To the Public. Whereas a malicious and scandalous report
has sometime since been circulated by John Schuneman, of Catskill, that the
subscriber had been executed in Massachusetts-Bay, for the heinous crime of the
murder, and robbery of a collector, on his way to Boston. Being fully convinced
that the said report was only intended to injure me in my reputation, and
industriously propagated without the least foundation in truth, I take this
method to inform the Rev. John Schuneman (if he deserves such an appellation)
that he is as notorious a lyar, as the said report is false.
Tunis Van Wagenen, Catskill Feb. 5, 1793
Whereas a publication, signed by Tunis Van Wagenen, has
appeared in the public news paper printed in the town of Kingston, charging me
the subscriber to have circulated a malicious and scandalous report, that the
said Tunis Van Wagenen had been executed for murder and robbery: this I
peremptorily deny, that I ever circulated any such report, or have had any
intention to injure the reputation of said Van Wagenen. But I could have wished
that the said Van Wagenen had acted more prudent, and investigated the fact,
before he in so public a manner had charged me as a notorious lyar. – What can
or may be the intention of the said Van Wagenen to have published in the manner
aforesaid, I must leave to himself and the public to judge, especially to those
who are acquainted with me and my character, and the character of the said Van
Wagenen. It would be against my profession, and it is against my inclination, to
revile to do evil because my fellow mortal has done so first.
John Schuneman V.D.M., Catskill Feb. 16, 1793
Monday, March 4, 1793
To John Schuneman – Having seen a piece under your
signature in the Farmer’s Register, dated Catskill, Feb. 2d, 1793, addressing
the public, induces me to come forward and inform you, that your preemptory
denial of having circulated the scandalous report to which you allude is as
false as the former propagation was malicious. You seem to plume yourself for
not having an inclination to revile, as it would be against your profession. I
am as well convinced as the fool is that wrote your address (knowing that you
cannot write or read English) that reviling is repugnant to the principles of
Christianity, especially when coming from a clergyman, in which point of view
you ought not, nor cannot, by any man of common sense, be considered. Your
neighbors and connexions must with me be surprised to read your denial, when, by
calling on them (if you have the effrontery to do it) they must tell you, that
you not only reported the falsehood, but when informed of your mistake, you
still persisted in it. Call on Mr. Blaau, and some other of your neighbors, and
they will tell you, that your address is replete with falsehood, as they have
the report from your own polluted lips. I shall now leave you to reflect on your
past folly, and if your age, weakness, and your early imbibed notions of
ignorance (as you possess no other qualifications except that of a willful lyar)
I take the liberty to advise you to amend your conduct, and employ the few
remaining days you have to spend there in making atonement for those you have so
foolishly and wickedly passed, and observe a conduct which may hereafter entitle
you to the title of V.D.M. which you have been pleased to annex to your name,
which appellation you as much deserving of as one of your former profelytes,
Anna V. Dyck, when she made a recantation of certain crimes to which you are no
stranger and declared her cloathed in white, and as innocent as an Angel!
Tunis Van Wagenen
Ten Dollars Reward – Run away from the subscriber, living
in Flatbush, in the Town of Kingston, and county of Ulster, on the night of the
22 instant. A Negro Man Slave, named Jack, aged 21 years, a jolly, smart fellow;
had on when he went away a grey linsey woolsey great coat; a reddish colored
coat, much faded, he also took with him
a linsey woolsey great under coat, a pair of grey ___ overalls, and a pair of very thick buckskin leather breeches;
his right foot is remarkable, turned out, being stiff in the joint, by reason of
a wound in the ancle, and his ____ in the brow easily seen – he has a mark
just above his nose. Whoever will apprehend the said Negro, for that his master
will get him again, shall be entitled to the above reward.
Monday March 11, 1793
Died at the Great-Imbaught, on Friday morning last, after a tedious illness, Mrs. Eleanor Van Orden, wife of Mr. Peter Van Orden and daughter of John B. Dumond, Esq., aged 26.
