| The Two Georges|
POD: c. mid-1760s

Morton Johnston was the chairman of the New Liverpool branch of the Independence Party. Johnston had the look of a prosperous barrister or politico: handsome, ruddy, moustachioed, with his greying brown hair combed over a growing bald spot. Since he had been the former and was the latter, it was not surprising.
The day after the theft of The Two Georges, Colonel Thomas Bushell interviewed Mr. Johnston. Johnston denied the Independence Party's involvement and stated he had no personal knowledge regarding the theft or of the Sons of Liberty. Having no evidence to the contrary, Colonel Bushell had to accept this statement for the time being.
