A Political Attack On Sir George Prevost

The Letters Of Veritas, .... (thought to be written by Major John Richardson*):

*Relentlessly, the English party in the province kept up its attacks. Samuel Gale and “Veritas” each printed a malevolent series of letters in the Montreal Herald and subsequently published them as pamphlets. A diligent investigation ensued to unmask “Veritas.” John Richardson, a Montreal merchant and executive councillor, has been suspected, but the author was Solicitor General Stephen Sewell, Jonathan’s brother, whom Prevost suspended for his involvement in the campaign against him.