Monday March 18, 1793
To John Schuneman – I, from your peremptory denial of
certain falsehoods of your circulation, in answer to my charges against you,
contained in the Catskill Packet, expected to find something in answer to my
reply, which was dated Catskill, Feb. 2, 1793. In answer to my charging you with
a scandalous and malicious report which respects me, expected to find something
satisfactory. But to my surprise find nothing contained in your address to the
public, but the same ill-founded reasonings that first dictated your guilty
conscience to be capable of reviling and (with your usual duplicity) to declare
in the public prints you never had entertained a thought to injure my
reputation: in answer to which, I have, in the Catskill Packet, subsequent to
your weak and false address to the public, by a spirited and true reply to your
puerile and ill-founded reasoning, convinced you of infallibility of your
address, as well as the falsehoods by you asserted in that foolish and
scandalous production; in which you have proved yourself a willful lyar, and
fully corresponds with every charge
brought by me against you, as well in the prints as in private conversation.
From those and other corroborating circumstances, I have every reason to flatter
myself and believe, the arguments laid down in my last address to you have
carried conviction to your guilty conscience, and will be a monitor to you in
future, how you attack a man who is in the esteem of his neighbors, and prevent,
but such an evil example, the disagreeable efforts which will and might be the
result of such a disgraceful conduct. I am now determined to call you before a
tribunal, which (according to the laws on the land) will tell you, you ought to
let the characters of your inoffensive neighbors alone, and be made to answer
for the consequences attending such mal practice in the future.
Tunis Van Wagenen
To Tunis Van Wagenen – I have observed your publications,
in the Farmer’s Register, printed in Kingston, in the Catskill Packet and the
Hudson Gazette, respecting a report, by you said to be circulated by my father;
I have also observed his answer, in which he denies the charge by you alleged.
The truth is, my father did hear a report, the general circumstances of which,
were similar to those mentioned in your publications; this report my father has
mentioned in conversation, but unluckily that report had no relation to you, but
to one Henry Van Wagenen. Neither ___ my father ever relate it as referring to
you. In the relation of this report, my father had not the least intention if
injuring either you or Henry Van Wagenen; neither did he know, at that time,
whether the fact was true of with of you; but as the same report still remains,
as to Henry Van Wagenen, there seems to be some reason to believe it may be true
in regard to him. If you had paid attention to the denial of my father, and when
he says, if you had acted more prudent, and investigated the fact, you would
have heard how the matter stood, which would have prevented any further
altercation. But as you have been pleased to take a different course, and have
not only continued your gross abuse, but have added a malicious falsehood,
reflecting on the character of his profession as a clergyman, I have thought
proper to come forward with a few observations, that those unacquainted with you
may not be missed, and that you real character, as a person void of principle,
debauched and abandoned to an infamous life, may be known: that you have no
character to lose, and it cannot be expected that you regard the reputation of
any other. Those known to you in the counties of Albany, Ulster, Montgomery and
the western parts, in which you have been and resided, are knowing to your being
a notorious drunkard, and vile lyar, not worthy of notice. That the public may
have a true idea of you, where you are not known, I shall mention a few facts of
which you have been guilty. – Do you remember how you have defrauded the
people at Shinglekill, in the sale of those lands which did not belong to you?
Do you not know that you deceived the people, and have to this day defrauded the
people out if the money received from them? Do you remember how you deceived my
father-in-law? Do you remember your deceitful conduct with many inholders, how
you have obtained their substance and defrauded them, leaving them to look for
their just dues? I could enumerate many more of your base deeds, but the above
are sufficient to convince every discerning person of your character; and I
stand ready to prove what I have asserted when called upon in a legal way. If
you see fit to publish any further notorious falsehoods, I shall take no further
notice of you.

To Martin G. Schuneman
Having been informed that you have (since my several publications which proved your father a notorious lyar) attempted to vindicate his malpractice and false aspersions respecting me, by way of answer to my charges against him, with a number of false and malicious reports against me, I conceive it a duty incumbent on me to reply to the falsehood, folly and ignorance with which this performance (which I am confident is not yours) is replete.
You in the address say, your father in a former publication denied the fact contained in mine: -- this is true -- he did deny them. But give me leave to inform you, that such denial proves him a lyar, as you will find by a piece of mine, in which I address him, in the Catskill Packet, March 25th, 1793; in which I refer to a large number of his neighbors and connections who would tell him, that he had reported me to be the person who had deservedly shared the fate of one who had been guilty of robbing and murdering.
