was brother to the above, and born in America, where his father was a voluntary exile, 1684, and at the revolution came over to Glasgow, where he had his education, and made great progress in the study of the Greek language. In 172O he was appointed professor of Greek in the university of Glasgow, and was much followed for the art of teaching that language in a manner superior to any of his contemporaries. In 1736 he published a Greek grammar, which has gone through several editions, and is still very much esteemed, and is the one chiefly used in the Scottish universities. He died at Glasgow, 1742, aged fifty-eight.
