Check the date. I think that was an old spammer
Thanks Tim, I thought it might be that. I received it 24 October but have only just seen it.
There was a time when I was admitting members without full disclosure. I apologize. I have removed myself as an admin.
Tim, no apology necessary.
I took your advice and started to look at Converse's Analytical. It is an amazing work but I just couldn't get on with it. However, having got my 1880/90 17fret no name out of it's case, I am now totally engrossed in Ellis's publications. Thank you for your help.
