PRICE, Richard, clergyman, born in Tynton, Glamorganshire, Wales, 23 February, 1723 ; died in London, England, 19 March, 1791. He was the son of a dissenting Calvinistic minister, was educated at a dissenting academy, and held several appointments in and about London. Of his "Observations on Civil Liberty and the Justice and Policy of the War with America" (London and Boston, 1776) 60,000 copies were soon distributed. For this work he received the thanks of the corporation of London and the freedom of the city, besides being invited, in 1778, by the congress of the United States, to become a citizen of this country.

He received the degree of D. I). from the University of Aberdeen in 1769, and that of LL. D. from Yale in 1781. His biography was written by his nephew, William Morgan, D. D. (London, 1815).
