Re: skullandcrossbones.org

Thanks to Jean de St. Sigeron, we have tracked down our man
with alacrity that may perhaps make us worthy of Adam Sinclair.

Dexter Wright turns out to be a very thoughtful character who
volunteers to add attributions to any page that needs them.
I repost here one of his responses to me with his permission.

He may also be joining the list; I've sent him the instructions.

Meanwhile, his pages have already provoked some interesting
discussions about symbols and history on the list.

Thanks for your very appropriate response.

I think the group did a fine job of organizing information in a coherent way
from a novel point of view.

The only thing that's missing is attributions.  In addition to the material
that came from
(probably from when it was hosted as http://www.mids.org/sinclair/)

I think you'll find there is material that came from various other places
as well, such as

So far as I know, no one is particularly upset about this, but a few
attributions here and there would be appreciated.  Besides, as you say,
a few links would probably produce more hits.

Do you mind if I forward your letter over to a mailling list I run,
to which many of the people who wrote the other web pages subscribe?
