Re: : the Duchess of Windsor
You did not misspell "Wallace." Your using it was like your addressing me as
Grady." Good researchers pay attention to detail, describe their findings
with precision, and carefully note their sources.
You wrote a year ago that Wally Simpson "has Sinclair connections," leading
most clansmen to believe she was blood related to Sinclairs. You did not
write, for example, that her husband had "Sinclair connections." Now you
quibble that it was not "a Sinclair connection" but a "Harden connection."
Even my sixth graders would have known the difference between "a Sinclair
connection" and a "connection to Sinclairs."
Your persisting in arguing about this is reminiscent of several weeks ago
when you persisted in arguing about what "surround" means. When you wrote
that French King Louis XIV "surrounded" himself with cabinet ministers, you
had your hand called on that with a historical source. The King may have met
apart with his ministers but he "surrounded" himself with the higher French
nobility to keep an eye on them.
Now, here is your blowing off the source of your claim of Wally's "Sinclair
family connections" (not your original phrase) by airily saying "both
genealogies are readily available."
The real question is that if you knew "the connection" and the genealogy from
the beginning, why did you try to set me up and bait me?
