Evidence:
Marginal marks show signs of George Otto Trevelyan's close reading, as of a proof - he corrects errors, e.g. where the text says "many would prefer expatriating themselves forever to America to serving under the Buonaparte dynasty", GOT crosses through "Buoanparte" and substitutes "Bourbon".
