My lord Bishop of Asaph (Dr. William Fleetwood) published
Four Sermons in 1712, to which he prefixed the Preface here reprinted
by Steele. The House of Commons having condemned the book,
because of its Whig principles, Steele by this editorial ruse gave
it a wide circulation (fourteen thousand copies were said to have
been sold). He delayed publication till twelve o'clock, so that
it might go direct to the Queen's breakfast-table without risk of
suppression by the Court officials. Mr. Spectator here, and in the
case of the Duke of Marlborough, had forgotten his vow not to
meddle with politics. See Johnson's Life of Addison.
