The Epistle is signed at the end, "From the Meeting for Sufferings in London, the sixth Day of the Seventh Month, 1751." Evans ascribed this work to the Philadelphia press of Franklin and Hall. Miller rejects this conclusion, noting that the Epistle "was evidently widely reprinted in England and sent to the American colonies in large numbers. Among the PHC holdings are copies of four similar but different setting. BF and DH printed none of them."
The Epistle contains "A brief account of the origin of the names of some months of the year, and of all the days of the week, now customarily and commonly used."
