Lord Shaftesbury's _Letters to a young Man at the University_, on

which Mr. SINGER has addressed to you an interesting communication
(Vol. ii., p. 33.), were reprinted in 1746 in a collection of his letters,
"_Letters of the Earl of Shaftesbury, author of the Characteristicks,
collected into one volume_: printed MDCCXLVI." 18mo. This volume
contains also Lord Shaftesbury's letters to Lord Molesworth, originally
published by Toland, with an introduction which is not reprinted; a
"Letter sent from Italy, with the notion of the Judgment of Hercules,
&c., to my Lord ----"; and three letters reprinted from Lord
Shaftesbury's life in the _General Dicionary_, which was prepared by
Dr. Kippis, under the superintendence of Lord Shaftesbury's son, the
fourth earl.

University_, two letters have been transcribed by an unknown previous
possessor. One is to Bishop Burnet, recommending young Ainsworth
when about to be ordained deacon:--

I took him a child from his poor parents, out of a numerous and
necessitous family, into my own, employing him in nothing servile; and
finding his ingenuity, put him abroad to the best schools to qualify him
for preferment in a peculiar way. But the serious temper of the lad
disposing him, as I found, to the ministry preferably to other
advantages, I could not be his hindrance; though till very lately I gave
him no prospect of any encouragement through my interest. But having
been at last convinced, by his sober and religious courage, his studious
inclination and meek behaviour, that 'twas real principle and not a
vanity or conceit that led him into these thoughts, I am resolved, in case
your lordship thinks him worthy of the ministry, to procure him a
benefice as soon as anything happens in my power, and in the mean
time design to keep him as my chaplain in my family.
"I am, my Lord, &c.,
The second letter inserted in my copy is to Ainsworth himself, dated

Reigate, 11th May, 1711, and written when he was about to apply for
