BRIEF SKETCH OF DR. WATTS.

A

A A A ΑΣ A А A A

DR. ISAAC WATTS, a learned and eminent dissenting minister, was borr, at Southampton, 1674, of parents remarkable for piety and virtue. From his infancy, be discovered a strong propensity to learning; and was early distinguished for the sprightliness of his wit ; which, even in the years of younger life, was regulated by a deep sense of religion. At the school at Southampton, he was taught Latin, Greek, and Hebrew; and in 1690 was sent to an academy in London, to complete his education. His tutor declared that during the whole tiine of bis tuition at this academy, he was not only so inoffensive as never to give occasion for reproof; but so exemplary that he often proposed bim as a pattern io his other pupils.

In 1696, he was invited by Sir John Hartopp, to reside in his famiJy at Stoke Newington, as tutor to his son

Here he continued about four years: and acquitted himself with fidelity and reputation. Believing it to be his duty, he determined to devote his life to the pastoral office, of the importance of which, he had a deep sense upon his mind. He began to preach on his birth-day, 1695, when he had completed his 34th year; and he met with general acceptance.

In 1712, he had a severe fever, which, by its violence and continuance, reduced him so much that he never perfectly recovered. The languishing state of his health drew upon him the attention of Sir Thomas Abney, who received him into his house; where, with a constancy of friendship and uniformity of conduct not often to be found, he was treated for thirty six years, with all the kindness that friendship could prompt, and all the attention that respect could dictate. From the time of his reception in this family, bis life was no otherwise diversified than by successive labours for the good of mankind; the number and variety of which show the 10tenseness of his industry, and the extent of his capacity. In 1728, the universities of Edinburgh and Aberdeen, without his knowbedse, conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Divinity.

His writings are so numerous, that in this sketch we cannot even give a list of them. They were collected and published in 1734, in 6 vols. quarto. His Lyric Poems, bis Psalms and Hymns, and his Divine Songs for children, are a sufficient proof of his poetical talents. They have had an amazing number of editions. His treatise on Logic, a masterly perfarinance, has been long Used in the most distinguished seminario His "Improvement of the Mini " is an excellent work, which may be recoinmended to all young persons.

This worthy and exemplary man became, towards the end of his days, so infirm that he was confined to his chamber and his bed, where he was worn gradually away, without pain, till be expred in the 75th year of Sis age.
