The Daily Post (1719-1771). was a London daily paper begun on October 24, 1719 by printer Hugh Meres in the Old Bailey, near Ludgate, with contributions from writer Daniel Defoe.[1] It was later printed by John Meres (a relation of Hugh Meres); Meres also became printer of the London Evening Post by 1737.[2]

The Post consisted of articles that spoke of current events, important dates, inventions, advances in modern sciences, and other things of that nature. It lasted until 1771.[3]
