Scope and content

(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.’


[Direction:] Dr McKerrow | 4 Phœnix Lodge Mansions | Brook Green | Hammersmith | London W


Postmarked at Sheffield W.D.S.O. at 11 a.m. on 5 November 1912.

{1} The reference is to a phrase in The Unfortunate Traveller.

{2} See MCKW A2/14.
