I should not at this point have to tell you whether or not Vyse was first into the chambers.
Vyse at all times was working with numerous other people. Perring catalogued the marks in the course of making sectional views of the chambers. Vyse wanted better, so he set Hill to making 1:1 facsimile copies. The first set of these was checked for accuracy and signed by a group of witnesses. There is no evidence of Vyse having made a personal catalogue of the marks. (There is not such catalogue in his manusript journal.)
All of this stuff about Vyse frantically changing the marks (why would he?) has been properly consigned to La-La Land.
