THE CASE OF MAJOR ANDRE.
77. "The Case of Major John Andre, Adjutant General to the British Army, who
was put to death by the rebels, october 2, 1780, candidly represented : with
Remarks on the said Case." New York: Rivington, 1780. 4to, pp. 27.
This is in the Brown library, Providence. It was probably never published, for this
copy, the only one known to exist, is made up of the printer's proofs. It was unques-
tionably drawn up under Clinton's supervision, and my own opinion, after a very careful
examination of it, is that it was written by Clinton himself — intended by him to be
published as an offset to the "Proceedings of a Board," issued by the Americans, but
withdrawn from the press by him after the types had been set up and the first proofs
taken. (See Magazine ofAmerican History, December, 1879, p. 742.) It is in Sargent,
p. 274. It states that the gallows was "placed in full view of the windows of
Washington's headquarters, as if the sight afforded him pleasure."
