* Dr. Bottock obtained the Canonry of Windsor without a patron, and without the least prospect, in the carly part of his life, of attaining to it. When a Minor Canon of Windsor, at the crisis ot a contested election for that borough, between Mr. Rowley and the late Mr. Fox, aficrwards Lord Holland, it happened that Dr. Balthazar Rezis, Canon, died. Dr. Bostock, then Vicar of New Windfor, went to Mr. Fox, flattered him with the great alistance he could lend him, but, knowing the nicety on which the electica hung, told him such aftillance depended on his procuring him the vacant Itall: Mr. la having drawn on ihe Treasury to the extreme, and knowing that a fingle vote was of the utmolt consequence, fent express to the Minister, to inform him, that unless Mr. Boflock was appointed Canon he thrould lose his feat for Windsor. The meilenger brought back, the tidings of the reverend gentleman's preferment. Mr. Fox did get his election, bul save his own single vore, little advantage further was made of Mr. Boltock's promise. He enjoyed it near thirty years, and may be said through life to have been the most lucky man that ever entered into it. He lucceeded the late Mr. Burchett in the rectory of Clewer, and on the death of Bilhop Ewer, was, by the Dean and Chapter appointed to the living of Illey.
