Papers of Orator Henley

Most of the contents are notes for sermons or other addresses, or for self-improvement. Since notes relating to various subjects are often combined on a single sheet, succinct description is difficult, and many of the separate descriptions of the contents are not exhaustive.

Some of the sheets fall into obvious groups: for instance, ff. 41, 43–6, 32–7, 92–6, 91, 97–106 (in that order) are pages 7–64 of a booklet, of which f. 40 appears to have been the front cover, and ff. 156–62 and 107–11 appear to be parts of another booklet. Folios 64–5 and 47–50 may also belong together.

On the spine of the volume is stamped ‘Private Papers of Orator Henley’ and, at the foot, ‘1630’. (The label has come off, but the impression of the letters remains.)

Henley, John (1692–1756), dissenting minister and eccentric, known as Orator Henley
