HENRY SMITH, lecturer at St Clement Danes without Temple Bar from 1587 until his retirement in 1590, was popularly known as ‘Silver-tongued Smith’, and likened by Thomas Nashe to Ovid, as gifted enough to write ditties for Apollo, and one whose death the Muses mourned.1 An undated sermon by him, ‘A Glass for Drunkards’, first appears in The Sermons of Maister Henrie Smith (1593)
