Elder, a Catholic priest and President of the Catholic St. Joseph's College, successfully sued Rice, the author of a series of anti-Catholic articles. As one would expect, Rice blamed his loss on the political influence of "the Roman clergy" and "Popery." Rice's Account reviews the case from his perspective and adds prefatory chapters on "the subject of celibacy, Nunneries, &c. designed to show the immorality of such establishments" (iv).
