The “do not fret” line is very, very tired by now — and remember what I said? I have no obligation whatsoever to “present” this material to anyone. It’s you who’s talking as if there were some moral imperative to “present” it, so I’m challenging you to practice what you preach.
Where do you get this 20 years from? I viewed the journal in 1998. Is your arithmetic as bad as your reasoning in general? And again, as you clearly need reminding, I had no obligation then and I have no obligation now to undertake the further work and expense of putting the material online. I made no promise to do so.
You know perfectly well by now how difficult this material is. Should I quote again your various statements about the difficulty of the handwriting? Unlike you, I prefer to study such material thoroughly before stating any conclusion (let alone rushing into print with hysterical yelpings).
In due course. Care to put a figure on that? I see a need to press you on this, as I am still waiting for (a) your excuse for contradicting yourself on the drawing captioned “in Campbell’s Chamber” and (b) your evidence that R. W. H. Howard Vyse was (as you claimed) in Egypt in 1842.
Given all of the other images you’ve put online (including, we may note, this one), it surely shouldn’t take you long to put up the ones most relevant to this discussion. Should it?
