is further sought to show that the re recent

false accounts, knowing them to be
false, on which the government had
put out moneys. Not only did they
know the accounts were false, but
they procured the persons to make the

that they would receive money for

They concealed their unlawful acts

when Dr. True discovered the facts he
recommended their dismissal. The sec
