16631712
an English poet. In 1688 he published Reflections upon Mons Varillas's History of Heresy, written with Edward Hannes, a confutation of Antoine Varillas's account of John Wycliffe. In 1699 he published A Journey to London and in 1700 he satirised the Royal Society -- or at least, Sir Hans Sloane, their president -- in two dialogues. Back in London, he published some essays and then wrote the Art of Love, a poem; in 1709 imitated Horace in an Art of Cookery; The History of the Heathen Gods, a book composed for schools, was written in 1711. The same year he published Rufinus, a historical essay; and a political poem on Duke of Marlborough and his adherents.
