    Excerpt from One Hundred Years of Publishing, 1785-1885

    Oswald, editor and publisher of the Independent Gazetteer, the organ of the party then known as Republicans, had vainly sought to prevent the founding of a rival journal, and, failing in this, resolved to crush it and its owner. Personalities ran high in those days. Mr. Carey, like his oppo nent, was not lacking in vituperative power, and the result was a duel, fought in january, 1786. Mr. Carey was no fire-eater. Oddly enough, his first venture in authorship had been an essay against duelling, printed in 1777, and he used to relate that prior to his meeting with Colonel Oswald he had never fired a pistol but once, and that was when hiding in Dublin he had desired to unload a weapon that had been given to him, and had discharged it up a chimney. His opponent had served throughout the Revolution and was a practised shot, as was shown by his lodging his bullet in Mr. Carey's thigh-bone, stretching him on his back for about sixteen months. Mr. Carey justified his conduct in this matter by his settled conviction that in no other way could he over come an organized attempt to destroy his career; and it is pleasant to chronicle that the two antago mists became good friends.
