the most likely reason that the Soldier Prince porter did not recognize a photo of Cassidy is that it was SK&EP who bought tickets and boarded the ship. The porter never saw Cassidy.

I can't say why the USHS does not show the original, though I will say that it is not out of the question that an archive will guard the original of a valuable, much sought after document, showing only a copy to researchers. It's also possible, I guess, that the USHS has misplaced the original or that it has, as they say, gone missing.

As for testing, yes, it involves taking a sample of the paper and ink, and can cost several thousand dollars. No archive in its right mind would undertake such an endeavor just because one person cries fake. Dan

    Has it occurred to you they may not want to let "just anybody" handling a priceless historical document; or that they don't want to just haul it out because someone asks to see it? I suspect if Dan... more

      Dan would stand a chance of a snowball in hell getting into that vault or it's contents. They don't recognize his as anything but a gentile.

        So is this one of those "only a high-level Mormon official can gain entry" things?

          Actually, in my discussions with the librarians and curators, I think that at least half of the staff are not LDS.

      Vince, Not to be overly dramatic, but this document belongs to the people of Utah. If it exists, Bob, Brett, or myself should be able to see it. When I went, they acted dumb like the XEROX was all... more

        Chris, First, of all, there are at least three different repositories that they use to store their collections. The most commonly used items are store on site, in the back room, so to speak. In other ... more

          Yeah but if Mitt Romney went in and asked for it they would bring it on a silver platter. They play favorites all the time .And other little games.
      • Re: ChrisVince Garcia, Mon Nov 27 8:43am
        YOU don't need it to be fake. That comment was a question to Pat who has this big theory that Butch never went to SA. SHE, if anyone, would need it to be fake because if it is not it hurts her theory
        • VincePat, Mon Nov 27 10:22am
          Now you're telling me what I think? Are you a mind reader? I don't know if Robert Leroy Parker went to SA or not. That's the whole point. Someone named James Ryan went . Whoever he was we don't know... more

        Chris, Here's the protocol. Historical documents held by archives are considered established otherwise. That's not a theory, that's a protocol. The skeptic, the challenger, has to come... more

          for some reason, the word "until" causes the OWR software to burp. Even when I reposted it in the subject line above, it created ellipses. Dan
