we.. FROM PAGE ONE at last I had to write: " There must be some limit to this, and no reasonable reader will be surprised that 1 fix that limit now " (p. 200).
The'worst case is told in full detail, wrth page references, on pp. 203-4. Here I have space for only the briefest summary. • He accused me of manipulating documents in controveisy with Mr. Oldmeadow, editor of The Tablet. Ile added : " I call this dishonest; what do you call it?"; Offer Oldmeadow a frank and decent apology " ; " 1 have convicted you of misquoting."
I turned upon hint, and demanded chapter and verse: this demand he ignored. 1 then repeated, with the emphasis of capitals, " THIS CHALLENGE YOU HAVE IGNORED ONCE; BUT YOU SHALL NOT END LIKE THAT." He wrote five more letters, yet still no notice of my demand. At last I pressed again in capitals: " YOU HAVE PERSISTENTLY IGNORED THIS CHALLENGE FOR NEARLY TWO MONTHS." Even then, no answer. But, later on, a most fortunate chance enabled me to bring Mr. Oldmeadow himself into court, and he admitted that he could not support Mr. Lunn's accusation.
