Notes

First edition of Tindal's reply to the republican-inclined "Cato's Letters", published pseudonymously by John Trenchard and Thomas Gordon in the London Journal from 1720 to 1723. Though a freethinker and controversialist, Matthew Tindal (1657-1723) was nonetheless a strong support of the Whig establishment and the British constitution as established by the Glorious Revolution and Hanoverian succession. The present works defends both the constitution and the present administration. Uncommon in commerce; ESTC locates 12 copies.
