High Church Prophet


Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the life and career of Samuel Horsley. He was outstandingly able and effective, but displayed to the world many of the more unpleasant qualities that attend success — a rough-tough fighting manner characteristic of the middle classes rather than a cultivated aristocracy, a sarcastic wit, and a tendency to talk down to audiences as if they were his students. In private, however, he was a sensitive plant, emotionally dependent on diminishing home support and beset by a run of financial embarrassments, which, by his death, brought his affairs to such a state that, as his domestic chaplain, William Jocelyn Palmer, explained, ‘there remained nothing which he could call his own’.
