horn at Dunse, Berwickshire, 1724. After serv-t
ing his time to a surgeon at Edinburgh, he served
in that capacity in the army, but on the restora-

and settled s a ph ran in London‘; where, how-
ever, he principally supported himself by writing
for the booksellers. In 1758 he pub ed a trans-

defamed him and his work in the Critical Review.

‘ The Sugar Cane,’ which was well received. The
same year he printed ‘An Essay on XVest India
Diseases.’ After a short residence in England, he
returned to St. Christopher’s,wliere he resumed
practice. He died at Basseterre 24 Dec., 1767.

‘Ode to Solitude ;’ the ballad of Bryan and
