The first and last quote in the Unsourced section are surely the same thing. Can we just remove the first or should they both be kept (but linked in some way)? --nawab 15:16, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Done. The issue is dealt with in more detail in the WP article, and refs given for access to the dozen or so reports which survived. These two quotes are reasonably typical. --Macdonald-Ross 07:03, 19 July 2008 (UTC)


I added a second version of the "extremely stupid" quote, since one of the sources mentioned for it (at http://aleph0.clarku.edu/huxley/Book/Recep.html) had a version not containing the "...of me..." phrase. However most of the online versions of even this text report it as not containing the latter phrase, which I am beginning to suspect is a modern interpolation. Further research on this is warranted for anyone who wishes to pursue it (I shall not, I think).17:01, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
