Howell, James (15931666)

Howell, James, an English writer, whose “Familiar Letters” have won a permanent place in English literature, born in Abernant, Carmarthenshire; travelled for many years on the Continent in a business capacity; entered Parliament in 1627; was for some years a Royalist spy, and suffered imprisonment at the Fleet; at the Restoration he was created Historiographer-Royal; his works are numerous, but his fame rests upon his entertaining “Instructions for Foreigne Travell” and his graceful and witty “Familiar Letters” (15931666).
