Excerpt from Chrysomela: A Selection From the Lyrical Poems of Robert Herrick
Young Robert appears to have attended school in Westminster until his fifteenth year, when he was apprenticed to Sir Wil liam, who had learned the gentle art of gold smith from his nephew's father. Though Robert's indentures bound him for ten years, Sir William is supposed to have of fered no remonstrance when he was asked, long before that term expired, to cancel the engagement and allow Robert to enter Carn bridge, which he did as fellow-commoner at St. John's College. At the end of two years he transferred himself to Trinity Hall, with a view to economy and the pursuit of the law - the two frequently go together. He received his degree of ra. In 1617, and his m.a. In 1620, having relinquished the law for the arts.
