I'm willing to marry my cousin. So pray let's all be friends; she and I are agreed upon the matter before a witness.
Lady W. How's this, dear niece? have I any comfort? can this be true?

Lest mutual falsehood stain the bridal-bed:
RICHARD CUMEERLAND, son of Dr. Denison Cumberland, late Bishop of Kilmore, in Ireland, by Joanna, youngest daughter of the celebrated Dr. Bentley (a lady on whom the well-known pastoral of Phebe, by Dr. Byrom, printed in The Spectator, Nr. 603, was written), and great-grandson of Dr. Richard Cumberland, Bishop of Peterborough, was born February 19, 1752, in the master's lodge of Trinity College, Cambridge, under the 100f of his grandfather Bentley, in what is called the Judge's Chamber, When turned of six years of age, he was sent to the school of bury St. Edmund's, whence he was in due time transplanted to Wes minster. At the age of fourteen Mr. C. was admitted to Trinity College, Cambridge, whence, after a long and assiduous course of study, he launched into the great world, and became a private confidential secretary to Lorp Halifax, then at the head of the Board of Trade; which situation he held with great credit to himzeli, till his Lordship went out of office. Soon after this, he obtained the lay fellowship of Trinity College, vacant by the death of Mr. Titley, the Danish Envoy. This fellowship, however, he did bet hold long; for, on obtaining, through the patronage of Lord Halifax, a small establishment as crown agent for the province of Nova Scotia, he married Elisabeth, only daughter of George Ridge, Esq. of Kilmiston, in Hampshire, in whose family he had long been intimate. When Lord Halifax returned to administration, and was appointed Lord Lientenant of Ireland, Mr. C. went with him to that country, as under-secretary; his father, as one of his chaplains, and his brother in law, Capt. William Ridge, as one of his aides-de-camp Before Lord Halifax quitted Ireland to become Secretary of State, Mr. Cumberland's father had been made Bishop of Clonfert, and Mr. Cumberland himself, who had declined a baronetcy which had been offered him by his patron, came to England with his Lordship, and was appoint ed, we believe, to the situation of assistant secretary to the Board of Trade About the end of the year 1771, the Bishop of Clonfert was translated to Kilmore, which see, however, he held not long, being translated by death to a better world, to which he was followed by his lady in June 1775. The accession of Lord George Germaine to the seals, for the colonial department promoted Mr. Cumberland from a subaltern at the Board of Trade to the post of secretary. In the year 1780 he was sent on a secret and confidential mission to the court of Spain; and it is reported, that his en.bassy would have been successful, but for the riots in London, and the capture of our East-and West-India #ecta, which inspired the Spaniards with more confidence than they had before possessed. In this mission Mr. Cumberland necessarily incurved great expenses; and he was cruelly neglected by the ministers after the conclusion of his negotiation. It was, however, during his residence in that country that he collected the Anccdotes of eminent Ruinters in Spain, which he afterwards published. By the provisions of Mr. Burke's well-known bill, the Board of Trade was anuih
lated, and Mr. Cumberland was set adrift with a compensation of scarcely a moiety in value of what he had been deprived of. He now retired, with his family, to Tunbridge Wells, where he has continued, we believe, over since to reside, universally respected. That a man of such learning, of such versatility of literary talent, such unquestionable genius, and such sound morality, should, in the vale of years," feel the want of what he has lost by his exertions for the public good, must, to every feeling mind, be a subject of keen regret,; yet the fact seems to be placed beyond doubt by the following annunciation of his intention, in 1809, to publish a to volume of his dramas: "To the Public was my purpose to have reserved these MSS. for the eventual use and advantage of a beloved daughter after my decease; but the circumstances of my story, which are before the public, and to which I can appeal without a blush, make it needless for me to state why I am not able to fulfil that purpose: I therefore now, with full reliance on the candour and protection of my countrymen at large, solicit their subscription to these unpublished dramas; conscious as I am, that neither in this instance, nor in any other through the course of my long-continued labours, have I wilfully directed the humble talents, with which God has endowed me, otherwise than to his service, and the genuine interests (so far as I understood them) of benevolence and virtue, Richard Cumberland."
