My how the termites have feasted here
Fri Jan 5, 2018 10:40pm

I was on a plane all afternoon and evening back from California on business. But have done an initial search of my old email back to 2016. Here is what I have in my email box. I have emails with posted results on both Kew and Newfoundland with receipts for :

Herminius crew download link
Bellarden crew download link
Soldier Prince crew pay pal
Honorius crew pay pal

The payments are made through pay pal on some of these via reciept with a link for a limited time donwload of the documents and a reference number which is good as I can check against that. So I don't have huge amounts of correspondence. But my inquiries are either to Mr. Kory Penney at the Maritime Museum in Newfoundland or to the National Archives at Kew. I will call both on Monday again to see which download came from which Archive. If I received the Harry Place and Mrs. Harry Place signatures for the Honorius from Kew instead and not from Newfoundland I will issue a correction to the editor that the signatures of the outlaws on Honorius came from Kew whilst Bellarden and Herminius and Soldier Prince came from Newfoundland. I just cannot tell at this point and the article was written over a year ago. I called the Maritime Museum this morning and they do have several downloads that I paid for but Kory was not in with details. So I will narrow it down and if my end note was wrong I will issue a correction. I have no problem issuing a correction as the end result to me and my readers is hopefully what counts. IE = Signatures of the outlaws on Honorius. But I realize after reading the string below that the Kew versus Newfoundland is a big deal and will sort it out as I am the author.

If a correction as to which archive for Honorius is warranted, I realize as well that this will mean extra monies that Negligible and Chris will have to spend to do their lab tests of the signatures as they will have to go to the UK rather than Newfoundland with their lab equipment. But I will check. For reference because I really do not want to miss that part of the adventure. For reference , The mix of crew lists is roughly 10% held at Kew and 75% held at Newfoundland for the crew lists and years I was searching . The other 15% have been lost over time.

    Mark, In your article “Wild Bunch on the High Seas” you claim that the logbook was found in Newfoundland. You make many claims on this forum that you found the signatures in Newfoundland as well.... more

        • Your reference to end note number 30 Mark Mszanski, Sun Jan 7 9:37am
          Chris - I believe your correct. At least I believe one end note number (30 ) should say Kew and not MHA which was an oversight by me in referring to 42 end notes as sources in my article. There are... more

          Chris - You seem to be very worries about The UK Kew versus Newfoundland Maritime archives. I will check next week. The result however is still the same. You got the signatures and the manifest. You... more

            Glad real researches take things a little more serious than you. Otherwise we would spend all our time fact checking.. how many times you been to national archives? Be careful with your answer lol

          Chris. Let's assume for purposes of discussion that the 1902 Honorius crew list is held at Kew not Newfoundland, so what? It's not unreasonable to see how a researcher, communicating with both... more

            I'm sure if I wrote this and had it published, you would would not be so kind. There is more than just a typo in the end note. The story of the "hunt" is inaccurate. According to what you said in a... more

              I would be supportive. Its tough work if you can get it . I look forward to your next article. I don't write and research to make money. I do it as I like the chase. When I have time , I do what I... more

                You weren't so kind to the RR pic we researched. I doubt anything will change. It must have been pretty awesome to see the crew log in person in Kew. Brett

            Are you serious? What does that have to do with the Honorius signatures? Maybe if you show me a grocery receipt I will believe you lol.
          • Wrong year, wrong shipneglib, Fri Jan 5 8:07am
            What does the 1901 Bellarden have to do with the signatures? The signatures came from the Honorius Log from July 1902.

              I sent you an example of one of the receipts - There were quite a few Figure it out -

                Maybe the cold weather is affecting your memory and thinking. Once again, another game of deflection and putting burden on the reader. It's your mistake, fix it.
                • I have no time for you. mark, Fri Jan 5 12:04pm
                  You need to figure it out. The example I sent was just one of the reciept of a few. . I asked for Honorius and bellarden and herminus. Go pay for them. You have all the sources and now the links.
