The 'Grumbler', 1715

In the issue for 17-20 May 1715, the 'Grumbler' by Squire Gizzard responded to the published 'Caton d'Utique' by

Fran~ois Michel Chretien Deschamps. Prtnted in Paris early in 1715, copies had become available in London by May. 'The Grumbler's' preference for Addison's 'Cato' is politically oriented, if not Whig-inspired.
