"Though it has been mistaken by careless people as actually a production of [James] Harrington's, [this] is in reality a clever burlesque by some Royalist, in which, under the guise of an imaginary debate in the Rota over Milton's pamphlet, Milton and the Rota-men are turned into ridicule together. The mock-names on the title-page .. are part of the burlesque; and it is well kept up in the tract itself, which takes the form of a letter gravely addressed to Milton and signed with Harrington's initials, 'J.H.'"--Masson, D. The life of John Milton, 1859-1894, v. 5, p. 660 Annotation on Thomason copy: "March 30"; "Marsh 30"
