" is-God b&syou."^ - Bcfpre this note was prodiircd,- both theDo^^ of Yoke and,;Mrs. CiAaSE denivd it,.cach iayipg it must bo a forgery. It was very natural they should both forget it,'and bothliad suspicions ot. Sandon's honesty. It was natural,: because :the Duke was in thehab.if of writing tP Mrs. CtAtiat daily, and that he did write resptctihg military promotions is proved by the Letter from Sandgate, about Claverin'o, which must have been writfea within a few weeks of the time, this respecting. ToJiYN was written. The Duke being in the habit of writing, and Mrs. Ci-ARKE of reccivingnotes daily, no wonder this note about Tonyh escaped their memory, it having been so long out of theit possession, and out of their thoughfs no doubt. But very different was t"he *itriptession the note made upon Sasdon. This note was the only evidence of the Duke's int^trference in the sal^j of Commissions, which hat! co"fnfe into his; possession, thd only evidence briijging'lt hdmetoIhe Duke, and Ire kept it with the ^reateJl care ; nay, had it � Sf> often in his' hands" thit' ii" became .very dirt/, SandoS' kept Mrs. Clause's-Letters too contrary to her itrjunctions, reserving all those Papers, no "doubt, with tk^ design of semng his- future views wiff* the Duke, as occasion arose. "SVe have already observed, that throughoiit the wliple of his evidence on all t)ie cases' ttc is a-most unwilling witness, partictirarly ogaitist trie Da key a*d. of this very one will be satisfied who reads thcprintL-d Minutes of the House bf Commons,. Mrs.Ct,arke's conduct respecting this note^ter:d� powerftiliy to eslablish ifs authenticity. After Sandon had owned to its existence, and while he was gone homie tu procure'Ff, she^ was.examined, without being apprized of what he had faid. She peremptorily denied that any such note had ever gone from her hands, saying. Sanbcx was very capable of having fabricated it; she seemed to suspect he had done sometliiiig 'to entrap her ; but the moment'the No.te was" she\vn her, she says it is the Duke's writing, and she, supposes she must have seen it before, as it is addressed to Georos FAKqrjUAR,' Esq. ; yet she cannot recollect giving the Note to Sanron ; though she is positive it must have been in her possession first. Colonel GonooN, Generals Browseig and Hope, &c. being examined, say the-Note is like liie Duke's haud-wriUng.-Gordo.v says it has a. strong re� semblance ;bttt none of (hem will positively say it is or is not. the Duke's handiwrlting. Jon.s-stoii, Inspector of Franks at the General Post-,.Office, on coihpairing it with other Letter? of the Duke's, sa'ys It resembles them so nearly he thinks il is the Duke's handiwriting., Searles, his De-puty, on the same comparison, thinks they arc a'l written by the same hand. Nesbitt, principal of the 'Lcifter of-Attorney OiBce at the Bank, whose business-parficulatly is to examine Signatures, thiaks on camjatisoiv, the Note was not written by ths same hatid, as the other. B.ate-ma.v, of the Bank,-says there is a very corres-pbndent similarity. Bmssj of the, I^ank, who has been Examiner of forged Notes 15 years, says he should suppp$g./hey:wcr& all written by (lie same liaiid. It veryr^jrcly happens that a handwriting is So sfri)t�gly iijovetl in a Court of Law, as this Note is profed i'afohave been written by the tliike of Yonjt, Of serti* witnesses only oue declares a rtcgatire.
