 If this description is wrong, then for me, it throws
suspicion upon other information that Purucker has expanded upon.
The more often I find him wrong, the more cautious and critical I
would become about his writings. If his descriptions turned out
to be wrong often enough, and his errors pervasive enough, I
would eventually discount his writings altogether at some point.

In another message, Brenda continues:

 Why not? What kind of proof do you want to offer?
