If you tap into www.poland.com and look for Malcolm Sinclair via a search engine
and click on kamienie sinclaira (the Sinclair stone) you will find some excellent
information on the fate of Malcolm Sinclair on the 28th June, 1739 at the hands
of Russian officers.

It is even suggested that the French merchant, Couturier, was a Russian agent
which is the first time I have heard of this theory.

The web pages also contain some excellent photographs of the monument.

It would seem that there is a lively interest in this story which augurs well for
our plan to restore the monument and more than justifies your decision to
contribute financially towards that restoration.

Good reading.

I wrote the story of Malcolm Sinclair in an article called "Murder Most Foul" which has appeared
in a number of newsletters.  I will try to find a copy and post it (if I can master the art) or, perhaps,
a computer whizz kid will remember the article and do it for me.
