poet. He did much to improve the style of versification.
One of his principal productions is a translation into
blank verse of the second book of the " ^neid," which
is admired for its fidelity and poetic diction. He also
wrote numerous sonnets and songs. There is some
doubt of the reality of his romantic passion for Geral-
dine, who is the subject of his most admired effusions.
She was a child of thirteen, named Lady Elizabeth Fitz-
gerald, who afterwards became the wife of the Earl of
Lincoln.

Howard, (HENRY,) Earl of Northampton, second
son of the preceding, was born at Norfolk about 1539.
He was a person of much learning, but of bad principles.
He became a privy councillor at the accession of James
I., who made him Earl of Northampton. In 1608 he
was appointed lord privy seal. He was suspected of
complicity in the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury, and
in the disgraceful conduct of his relative, the Countess
of Essex. Died in 1614.

Howard, (HENRY,) born in 1757, was the son of
Philip Howard of Corby Castle, England, and a de-
scendant of the noble Earl of Surrey. He published
" Indication of Memorials, etc. of the Howard Family,"
(1834,) and other works. Died in 1842.

Howard, (HENRY,) an English painter, born in 1769,
entered the Royal Academy as a student in 1788. In
1790 he won two of the highest premiums, a gold
medal for the best historical painting, and a silver medal
for the best drawing from life. After a visit to Rome
he was chosen a member of the Royal Academy in 1808,
and secretary of that body in 1811. His favourite sub-
jects are classical and poetical, and are treated with
elegant taste. Among his best works are " The Birth
of Venus," "The Solar System," " The Circling Hours,"
uid "The Story of Pandora." Died in 1847.

Howard, (Sir JOHN,) was a son of Sir Robert Howard
and Margaret, a daughter of Thomas Mowbray, Duke
of Norfolk. He was a partisan of the house of York
during the wars of the Roses. He was created Duke
of Norfolk in 1483, and was killed with Richard III. at
Bosworth in 1485.

Howard, (JOHN,) F.R.S., a celebrated English phikn-
thropist, born at Hackney, near London, in 1726. He
was the son of a London tradesman, who died in his
minority and left him an independent fortune. Having
made a tour on the continent, he returned home and
took lodgings with a widow named Loidore, by whom he
was kindly nursed when his health required such atten-
tion, and whom he married out of mere gratitude in 1752,
although she was more than twenty years his senior.
After their marriage she Hved only three or four years.
In 1756 he embarked for Lisbon, in the desire to relieve
the miseries caused by the great earthquake of 1755, but
during the passage was taken by a French privateer, and
detained in prison long enough to excite his lasting sym-
pathy with prisoners and to impress him with the neces-
sity of a reform in their treatment. After he was re-
leased he returned home, and married in 1758 Henrietta
Leeds, with whom he lived happily at Cardington until
her death in 1765. He had by this marriage one son,
whose vicious habits produced first disease and then
incurable insanity. Having been appointed sheriff of
the county of Bedford in 1773, he witnessed with pain
the abuses and cruelties to which prisoners were usually
subjected. After visiting most of the county jails of Eng-
land, and collecting much information respecting them,
he induced the House of Commons in 1774 to begin a
reform in prison discipline, to which his life thenceforth
was constantly, heroically, and successfully devoted. In
1777 he published a valuable volume on "The State of
the Prisons in England," etc. From 1778 until his death
he was almost continually employed in traversing all
parts of Europe, visiting prisons and hospitals, relieving
the sick, and, as Burke expresses it, "taking the gauge
and dimensions of misery, depression, and contempt."
He died of fever in 1790, at Cherson, on the Black Sea.



His habits were simple, temperate, and self denying.
Having been educated among Protestant dissenters, he
continued in their fellowship through life.
