What you say is true, Michael. In any case, it's clear to me that no one in his right mind would have added Condon's phone number under the address. If any reporter had found incriminating writing on Hauptmann's closet trim, he would have been thinking of himself first, ie. Man, have I got scoop for them! And not risking the demolition of his career in news reporting.

    C. Lloyd Fisher had to have been the most incompetent attorney in the history of the legal profession not to take action on the Henry Paynter story. That's if the story were true, which Fisher... more

        Joe, what was the name of the bubblehead that opined that the 3-7154 telephone number was a forgery.

          Not sure, but I think you're referring to Edward Oehler. The latest reference to his comparison is in Dark Corners, Volume 2. You can find the relevant pages if you Google "Edward Oehler Lindbergh."... more

            I went looking for information about Edward Oehler. I didn't find anything. I may have to see if something was published in a pulp True Detective magazine where the word "true" is dubious. I did come ... more

              Michael, is there enough sample writing on the closet trim to determine whether or not Hauptmann was the author?

                We can see that if Henry Paynter wanted to write the 3-7154 telephone number as an imitation of Hauptmann's numerals, a convincing imitation, he did not have enough numbers to use as models from... more

                  I would agree with your findings Michael, as I've previously compared these individual numbers from my copies of Hauptmann's memorandum books and California trip log. And it's really quite... more

                    Joe: Could you ask Script to post/upload a copy of the high-resolution picture(s) he must have taken of the actual molding which he then used to draw his conclusions? Also ask under what... more
