I have never read Glover's version of the Holmes Manuscript. (Part 2 of the Golden Dream). Don't even own a copy, so I can't look up your references myself.
By "the manuscript" I am assuming you mean "Glover's book" (Part 2 of the Golden Dream) rather than the "Holmes manuscript"? (We have to keep these two sources separated when referring to them)gollum wrote:
Glover posits that Dick must have followed Waltz sometime about 1880. Kind of hard if he didn't meet him until 1888.
Waltz last being at his mine in 1884 pg. 45
The manuscript also states that Waltz was last at his mine during the winter of 1892.
I think either you or Glover made a typo there, because Waltz died in 1891... or is that one of the things you were trying to point out?
As you have pointed out. A lot of people believe there are as many direct contradictions in Glover's book on the manuscript, as there are in the original manuscript itself. The old "Garbage in, Garbage out" syndrome... expanded from a small manuscript, into a whole book.
