A copy of a sermon on 2 Tim. ii. 19, with some curious notes in a contemporary hand, referring to the author as half insane and calling himself Joseph and The Angel of the Lord. The original was at one time (about 1800) in the hands of 'Mr Richard Prickitt, Master of the Chapel House Inn', and was no doubt preached in Oxford. The personal appearance of the author, who 'came down in[to] the world in 1796', is described on fol. 8.
