Will O' Wisp Treason....................

"If I were to name this, I would call it the Will o' wisp treason.  For though it is said to be here and there and everywhere, yet it is nowhere.  It only exists in the newspapers and in the mouths of the enemies of the gentleman for whom I appear;  who get it put in the newspapers."
-Luther Martin, defense counsel for Aaron Burr, 1807
