“Rockingham” (1907) [2]

[[ 5482. ]] The Bedford flag. [^1]

“Vericola” and W. T. R. M. give welcome and unexpected support as to this flag not being carried in King Philip’’s War. [*1][*2] So I am encouraged to repeat my unanswered query of Aug. 4, 1906, viz.: “”What real evidence exists that this flag was ever in any battle?”” [*3] The unconvincing and contradictory testimony of the “witnesses was referred to then and the subsequent arguments in the “Stars and Stripes”… lend no light. [*4] Since this Bedford flag will doubtless be “lifted up for adoration” upon the coming 19th of April, now is the apt time for the production of any competent evidence on the authenticity of this alleged relic.
