“This short essay which began as much more—a lengthy work of some detail. I have made a number of attempts at rewriting it. This in hand is not much. Nor is this the most scholarly effort, though I believe I am dealing with a subject for which very little evidence exists one way or another. Most of what is ‘known’ is probably not really known. Add to that the probably fact however someone sees something, it only is to them what it is from a certain point of view.”
