I recall that everything he quotes, he has cited the source and I believe
the sources can be confirmed. Also I think Tillett wrote the book which was
a thesis he submitted and if this be so, unless the sources are credible and
verifiable, the thesis would not have been approved.
I would still be looking forward to any documented errors in his book.
Also there is book on CWL under preparation by Peter Michel and would very
much like to see what he has in it when it is published.
I would like to make it very very clear that I am not against *anyone*
*personally* -- be it CWL or anyone else. But at the same time, I have no
problem in facing any facts about any individual, whether the facts are
good, bad, indifferent, beautiful or ugly.
