Nicholas Ferrar and George Herbert windows at Herbert’s parish church, St. Andrew’s, Bemerton in Wiltshire; they were best friends at Cambridge, obtained livings two miles apart (with Ferrar at Little Gidding), and when Herbert was near death, he sent his poetry to Farrar to decide whether it should be published. With a preface by Ferrar, “The Temple” went through eight printings and established Herbert as one of the masters of English poetry. (Wikipedia)
