Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


Consists of selected manuscripts by or related to Kennicott. Included are three original, undated manuscripts--two sermons and a poem entitled "A Poem on Christmas Day"--and a commonplace book kept by John Cooke (b. 1742), also of Totnes (lass of 1760, Christ Church, Oxford), which contains copies of eleven poems by Kennicott, most of which are unpublished. Some of the poems concern people or events in Totnes, and one is a humorous parody of Hamlet's soliloquy "To be or not to be."
