Notes

"Fac simile. As nothing can more conduce to the demonstration of the truth, than the publication of fac simile engravings of the writing of the forged letters ... William Duane will undertake to have engravings executed, if an adequate sum to defray the expence shall be subscribed ... This proposal ought to be accepted by all parties, as nothing can more tend to the exculpation of Mr. Rutledge, if he is not guilty; and the indifference of opposition of his friends to the proposal will be very naturally considered as an evidence of apprehension at least. A paper is opened at the book-store for the receipt of subscriptions ..."--p. 24.

Generally attributed to William Duane.

Supporting the accusation made by Senator Christopher Ellery (Republican, of R.I.) that Rutledge (Federalist, of S.C.) was the author of two letters written to President Jefferson over the signature of Nicolas Geffroy of Newport, R.I.
