The Occasional Paper. Vol. II. Numb. XI. Letters to the Author. Containing Some Remarks on the following Pamphlets, viz. I. The Church of England Man’s Memorial: Or the History of Comprehension and Toleration. II Dr. Cannon’s Vindication of the Lower House of Convocation. III. Dr. Dawson’s Suspiria Sacra.

London: Printed for James Knapton... J. Roberts... J.Harrison... and J. Dodd... 1718. Cr. 8vo, A-F4, 24pp, 19th century half calf, marbled paper boards, morocco label, sound.
This is sometimes confused with another periodical, The Occasional Paper, by Richard Willis published in 1697-8. It appears, however, to be part of “ A Collection of Occasional Papers for the Year 1716 (-18)” edited by Avery with contributions by Simon Browne, Benjamin Grosvenor, Samuel Wright, John Evans, Jabez Earl, Nathaniel Lardner and Mose Lowman, and collectively known as the Bagweel Papers from the initials of the authors. The letters are replies to anti-dissenting texts. Copac locates two copies (BL & Edinburgh) of the collected edition (3 vols) and a few odd parts. BUCOP adds more.
