Still I had no intention of pub... lishing. But some considerable time after, T - I received letters from distant places, where ... people had no knowledge, either of Mr. C. . ... or myself, earnestly requesting me to publish. I at length complied, and commenced making some preparations. Sometime after this, I understood, that a second edition of Mr. C's, book was about to be published in Pittsburg. T waited anxiously, but yet waited a long time, hoping that Mr. C. would make such alterations, or concessions, as would either supercede the necessity of my publication, or To make me think that he designed to be cans did and tell the truth. But I was astonished - when the second edition made its appearance. * –It was Mr. C. still.
