The Boston Evening Post, published on Monday evenings, was a continuation of Jeremiah Gridley's Weekly Rehearsal, renamed in August 1735 after Thomas Fleet (1685-1758) became its printer and editor. The newspaper was published by Fleet until his death in July 1758, and thereafter by his sons, Thomas Jr. and John. Its final issue was published on April 24, 1775, during increasing instability in pre-Revolutionary Boston.
