Short Note This is a short note

The Times newspaper publishes letters apparently by Charles Stuart Parnell which appear to implicate him in the murders of two British officials in Dublin in 1882. These are later proved as the forgeries of an anti-Parnellite journalist, Richard Pigott, by a special commission.
