Including the Universal Spectator (from 1728) and the London Evening-Post; his politics were extravagantly Tory. A libel (signed ‘True-blue’) published in the Evening-Post in 1755 earned him the pillory, with two years’ imprisonment and a severe fine. In 1741, he and T. Osborne unsuccessfully attempted to reform the Stationers’ Company, thereby making many enemies. Until his enforced retirement from business, he also owned a typefoundry.
