Thanks for sharing you vivid fantasy life, but you really should get out more and take some healthy exercise.
So, let’s see. You approached the manuscript with an overwhelming emotional and practical agenda (books must be sold!) of finding evidence of forgery in it (how unbiased!) — an agenda which has already produced one set of mendacious misrepresentations (those sorry drawings and the sorry articles containing them) — and now you say you’ve found in the text (which by you own admission is all but unreadable) something about Vyse instructing Hill (and Raven?) to paint something in Campbell’s Chamber. Now, seeing as how Vyse really did instruct Hill to paint things (the text “Campbell’s Chamber” among them, as well as the 1:1 facsimile copies of the marks), I’m sure that there is some such wording in the manuscript. I look forward to a deep, rich belly-laugh when you finally trot out what you imagine to be a breakthrough discovery, announced with such vainglory.
