Imprint lacks authorial credit; Evans attributed this title to John Cosens Ogden, based on the events described herein; text is essentially a discussion of ties between Federalist politicians in Vermont and Yale-educated Congregational clergy in New England that led to an assault on followers of non-conformist religions under cover of Federalist political authority. Imprint states: "Printed by James Lyon, at the office of the National magazine." That office was conducted by Meriwether Jones, who employed Lyons as both a journeyman and editor; Lyon's relocation to Richmond was a result of an impending libel prosecution in Vermont at the hands of the Federalist officials mentioned in this text.
