Summary:
Satirical book describing a fictional dialogue between Charles II and his successor and brother James II. In the dialogue he tells James that his death was caused by a poisoned piece of chocolate. The ghost of Charles tells James that his time to reign is short. James defends his reign, saying that he eliminated the Test and Penal Acts but the English still dislike him. Charles tells him that the People no longer trust the King, since James' French ally treated the Huguenots so poorly. Charles suggests that James commit suicide and disappears, leaving James in desperation and thinking of nothing except his downfall and eventual death. (anonymously written)
