Subject: The Truth About Sinclair History

>     There is currently a lively discussion on another discussion list

> Rosslyn Chapel and Castle" by a Reverend John  Thompson, F.S.A. and
> to the Forth Earl of Rosslyn.  The book was published in 1892 by St Giles
> Printing Company and J. Menzies & Co.. To the person that recently
> the book, it is an "absolute goldmine" and "contains answers to all our
> questions."
>     The thrust of recent discussion on the list is that Rev. Thompson had
> access to actual records kept at Dysart House and promises, therefore, to
> offer excellent rebuttal to Sinclair history built up the works of Father
> Hay.  Apparently the Thompson book has many drawings, diagrams and photos,
> genealogy - you name it.
>     Does anyone know any thing about this book?  I have not read Hay,
> although he is often referenced in other publications I have read.  I know
