Rev. Henry Felton

John Nichols, in Literary Anecdotes of the XVIII Century (1812-15) 4:716.



Educated at Christ's Church, Oxford, a very ingenious man, and a good scholar, was tutor to Lord Ross, son to the Earl of Rutland; for whose use he wrote his Dissertation on the Classics, which is an elegant small performance, several times printed: the last edition in 1757 is the best. He published also eight Sermons, preached at Lady Moyer's lecture, in 8vo. and some single sermons besides.
