Additional Material
Print Editions / WitnessesA sermon at the funeral of Mr. Christopher Glascock, the late eminent school-master of Felsted in Essex preached there Jan. 22, 1689/90, by William Shelton (London: Printed for N. Ranew ... and J. Robinson, 1690)
DescriptionSeems likely to be notes taken from a printed sermon. Mainly consists of notes on Glascock's character, such as “He commended him among other things for an able Divine and saies of him He had indeed a compassion for Dissenters and such as some might be interpreted a favouring of their way. But his charity was more to their persons, than their cause….” Written in a clear small hand.
