Abstract:

"One of the more plainspoken and entertaining accounts of the Onderdonk controversy, from an author whom Onderdonk remarks in his statement,'His erratic peculiarities are well known.' Richmond here unravels the conspiracy against Onderdonk by claiming sole credit for it. He also amplifies on the rumors that Onderdonk drank ('I said, "He is in the habit of being overcome by wine;" and I confess here I made a mistake out of tenderness, for I ought to have said brandy'), though his most damning remarks regard the Bishop's sexual misconduct. Richmond notes, 'a wife of a clergyman now living in the West, whose testimony will come in, on the second trial, was standing alone in a room by a window, when this mad * * ll came up softly behind her, and at once, like lightning, thrust both his hands down into her bosom!'"
