Bp. Joseph Hall

Afterwards Bishop of Exeter and Norwich.

One of the few Bishops or Ecclesiastics that Mr. Walpole condescends to speak favourably of. Query, whether that can or ought to be a recommendation of him. However, I think he deserves it. See Mr. Walpole's Catalogue of Royal and Noble Authors, edit. 1758, i. 187, note.
