Bland dated his letter "Jordan's, March 20, 1760," clearly marking this as a 1760 imprint. Yet Bristol reported a 1759 edition (B2012) of this title; thus Shipton & Mooney included Bristol's entry in their compiled bibliography (41024) but suggest that he had assumed a publication date from the trans-Atlantic exchange on the subject of the "Two Penny Acts" during 1759, so creating an entry that is a ghost of this edition. Imprint includes a reprinting of Rev. Thomas Sherlock's A Letter from the Lord-Bishop of London to the Lords of Trade and Plantations, dated June 14, 1759, as a preface.
