Evidence:
George Grote to 'Mr Bain,' 4 Septemberr 1868: 'In coming down here [Long Bennington] yesterday, I read the September number of the "Fortnightly," seeing by the advertisement that it contained an article by you. I read it with very great pleasure: it seems to me most excellent; it is the lecture (apparently) that I did [italics]not[end italics] hear last May at the Royal Institution. The same number contained also an admirable article upon the Science of History, written with great ability, and in the best spirit, by an American author, whose name I never heard before -- John Fiske [comments further on article] [...] There was also another good article in the same number -- on John Wilkes.'
