HENRY BLAND was head master of Eton School, then Provost of the College, and afterward Dean of Durham. He was author of the Latin Translation of Cato's Soliloquy, in No. 628, originally attributed to Atterbury. The late Horace Walpole assured Mr. Nicholls that he had heard his father, Sir Robert, say that it was the work of Bland, and that he had himself given it to Addison.
RICHARD INCE was educated at Westminster, and after became a student of Christchurch, Oxford. Steele testifies to his having been a contributor to the "Spectator," in No. 555. In 1740, he obtained, through Lord Granville's interest, the office of Secretary to the Comptroller of Army Accounts, the duties of which he performed with great credit for twelve years; when, by the death of his brother, he inherited an affluent fortune. He died in 1758.
CAREY, of New College, Oxford, was, by Steele's acknowledgment (No. 555), a contributor to the "Spectator;" his productions, however, have not been identified.
Beside the Papers ascribed, by ascertained fact, and by internal evidence, to the foregoing, a considerable number marked T. (meaning, it is judged, Transcribed), as well as fifty-three others, remain unappropriated. Many of them, it is probable, are the compositions of Budgell and Tickell; but research seems to have done its utmost and it is not now likely that further information will be elicited respecting them.
