. He was instructed in classical learning by Mr. Anthony Ireland, at that time master of the free Grammar School at Blencowe, and pursued his academical studies, preparatory to the exercise of the Christian ministry, under the direction of Dr. Dixon, at Whitehaven. In the year 1716, he accepted an invitation from the Protestant dissenting congregation at Kendal, and became their stated pastor; a station in which he remained through life. Nothing is recorded of him till the year 1733; but we cannot doubt that, as he continued the useful but uniform and noiseless tenor of his way, in the diligent discharge of the duties of his office, he advanced in reputation as in years; for at this period, in compliance with the request of many of the most eminent among the Dissenters, both ministers and laity, he began an academy for the instruction of youth in various branches of useful literature, but principally with a view to qualify them for the ministerial office.
