Excerpt from The Life of John Paul Jones: Written From Original Letters and Manuscript in Possession of His Relatives, and From the Collection Prepared by Henry Sherburne, Together With Chevalier Jones' Account of the Campaign of the Liman
As no Lieutenant Grubb ever sailed u... nder the orders of Captain John Paul Jones, and as no such person could, in consequence, have been shot by him, it is evident that an unvarnished and full account of the rear-admiral's life ought to be circulated in regions where such fabulous and monstrous legends obtain, in this age of light, admission into public prints.
