James Yonge, from his Journal

c. 1681-2

Traveller, surgeon at Plymouth, and member of the Royal Society, James Yonge (1647-1721) kept a journal recording his experiences from his boyhood under Cromwell to his old age under Queen Anne. Prefacing it is ‘A List of Famous Men and Women I have Seen in My Travels, ’ and his modern editor places the reference to Marvell c. 1681-2.

Extract from the Journal of James Yonge, ed. F. N. L. Poynter (1963), p. 23.

Mr. Andrew Marvell, Burgess for Hull, an ingenious man, author of some poems, ‘Advice to the Paynter, ’ Miscellany [Poems], Rehersal transposed [sic]; vindicated Mr. How, and the naked truthe, a man not well affected to the Church or Government of England.

Extract from In MEMORY of Joseph Washington, Esq; Late of the Middle Temple, an Elegy (1694), ll. 69-80.
