INSCRIPTIONS ON THE MONUMENTS OF DR JOHNSON
AND MR HOWARD.

DR JOHNSON'S. THE liberality of the prefent age has at length opened the noble fabric of St Paul's Cathedral for the reception of monuments for those who have eminently diftinguished themfelves by their virtues or their talents, or by fervices rendered to their country. It has long been a general complaint that Wefminster Abbey is over-crowded; and lefs difcrimination has been exercifed in the felection of thofe for whom these memorials have been admitted. From the regulations laid down by the Dean and Chapter of St Paul's, this laft fault is not likely to be repeated in their Cathedral. Circumftances make it evident that Sir Christopher Wren forefaw that the noble pile he was erecting would become at fome period a new Temple of Fame, and he accordingly conftructed it to answer that end. Of the two eminent perfons who firft are admitted into it, Mr HowARD and Dr JOHN

SON, each is entitled to the honour done to his memory. The ftatue of Dr Johnson exhibits grandeur and elevation of mind, fuch as pofterity will expect to find the characteristics of this fublime Moralift. The workmanship confers honour on Mr Bacon; and the following Epitaph by Dr Parr, if it adds little, will not detract from the reputation of that eminent scholar.

INSCRIPTION ON MR HOWARD'S.

This Extraordinary Man
Had the fortune to be honoured, whilst living,
In the manner which his Virtues deferved.
He received the Thanks

Of both Houfes of the British and Irish
Parliaments,

For his eminent Services rendered to his Coun-
try and Mankind.

Our National Prisons and Hofpitals, Improved upon the fuggeftion of his Wifdom, Bear teftimony to the folidity of his Judge. ment,

And to the estimation in which he was held In every part of the Civilized World, Which he traverfed to reduce the fum of Human Mifery.

From the Throne to the Dungeon, his Name
was mentioned

With refpect, gratitude, and admiration!
His Modesty alone

Defeated various efforts that were made during
his life,
To erect this Statue,

[ocr errors]
[ocr errors]

Which the Public has now confecrated to his
Memory!

He was born at Hackney, in the County of
Middlefex, Sept. 2, 1726.
The early part of his life he spent in retire-
ment,

Refiding principally on his Paternal Estate
at Cardington, in Bedfordshire,
For which County he ferved the Office of
Sheriff in the year 1773.
He expired at Cherfon, in Ruflian Tartary,
On the 20th January 1790;

A Victim to the perilous and benevolent attempt

To ascertain the cause of, and find an effica-
cious Remedy for the Plague.
He trod an open, but unfrequented, path to
Immortality,

In the ardent and unintermitted exercise of
Christian Charity.

May this Tribute to his Fame Excite an emulation of his truly glorious Atchievements.
