His Lordship had not been in town for more than two years previous to his death. The Noble Earl was equally remarkable for the virtues of the nobleman and the Christian, and may be justly said to have fulfilled all the duties implied by his motto-A Deo et Rege.

18 years of age, acted, in 1748, as Assistant to Dr J. Gregory, then Professor of Philosophy in King's College; and upon the resignation of that gentleman, in the ensuing year, succeeded to the vacant chair. In 1764, he was chosen Sub Principal; and in 1800 was unanimously elected Principal by his colleagues. Whether we regard the character of Dr Macleod in his private or public capacity, it will be admitted that few men have more faithfully discharged the duties of their station. In the most delicate connection of life, tender and affectionate; as a parent, indulgent, but firm; as a friend, active, warm, and constant-he lived but for this circle. Yet were his more general relations to society never forgotten. His zealous and close attention to whatever involved the honour or interest of the body, with which, for the unusual period of 67 years, he stood connected, will long be acknowledged; whilst, by his able and conscientious discharge of his duties as a public teacher for 52 years, and above all, by the active and liberal protection which he uniformly extended to rising or neglected me. rit, he' perhaps as effectually promoted the best interest of education and science, as any individual of his time.

With his learning he united much knowledge of the world; he was a man of the most gentlemanly manners. He was a correct and judicious preacher; and was uniformly distinguished by the liberality of his theological opinions.
