James Boswell died in 1795 believing he had touched and kissed a cache of Shakespeare's original letters and papers discovered by a Mr. Ireland. His friend, Edmond Malone, publicly exposed the lot as a forgery just a year later.
Life with Boswell:
Stewart visited Patrick Heron's Kirroughtrie during Boswell's stay at the place on October 1, 1762. Boswell described Stewart as "a man of sense and business". Stewart seems to have been a relation of Heron's, his father's second wife being a Heron herself.
