Royal Observatory Greenwich - GA has looked at Cowley's [Abraham Cowley] Ode to the Royal Society: 'I find the allusions and the repetition of allusions to Bacon much stronger than I had supposed. Cowley, though no man of science, was a schemer in science, and seems to have been intimate with the founders of the Royal Society...from whom probably he had derived his impressions about Bacon'.

(Sheffield.)—Adds to his previous remarks on Nashe’s phrase ‘good mindes to Godward’.

(Undated. Postmarked at Sheffield on 5 Nov. 1912.)



Nashe II 225. 29. ‘pincht a number of good mindes to Godward of their prouant.’ {1}

You remember I suggested that ‘good mindes to Godward’ form one phrase. {2} There is something similar, I see, in Cowley’s Cutter of Coleman St Act I. Sc 2. ‘He was a very Rogue ‥ as to the business between man and man, but as to God-ward he was always counted an Upright man, and very devout.’
