Second edition, enlarged, published the same year as the first. ‘A most severe and bitter satire, on a certain great military Ag—t’ (Monthly Review), i.e. John Calcraft, the profiteering deputy commissary of musters, from which post he had been ejected in 1763. ‘If the person satirized in this Poem be as ungrateful as the poet appears to be angry, he is certainly a monster of ingratitude indeed’ (St James Magazine).
