He was of a gentle and forbearing spirit ; and if, at times, he seemed to shrink from that firm and uncompromising assertion of high principle, which might have been expected from his exemplary piety, we are quite sure that this apparent tergiversation is to be accounted for on suppositions quite consistent with integrity of conscience. .

It is undeniable, that Reynolds exhibited, to use plain language, some of the qualities which distinguished the accommodating Vicar of Bray. He first held preferment as the adherent of Episcopacy ; he then conformed under a Presbyterian establishment; and at the Restoration, when Episcopacy came again into fashion, and it was raining
