Yes I did hear that from JHE, who has photographs of them. When my current bandwidth permits, I'll take another look at Mahatma letters ... If I ever finish my dissertation on dreams. Sigh. It's interesting that they would show the Mahatma letters. I hear the British Museum is absolutely fascinating. A friend was there and said his glance happened to fall on a little rock in a corner exhibit with a little card next to it. Walking up for closer examination, he found the card said, "Rosetta stone". Typical British understatement! In America it would be sponsored by Coca-Cola in neon signs with Rosetta stone t-shirts for sale next to it.
