Rev. Richard Farmer

Thomas Warton to Richard Hurd, 14 October 1766; in Thomas Warton, Correspondence, ed. Fairer (1995) 199-200.



I have been lately at Cambridge, where I gott acquainted with Mr. Farmer of your College, who is a great literary Antiquarian. He is publishing a short Essay on the Learning of Shakespeare. He showed me several curious books, which he had collected, relating to Researches of that sort.
