Rev. John Cooke

John Nichols, in Literary Anecdotes of the XVIII Century (1812-15) 9:746.



The following Letters were addressed to the Rev. John Cooke, M.A. the present venerable Chaplain of Greenwich Hospital, in consequence of his publication of Lord Sandwich's Travels:

Windsor Castle, Feb. 5, 1802.
Reverend Sir,
You may easily conceive that the information contained in your Letter of the 1st, gave me great pleasure; and Lord Sandwich must feel particularly gratified, when he is so authentically apprized of the great utility of his father's Book, in forwarding the operations of the British Army in Egypt — When you see his Lordship, I beg you will present my respects; and believe me to be (with thanks for the intelligence you communicated),
Reverend Sir,
Your faithful servant,
J. Sarum.
