Francis Horner had been Jeffrey's second in his duel with Moore over Jeffrey's review of Moore's Epistles, Odes and Other Poems. The contest was forestalled by the authorities and allegations quickly arose in the newspapers that the guns were loaded with paper pellets. Moore's letter to Horner, asking him to publish his explanation of events, was written two days after the duel.
