Notes: The cutting from the 'Norwich Mercury' reprints the text of Irving's Letter 4321, mentioning an article by Mr Branch in the 'Cheltenham Examiner' betting 6d that the moves were not in order for that date (12th century) with other observations about anachronism. A largely illegible note by Irving at head suggests a reply that in the light of Branch's claims the moves will not be disclosed.
