Collection Description

Biographical Note

No information is available on John Wandesforde. He was apparently a 17th century seminary student in England. A note on the top of a sermon reads "A sermon preached by Mr. Belamy the 4th of July 1652 at Hupswett Chapell [sic]: in Romans the 5th and 15th."

Scope and Content Note

The copybook contains notes from a sermon in English along with short essays on subjects such as "Summer is better than winter," "Gentleness is in a prince even," "The shortness of life," etc. The significance of the work lies in its provision of a glimpse into the studies of an English student of the 1600's.
