First edition, likely the first of four issues in 1765, this with the error in both pagination and the title. This Postscript to John Wilkes’s Letter concerning libels of the same year and Charles Lloyd’s Defence of the majority (1764) is often attributed to Almon, who published Wilkes’s work. It rebuts criticism of the Letter and makes additions to the second and third editions.
