Well Stephen, I am sorry to report that it is neither.

Here is the man's own signature, which I scanned from an original letter written by the Fifth Auditor, and clearly shows his name to be Pleasonton.

This is also the way his name is spelled in official government reports from the period when he was serving as Fifth Auditor of the Treasury.

If not down right irritating, it certainly was not pleasant.
