SACRED TO THE MEMORY

OF
MATTHEW BOLTON, F. R. S.
BLESSED BY THE KINDNESS OF PROVIDENCE
WITH PROSPERITY, HEALTH, AND LENGTH OF DAYS,
HE WAS REGARDED BY THE POOR AS THEIR PROTECTOR,

BY THE INDUSTRIOUS AS THEIR EMPLOYER,
AND BY THE SKILFUL AS THEIR PATRON;

HE WAS BELOVED BY HIS FRIENDS

FOR THE BENEVOLENCE OF HIS DISPOSITION;
HE WAS RESPECTED BY ALL HIS NUMEROUS CONNECTIONS

FOR THE RECTITUDE OF HIS MORAL CONDUCT ;
AND IN HIS OWN AND FOREIGN COUNTRIES

HE WAS JUSTLY CELEBRATED
FOR THE ELEGANCE OF HIS TASTE
AND THE INGENUITY OF HIS INVENTIONS.

WITH FEELINGS OF SINCERE AND JUST RESPECT
FOR THE CULTIVATED UNDERSTANDING
AND THE EXALTED RANK

OF
THE DUKE OF SUSSEX,

DR. PARR REQUESTS

THAT HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS
WOULD BE PLEASED TO ACCEPT THIS LITTLE BOOK,
AS A TRIBUTE OF DUTIFUL ATTACHMENT,

AND OF GRATITUDE UNFEIGNED,

WITH WHICH HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS
HAS CONDESCENDED TO HONOUR DR. PARR.

ILLUSTRATIONS

OF THE

PRECEDING INSCRIPTIONS ;

To which are added the names of places where they were set up,

as correctly noted as could be obtained,-still, it is feared, imperfectly.

Page 559. The inscription for Dr. Thackeray was solicited by his learned descendant the present Dr. Thackeray of Chester. It was never, we believe, inscribed on his tomb.

: Page 560. Written on the fly-leaf of the Aristarchus of Vossius. It is probably the earliest specimen of Dr. Parr's composition in this style of writing now to be found; having been written while he was an under-graduate at Emanuel college. A learned friend of the Editor suggests, that the word TANTUM, in line 5, must be an error of the transcriber.

Page 561. In the chancel of Hatton Church, to the memory of Dr. Parr's immediate predecessor in that Cure.

Page 562. : On a mural tablet in the Church of Harrow on the Hill.
