but he was transferred at an early age to an academy in London, then conducted by Dr. Joshua Oldfield. Here, however, he seems to have remained but a short time; for in 1699, when under sixteen, he was sent to pursue his theological studies at Utrecht; in which university, then enjoying a high celebrity, many of the most distinguished English Nonconformist divines of that period received either the whole or a considerable part of their academical education. In his funeral sermon for Dr. Hu recommend it to the youthful student, except the persuasion that the knowledge thus acquired was, as he expresses it, a price put into the hand (Prov. XVII. 16) of one who knew how to make use of it. After spending more than three years at Utrecht, Mr. Lardner, removed to Leyden, where, however, he remained only about six months, and then returned to England. Where or in what manner the intervening years were spent, till 1709, does not appear; but, from the learning and talents which he

Dr. Chandler hath confessed that he cannot answer Mr. Lowman; and if he cannot, who can? Mr. Lowman was born in London in 1679. He was originally intended for the bar; but soon abandoning all thoughts of that profession, he went to Holland in 1699, and pursued his studies for the Christian ministry at Utrecht and Leyden. In 1710 he was chosen assistant preacher to a dissenting congregation at Clapham, where he continued for the rest of his life, discharging the duties of his station with constancy and regularity, esteemed and beloved by his flock, and respected by all who knew him. Mr. Lowman was one of the contributors to the valuable religious periodical called the Occasional Paper, set on foot by the leading Presbyterian ministers of London in 1716; and which deserves notice, not merely f
