Glad to see Paul's response. Washington, as the author of the book and
holding the copyrights to it, I am yet to see that he has not financially
benefitted from the book directly or indirectly. In view of this, I stand
by my assumption that pecuniary gain is to a small or large extent was
behind his writing his book. If any one has additional information on
this, I would welcome it. If anyone does not agree with my assumption,
that is ok with me. They are entitled to their opinion.
