Hi Monty,

The reliability I speak of is the reliability of the source. The provenience is not known. That is a problem.

And at the same time one must consider, when there is a handwriting match as in this case, what the reason for the match is.

Pierre,

You are, bizarrely, replying to a post made by Monty on 13 November 2015 (#86) which you replied to on the very same day (#98). You said back then:

"there is no "source itself", there is only our interpretations of it."

Now you are saying that there is a source itself and you were speaking of the reliability of it.

To say I'm confused is a bit of an understatement.
