to identity with the dauphin of France were not put forth by himself, but by others. In Putnam's monthly magazine (1853-54), Rev. Mr. Hanson published a series of papers under the title Have we a Bourbon among us? and afterwards published them in book form and entitled the volume The lost Prince. Mr. Hanson fortified the claim to identity by most remarkable facts and coincidences. In 1854 the Prince de Joinville, heir to the throne of Louis Philippe, visited Mr. Williams at Green Bay, Wis. The accounts of the interview, as given by the clergyman and the deeply interested prince, differed widely. The world was incredulous; the words of a prince outweighed those of a poor Episcopal clergyman, and the public judgment was against the latter. Mr. Williams died in Hogansburg, N. Y., Aug. 28, 1858, aged about seventy-two years. He translated the Book of common prayer into the Mohawk language. He also prepared an Iroquois spelling-book, and a life of Thomas Williams, his reputed father.
