Commentary

This letter, a defence of the committee that examined Gregg, is not by Swift, but the letter [possibly by John Oldmixon] that he replied to in Some Remarks upon a Pamphlet, Entitl’d , A Letter to the Seven Lords of the Committee, Appointed to Examine Gregg.

Baker was a prominent trade publisher or distributor. He established the firm that was later run by Thomas Warner, and, later still, by Thomas and Mary Cooper.
