APPENDIX

TO THR

LIFE OF MILTON.

IT is related by Mr. Warton, that, "in the University Statutes at Oxford, compiled in 1635, ten years after Milton's admiffion at Cambridge, corporal punishment is to be inflicted on boys under fixteen. We are to recollect, that Milton, when he went to Cambridge, was only a boy of fifteen," See the Life, p. xi. But Milton was in his ferventeenth year, when he was admitted at Chrift's College. See the Life, p. viii. And if the fame exemption was granted to boys of fixteen at Cambridge, as to thofe of the fame age at Oxford, the flagellation of Milton becomes ftill less entitled to credit. One of the ftatutes of Christ's College, entitled Cap. 37. De Le&oris Authoritate in Difcipulos, feems to countenance the fuppofition of fimilar exemption: After prefcribing that they, who absent themselves from certain Lectures, fhall be fined, the Statute fubjoins the following refervation; "fi tamen adultus fuerit ; alioquin, virgâ corrigatur.”

In the note, p. xlii, for Spinftow, read Spurflow.

The fpirited lines of Dr. George, mentioned in p, cxxxvii, and referred to in the fixth volume, have been alfo ascribed, as I have been informed, to the Hon. Thomas Townshend, father of the late Lord Sidney.

The verfes, faid to be written by Mr. Keith, and noticed in the fame page, as well as in the fixth volume, occur in the edition of Vincent Bourne's Poems, printed in 1772. In an earlier edition of Bourne, which I have seen, they are not, however, to be found.

To the modern engravings of the poet, mentioned in this and the following pages, may be added an interefting one by Mr. Silvefter Harding from a painting in the poffeffion of the late Lord Orford.
