Hi AS,

But the salient issue os how much time would Wallace have had in reality. I suggested a maximum of 11 minutes, but that isn't realistic if considered objectively.

Thus, 11 minutes would...

I really have great respect for David, but have you noticed that he has a tendency not to concede, or give ground, on a point under any circumstances?

Except Wallace stated that Julia would admit someone calling themselves Qualtrough. And if, say, Parry was the thief, and wasn't caught in the act, there would be suspicion but no proof against him.
