David, please, don't be so high-handed with those who have asked 
questions about this historic ring out of genuine interest and 
concern for its future. I can think of a number of instances where 
you have been equally persistent and irritating in your line of 
questioning on this list (Canterbury Cathedral 9th springs to mind), 
so please allow others the same priviledge.

I thought, in an earlier posting, you had said that David Potter was 
the correspondent for this tower, so why will it be you who has the 
authority to decide what is put in Dove?