You also say in the same paragraph, that the report your father had made in conversation respecting me, "unluckily had no relation to me; but to one Henry Van Wagenen, and that your father had never related it as referring to me, neither did he know at that time whether the fact was true as to either of us; but as the same report still remains as to Henry Van Wagenen, there seems to be some reason to believe it may be true in regard to him." The language in the first part of your address which is directed to me, is intended by you to exculpate your father from being considered as capable or guilty on insinuating lies and falsehoods.
But give me leave to inform you, that this subterfuge will not do; your father has, it can be proved, reported that I was the identical person who had been executed in the Massachusetts Bay, for the crimes before alluded to. Your father has since endeavoured to evade the business by saying it was one Henry Van Wagenen, and not Tunis Van Wagenen. Do you know that your lying father has reported that he had read an account of my execution in the Western Star? Do you know that his uniform practice has been (with his usual duplicity) to impose on the weak, uninformed part of the community, and with his coadjutors, to betray the innocent; and that his language, as a clergyman, is a disgrace to the pulpit?
Do you know that I have the fullest proof that no Henry Van Wagenen has ever been executed in Massachusetts Bay, or any part thereof, for robbing and murdering a collector; and that the wolf in sheep's cloathing, who circulated the falshood is as notorious a lyar, as you are a disgrace to the human species?
Do you know that your appointment to the office you hold, and disgrace by your daily conduct, is repugnant to the true intent and meaning of the laws of the land, and that, by the oath of office you have taken, and the scandalous conduct you observe, you are an imposter and a villainous intruder on the rights of your fellow citizens?
Does not the laws of the state stare you in the face, and convict you of your double dealing, by receiving the profits of a tavern, when you take the license in the name of a second person, so as to justify your pretensions to your fees of office in your judicial capacity?
At the acceptance of your appointment, you had to take an oath, the tenor of which is, to support the constitution of the United States, and the constitution and laws of the state of New York, honestly, faithfully and impartially: -- how then, after taking so solemn an obligation, could your conscience permit you to violate it? This part if your conduct reminds me if the two thieves, who stole from the honest butcher, the one who had the beef in possession, swore he had stole it, and the thief swore he had it not. How far this fable applies to you, with respect to your being a justice, and receiving emolements arising from a tavern, (by your evading the law, regulating inns, etc and prohibiting justices, being tavern keepers, to to try civil causes) I leave your own guilty conscience and an impartial public to judge. But enough of this -- your late declining to try causes, must convince the world that you are convinced of your error.
As to your charges against me with respect to the people of Shinglekill, if you call on William Harper, Esq., one of the judges of the court of common pleas for the county of Montgomery, and John Addison, Esq., attorney -at-law in Kingston, in that particular, as your heart is full of malevolence, the statement of which I have no time to make; but wish to inform you, that they will prove I have been greatly the sufferer, and not the aggressor.
And in respect to your father-in-law: if his mains could appear, he would not only deny that I ever defrauded him, but would declare you were not his son-in-law.
You also call me a drunkard. This assertion I suppose you expected would injure me in the opinion of the public. In this false assertion you fail, as well as in the others; every person of any degree of respectability, who is acquainted with me, knows the reverse; and though I can, and will enjoy myself with my friends, (the circle of which you can never enter) I never have been drunk; and if I was, not at your expense.
Your ludicrous performance scarcely deserved am answer; but since I have gone so far, and questions become fashionable, I have a few to ask you.
Do you know that the persons who recommended you to the office you hold, did not know your character, except one, who is the tool of party and contention, as long as it will answer his own private views? Do you know that since the revolution, he has been an enemy to this state and of the United States, and was a colleague with a late member of Congress, who had the audacity, in the face of his fellow citizens, to burn the same Constitution , in the city of Albany, which he afterwards swore to maintain? Do you know that you are a dupe to his sentiments and that he forms your political creed, which you implicitly believe?
Do you know that I am fully convinced that he is, and has been, your dictator in the falsehoods contained in your address to me? And that he might be acquitted on a hearing before a corrupt majority of the legislature of this state, the same as the seven canvassors were, for his conduct while in a late lucrative office, still his conduct would not, in my opinion, bear a favourable construction by a majority of the people.
It may be observed that these questions have little or nothing to do with respect to the present business; I admit they have not; but must observe, that they have more analogy to it, than the fruitless attempt you have made to vindicate the conduct of your father, by coming forward without answering the charges I brought and proved against him.
I am possessed of other facts, which would condemn you, which I reserve until I see the reply of the demagogue who writes for you. Tunis Van Wagenen
