Dr. George Fnt, president of the College of Physicians, and fellow of the Royal Society in this reign, distinguished himself in that of Charles I. by writing an apology in Latin for Dr. Harvey's doctrine of the circulation of the blood, in opposition to Æmilius Parisanus. In the same book are some judicious observations on the operation of purging medicines. He was author of several other pieces, some of which are in the "Philosophical Transactions." Glanvill, speaking in his "Plus Ultra" of the modern improvements in anatomy, numbers sir George Ent, Dr. Glisson, and Dr. Willis, with the most celebrated discoverers in that useful science. The two former were among the first members of the Royal Society.
