British astrologer, Mr. John Palmer, who succeeded R.C. Smith as "Raphael," and is copied from the "Prophetic Messenger for 1837, page 53.

At age 23, Palmer was nearly ruined by a speculation, bad friends and treachery. At 25, he succeeded Smith and at 26, he married. He was said to have dissipated habits and on this account had to relinquish the editorship of the almanac. He got a situation as teacher in a school on Clifton Downs, near Birstall, where he was again discharged, and finally became a wanderer without home or hearth. He was a chemist by profession.


  • Work : New Job 1837 (Succeeded R.C. Smith)
