Abstract:

Manuscript on paper, in a single hand, of a large collection of religious and political prose and verse excerpts. The prose contents include notes extracted from Edward Clarendon's History of the Rebellion, 1625-42; Queen Anne's speeches to Parliament between 1710 and 1714; genealogies of David and Herod; the lives of the popes up to "Innocent 11th, now living" in 1675; extracts from Bishop Robert Sanderson's sermons; and meditations on various controversial religious issues such as infant baptism, "an objection against giving the communion to sick persons," and "objections against the gestures us'd at the Lord's Table." The verses in the volume are primarily satirical, including "Ode for the New Year, written [by] Colly Cibber"; The Jesuits' Double-Fac'd Creed; "On Dr. Swift Leaving his Fortune To Build An Hospital For Idiots & Lunaticks, 1734"; and numerous excerpts from the Grubstreet Journal.
