Chris,
Here's the protocol. Historical documents held by archives are considered authenti...il established otherwise. That's not a theory, that's a protocol.

The skeptic, the challenger, has to come up with something other than he wants the archive to spend several thousand dollars and damage the document just to satisfy his curiosity.

No one has come up with any credible evidence that the 10 August 1902 letter is anything other than legitimate. "It's fake!," as our colleague likes to say, is not credible evidence. In fact, what evidence we do have supports the letter's authenticity: the Murdock family donated a copy to the USHS as early as 1965; the handwriting compares favorably with other examples of Cassidy's handwriting; the internals of the letter re the Cholila valley, the road to Chile, etc., are things no one in the US could have known even as late as 1965 when a copy of the letter was donated; and, finally, there is a wealth of evidence that Cassidy was in Argentina in the period the letter was sent. Best, Dan

    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.

      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
        • Re: VinceVince Garcia, Mon Nov 27 2:46pm
          You've been saying this theory for years here! Sometimes, when someone finds out something, or points out something (as I did recently) that hurts it you back off slightly and equivocate, but you... more

          Does this mean Cocker and Cassidy were Gay? LOL

          I would never skewer you my old friend. In fact this makes more sense than anything I've read in a long while.Except the part about Harvey .

        You ripped apart the Hot Springs museum because they had not tested or proven their holdings. Dan you are a great shape shifter. And let us not forget that the USHS also has holdings from KRB and... more

          Pat, So if I follow your, um, logic correctly, just because Kerry Ross Boren made stuff up, then Pat Schroeder is equally Munchausenesque? Is that how it works/ Dan

          Pat, you work under the assumption that if A is X, then B is X, or looking at it a different way, is A is not X then B is not X. Just because Lula made up the story of Cassidy's return does not mean... 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
