Note on the Text
The copy text used in producing this edition is the Newberry Library’s copy of the first (and only) edition of Some Thoughts of an Honest Tory. I have also consulted the copy held at Senate House Library, University of London, which is identical. Original typography, orthography, and punctuation have mostly been retained, except that the “long s” has been modernized and running left-hand quotation marks have been omitted. Other emendations to the text are noted and my interpolations are in square brackets.
For helpful feedback and practical help in preparing this edition, I would like to thank Katherine Ellison, Holly Faith Nelson, Ginny Weckstein, an anonymous reviewer for Digital Defoe, and Mackenzie Sarna, who completed the first transcription of the text on my behalf.
