However, Pitcher makes no mention of the Whitehall Evening-Post, and the piece has not been found in the Westminster Magazine vol. 4 (1776), nor vol.1 (1773), vol. 6 (1778), vol. 7 (1779), vol. 8 (1780). The piece is reprinted in Thoughts in Prose and Verse, started in his Walks, By John Hope (Stockton, 1780), pp.40-45.
