Summary It appears that the office of the Superintendent of Arms at Springfield has been broken open and considerable depredations made on his papers. This burlary occurred six to eight weeks ago but recently was leaked out by General Sheppard. The missing papers relate to charges brought against someone so Simmons should be wary of the authenticity of papers presented to him by that person.
