- Letter to the author of the National Journal.
- June 10, 1746
This letter, signed by Ithacus, bring in some reflections around the figures of James II and VII (1633-1701) King of England, Ireland and King of Scotland, from 6 February 1685 until he was deposed in the Glorious Revolution of 1688; and his son, James Francis Edward, Prince of Wales (10 June 1688 – 1 January 1766), nicknamed the Old Pretender, who never held the throne. The first sentence alludes at the fact that the letter was written the day of James Francis birthday, June 10. The National Journal was a newspaper published during the Jacobite Rebellion. It began with no. 1 (Mar. 22, 1746) and ceased with no. 43 (June 28, 1746).
