In the following Brief for the Plaintiff, Bacon vs. Shakespeare, in an action of ejectment, now on trial, it is intended to cite such facts only as are generally agreed upon by both parties or can be easily verified, and in the main to let those facts, trumpet-tongued, speak for themselves. Like the lines that mark the sea-coast on our maps, each separate proof shades off in a thousand fine corroborating circumstances, which are often very interesting, as well as important for a full knowledge of the subject. Mr. Donnelly's cipher is, for the present purpose at least, clearly beyond soundings. For further information, the reader is respectfully referred to the works of Delia Bacon, Mrs. Pott, Richard Grant White, Dr. Rolfe, Judge Holmes, Appleton Morgan, and last, but not least, Ignatius Donnelly; not to mention numerous others which the world, it is to be feared, will soon be too small to contain.
