THE

ECLECTIC REVIEW,

For FEBRUARY, 1818.

Art. I. Anecdotes of the Life of Richard Watson, Bishop of Landaf:

Written by Himself at different Intervals, and revised in 1814. Published by his Son, Richard Watson, LL.B. Prebendary of Landaff and Wells. 4to. pp. 551. Price 21. 125. 6d. London.

1817. THIS is certainly the most valuable piece of auto-biography

that has been presented to the world, since Bishop Burnet's account of bis own Times, and it will deservedly rank with the intelligent and impartial narrative of that upright historian, among the most important illustrations of our national annals. The life of Bishop Watson was spent in honourable and patriotic exertion. That it was protracted to so advanced an age, is in itself a pleasing consideration ; but when he is regarded as the contemporary memorialist of nearly a century, the circumstance rises in importance, and the natural veneration ija spired by a green old age, is heightened by our feeling as if it was preserved for his country, in order that, at this crisis, invested with all the majesty of death, he might utter in the ears of the senate and people of England, truths which it peculiarly behoves them to hear, but which otherwise might scarcely obtain a hearing: Whatever diversity of opinion may

. prevail as to the public and religious character of the illustrious individual in other respects, bis competent knowledge of the events he records, as well as his veracity, is unquestionable; and when to these important requisites, we add those of a more than ordinary acuteness of faculty, and independence of mind, together with what, judging from the indications of the work before us, we should conceive to be not less due to him, the merit of unaffected candour, we have portrayed a man as completely qualified as he well could be, for the task he has undertaken. The following is the account wbich his Lordship gives of the origin of the publication. • It has been a custom with me, from a very early age, to put Vol. IX. N. S.
