As your discussion point involved the book Tintinnalogia, I think most
of us thought you were talking about the seventeenth and eighteenth

I wasn't aware that anyone had implied there was a definitive answer,
merely that some of the speculation being put forward had already been
addressed by previous researchers!

As Chris Pickford said in an earlier posting, "do we REALLY know all the
answers on this, and - anyway - isn't it fun to speculate?"   I merely
pointed out that is was better to speculate from the standpoint of what
we know, rather than what we think we might know!
