There is a speech attributed to William Lynch which has been circulated on the internet and elsewhere, and which even Louis Farrakhan referred to at the Million Man March of October 16, 1995.
Still, if there had been a William Lynch whose word was so valued that he should deliver such a short speech in person rather than in writing, then certainly his speech would have been reprinted and commented upon in the local newspapers.
Also, he claims to want to give an "outline of action," yet no such plan is clearly given.
But the letter was never “discovered,” but rather it “appeared” – bypassing the official historical circuits and making its way via internet directly into the canon of American racial conspiratoria.
This alone is somewhat suspicious, as very few speeches of this type seem to have been recorded verbatim at the time unless the text was also written in a document such as a letter, a handbill, or in a newspaper.
