No. 5747 in Roberts, Whitefield in Print: A Bibliographic Record of Works By, For, and Against George Whitefield. "Includes: Opinions...concerning Mr. Wesley's and Mr. Whitefield's pretensions."

"And now having stated both my sentiments respecting the nature of Mr. Wesley's and Mr. Whitefield's pretensions; and the authorities by which those sentiments may be supported; I will venture to express an hope, that these Sermons may contribute, in some degree, towards the repressing of that restless spirit of Enthusiasm, the fatal tendency of which has always been to unsettle the religious opinions of mankind, and to destroy the peace of the Church." - p. ix.

The entire work is a review of Wesley and Whitefield.

George Frederic Nott (1767-1841), Anglican divine and author. "George matriculated from Christ Church, Oxford...1784, aged seventeen, and distinguished himself as a classical scholar. Graduating B.A. in 1788, he was elected a fellow of All Souls College, took holy orders, and proceeded M.A in 1792 (B.D in 1802, and D.D. in 1807). In 1801 he was proctor in the university, and in 1802 he preached the Bampton lectures, his subject being ‘Religious Enthusiasm.’ The success attending these sermons, which were published next year, brought him to the notice of the king, who appointed him sub-preceptor to Princess Charlotte of Wales. Much clerical preferment followed." - DNB
