Remarks

The fictional setting follows the The History of Prince Mirabel's Infancy, Rise and Disgrace, 1st edition (London: J. Baker, 1712).link [The "Mandarins" are Lords, the "Proatins" the Commons.] Concentrates on defaming the late tory take over, by offering a history of the last parliamentary sessions. The text is somewhat more concrete than its competitors, partisan with the Dissenters and the London merchantry – offers numerous short characterizations of the leading politicians.
