to pray for the faithful departed. Now, it is clear that Wesley made one at least of these rules in the early part of his life, when Law was 'a sort of oracle with him ;' for the attempt to carry out the first of them was one of the causes of his troubles in Georgia. Law has expressed himself strongly against the Scripture baptism of the whole body under water being only, as it were, mimicked by scattering a few drops of water on a new-born child's face.'! It seems to me highly probable that the three rules came from the same source, viz. Mr. Law; and, if so, then we see that Mr. Law agreed with the Usagers ' in two out of the four points for which they contended.

Two or three other points may here be conveniently noted :

(1) My attention has been called by a friend to the fact that in referring to Gay's pastorals in p. 62 I have not mentioned that they were burlesques. I was aware of the fact, but did not notice it because it did not affect the main point-viz., Gay's talents for that species of composition.

(2) An absurd erratum occurs in the note to p. 137. For 'never' read ' much.'

(3) Another point has occurred to me which seens to be a presumptive proof that Mr. Law entered Mr. Gibbon's family as tutor to his son earlier than the date commonly given (1727). Why did Mr. Gibbon, a High Churchman, and all but a Jacobite, send his son to Emmanuel, a Puritan foundation? If Law, the quondam fellow of Emmanuel, was the much-honoured friend of the family' before Mr. Gibbon's son was entered at Emmanuel, nothing is more natural than that, in spite of his predilections, he should have chosen, perhaps on Law's recommendation, a college which had trained so worthy a man.

(4) As an amusing illustration of the sway which Law exercised over his friends at Cliffe, I may mention a tradition that during Law's lifetime the ladies dressed in the severely simple style recommended in the . Serious Call,' but that after his death the feminine love of finery broke out. Miss Gibbon appeared resplendent in yellow stockings, and Miss Mary Law (Law's favourite niece) had a new dress every month.
