„John Baldwin was Examined before the Reconstruction Committee - He was asked if Jeff Davis could be tried before a Jury in the South & convicted of Treason. He replied - Yes - that Mr. Davis (& himself) had been guilty of treason & if they were tried for it he saw no reason why they shouldn’t be convicted. Tell Hugh (for me) that the difference between me & him is that I committed Treason & am proud of it - he committed Treason & is ashamed of it. Baldwin’s testimony was in 1867. Dick Smith in [struck: the] an Editorial [inserted: in the Enquirer] was very severe on him [struck: on him]: Baldwin replied in a letter. If Sam Yost has files of his paper no doubt you can find it.“

„Riel, our brother, is dead, victim of his devotion to the cause of the Métis of which he was leader, victim of fanatism and treason; of the fanatism of Sir John and of some other friends of his; of the treason of three of our own who, in order to keep their wallet, have sold their brother.“

—  Honoré Mercier Canadian politician 1840 - 1894
Riel, notre frère, est mort, victime de son dévouement à la cause des Métis dont il était le chef, victime du fanatisme et de la trahison; du fanatisme de Sir John et de quelques-uns de ses amis; de la trahison de trois des nôtres qui, pour garder leur portefeuille, ont vendu leur frère.
