First American edition, from the second English edition, corrected and enlarged. The author makes the case for Sir Phillip Francis (see DNB for a long article with relevant discussion to this work). Junius, writing 1769-1772, was the pseudonym of a "well-informed Whig who poured brilliantly slanderous invective upon Tory-minded English ministers for a 'series of inconsistent measures' which allegedly ruined England and drove the colonies into excesses little short of rebellion" (DNB).
