Defense of A Lady

To the Editor:

. . . I enjoyed H. Stuart Hughes’s article “On Being A Candidate” [February], but much as I appreciated his candid expressions of post-campaign feelings and thoughts, I must protest his description of Mrs. Elizabeth McCarthy, one of Massachusetts’s (and the country’s) leading handwriting experts.

As an attorney, I feel it my duty to state that Mrs. McCarthy is held in the highest professional esteem by attorneys, judges, and other persons engaged in handwriting analysis, and that I deem it extremely unfair to a person of her high caliber to refer to any “shenanigans by Mrs. McCarthy.”

Her integrity is certainly reaffirmed by her failure to find any discrepancies in the signatures for Mr. Hughes.
