The Vindication of John Banks, of Virginia free pdf Excerpt from The Vindication of John Banks, of Virginia: Against Four Calumnies Published by Judge Johnson, of Charleston, South-Carolina, and Doctor Charles Caldwell, of Lexington, Kentucky, Also, the Vindication of General Henry Lee, of Virginia- With Sketches and Anecdotes of Many Revolutionary Patriots And Having heretofore published an article in the Argus of Western America, in which I promised to vindicate the character and credit of my brother, John Banks, who performed a distinguished part in the revolution, and who died in the year 1784, against the aspersions of the historical publications of Judge William Johnson and Doctor Charles Caldwell, I now proceed to the performance of that duty. Since the promise was made. I have been so much afflicted by disease and pain, that I have been compelled to write at intervals of ease, and often in a reclining posture, which has occasioned the. necessity of employing an amanuensis, to transcribe more intelligibly, what had been thus prepared. I have also been considerably retarded by the trouble it has cost me, to arrange facts and dates in chronological order- and although I am not entirely satisfied, yet my memory assures me, that the errors, if any, will be unimportant. While the mind has been thus devoted to arrangement, it could not also be employed in the choice of words or phraseology. My main purpose was, to exhibit the truth, in all matters deemed necessary for publication. From the reasons which have been shown, I am aware that the following pages will afford many causes for criticism- but as my purpose is, by the means of simple and plain illustration, to effect the main object which has urged me to this publication, provided I shall succeed therein, I will bear the castigation of critics without a murmur. But as it is my intention to publish an amended edition, as soon as circumstances will require it, I shall ask some indulgence on that account, and observe, that the following sheets have been sent into the world chiefly for the purpose of vindicating the conduct and character of a much respected brother, and as I believe, an upright man, and a genuine and meritorious patriot. I am aware that this publication will excite some surprise- but should the following pages be read with attention, the matter which they contain, will excite much more.
