"We're having a fund raising auction. Is there anything worth buying?" Ms. Truth asked.
Troy looked down his list. "Most items are overpriced or not worth buying. The items to buy would be a wig that King Henry wore, a letter from the Duke of Walishington to Queen Elizabeth I and an old English letter written by King George II."

Ms. Truth looked disgustedly at Troy and told him he was a fraud. How did she know?



Answer

King George II lived in France. He didn't know English.
Queen Elizabeth I didn`t exist when the letter was written. The Queen's name was Queen Elizabeth, because there hadn't been another Queen Elizabeth before her.
The wig may have been real, but Ms. Truth no longer believed him.
