1693, May 101763, Oct 25
an English biographer. It was some time after 1744 that Fox penned his own Memoirs, and the Characters of some of his contemporaries. They throw light on dissenting history. Fox writes with freedom, though his estimates of men were coloured by his dislikes. In 1814 some use was made of the ‘Characters’ by Joshua Toulmin, to whom the manuscript had been lent by Fox's grandson, George Cleather of Stonehouse, near Plymouth; Toulmin had evidently not seen the ‘Memoirs.’ In 1821 the ‘Memoirs’ and nine ‘Characters’ were published in the ‘Monthly Repository,’ with nine letters from Secker to Fox, one from Fox to Secker, and two from Chandler to Fox. Notes were added by John Towill Rutt.
