MEMOIR OF THE LATE REV. GEORGE BALDERSTON KIDD,
Thk best use to which we can apply the removal of the righteous from our midst, is to commend their holy example to those who survive. They may thus become a blessing even after their decease, as they were a blessing during their life-time, by their active benevolence and consistent piety. The fragrance of their memory becomes an incentive to virtue, no less than the charm of their living goodness when it bloomed in our midst, having "good report of all men, and of the truth iteelf."
The subject of our present notice was bom at Oottingham, Yorkshire, on tlio 28th of July, in the year 1794, where his father, the Rev. Anthony Kidd, then held the pastorate over a Congregational church. From his earliest years he delighted in study and thoughtful occupations; indicating, even then, by his general habits, the precision, and devotion to research and speculation, which marked his after life. When a boy of twelve or thirteen years of age, we record, as a mere indication of character, that he wroto the following inscription for a retired seat in his father's garden :—
"Hail, noontide shade in peaceful bower I
For here true pleasures live;
But then, no less than up to the day of his death, a remarkable cheerfulness and frankness of disposition and manner were characteristic of him, so that thoughtfulncss and the love of books were tempered in no degree, in him, with sourness of temper or ascetic seclusion. In 1809, we find him devoting himself, with ardour and exemplary diligence, to tho study of medicine, under a respectable firm of practitioners in Scarborough, and securing the confidence and esteem of his employers by his demeanour. As some young persons, in a similar situation of dependence and trust, may probably read this narrative, we extract, with pleasure, the following sentence from a letter of Dr. Travis, extending his period of recreation on a visit to his friends, in the year 1612: "I know I can depend on your punctuality; and your general attention and good conduct demand every indulgence from us that business will allow."
