Notes:
"Advertisement. The unfortunate Whiting Sweeting, having confidence in my promise, left me with his narrative for publication ... No other person has had his writings, nor an opportunity of transcribing therefrom. The spurious publication, by Mr. Barber, is supposed to have been in consequence of a merited denial of his application ... Silvester Tiffany. Sept. 6, 1791."--p. [2].
"A short account of the life, conversation, parting advice, and execution of Whiting Sweeting---by Wm. Carter."--p. 65-72.
