"In this work Mr. Livingston is said, I know not on what authority, to have been assisted by William Smith and John Morine [sic] Scott. For the facts which it contains, he was probably indebted to his brother-in-law, Mr. Alexander, afterwards Lord Stirling, who was about this time secretary to General Shirley."--Sedgwick, T.A. Memoir of the life of William Livingston, New York, 1833, page 114.
