LUTHER MARTIN, afterwards nick-named the ?bull-dog of federalism,? was at this time the leading Anti-federalist in Maryland. From his pen came the pamphlet entitled Genuine Information?Relative to the Proceedings of the General Convention; and when the "Landholder," attacked Elbridge Gerry, he began this series of articles in defense of that gentleman, but eventually, by the replies, was compelled to continue the series as a personal vindication.
