Re: Gen. St. Clair info found
Many thanks for looking up the reference; I'll see if I can find it.
The tantalizing thing about these little parenthetical comments is that they
have to be interpreted by our own preconceived notions. Does the comment
"(pronounced Sinclair)" mean "(pronounced Sinclair by Gen. Arthur)" or
"(commonly pronounced Sinclair by the general population)". Where is Sherlock
Holms when we need him?
Cheers, Hal St.Clair
