Cambridge Notebook of Notes, Sermons and Letters

 Fonds
Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.8273

Scope and Contents

Notebook, apparently used primarily for a student's notes on logic, Latin translation, etc., but continued as a collection of copies of devotional works and sermons. Most of the items were copied from printed editions, but there are a few sermons of a late date that may have been written up from notes made by the writer. At one end is a series of Latin letters, evidently specimens of a prose composition, ending with one signed Antonius Belke. There is also the draft of a letter to Henry King, bishop of Chichester, 15 June 1663, about a property at Egerton, Kent, and referring to friends in Canterbury. Other items suggest the writer had a Cambridge connection.
