The claims of the project's advocates are filled with "misrepresentations," "greatly exaggerated and incorrect." It is "a matter of astonishment" that such deceptions have been at all successful. The characters and careers of Gisborne and Smith are notable for frauds and dishonor. The Boston Merchants should abandon their association with these men, and end their "complicity" with the "swindle."
