Note
  • A treatment unfavorable to Paine. "Cheetham's book is one of the most malicious ever written and nothing in it can be trusted" Cf. Conway, M.D., Life of Thomas Paine, 1892, I:xvi-xvii
  • Expurgated version, with revised or deleted passages (signified by blank spaces or asterisks). Cf. Gimbel. This revision was done following the author's libel conviction. Cf. Conway, M.D. Life of Thomas Paine
  • "Be it remembered, That on the thirtieth day of August, in the thirty-fourth year of the independence of the United States of America, James Cheetham, of the said district, hath deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof he claims as author ... In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States ... [signed] Charles Clinton, Clerk of the District of New York"--T.p. verso
