I repeat what I already told you.I have printed out FOUR Chronologies for THREE people who want my Branch-books on their branch; and I printed the FOURTH with the intention of sending it to you.At THAT point Mary went into the hospital two weeks ago today.She was in for five days; she came home for the weekend (as it turned out) and started having chest pains last Sunday night. She went back to the emergency room. She has now been in the hospital yet another week.This morning she had the catheterization procedure. I'm going back over there in a few minutes. I have been here long enough to field a few business phone calls.
Now I told you earlier that you had no reason to expect to get a "Chronology" before those other three persons, and you don't. They STILL don't have their Branch-Books. But something NEW has arisen.You have shown MORE and MORE that you make irrational interpretations of data.I have had second thoughts about entrusting you with a Chronology.I've become convinced that you'd apply your twisted thinking to turn it against me.You have shown a cruel propensity to put me and my life's Fly-Family work down every way you can think of.
I have become thoroughly disgusted with the utter impossibility of reasoning with you and your attitude. I tell you time and again that I never thought the way you portrayed my hypothesis in your Books.Know what, ? You STILL don't understand my position on the early relationships. Bonnie does, Mary Catherine does, Joe Stout does, Jack Allen Fly does. Terry Davis does.They may not think I have the necessary PROOFS they'd like to see before stating the hypothesis, but they respect that I have a right to say, "This is the way I think it fits together."
But YOU.You simply can't get it right as to WHAT I think. You constantly allude to things I DON'T think as if they were a "given" in my position.
You keep telling me that you've sent this and that.I don't think I have had ANYTHING from you, that I can find, with reasonable effort, for ten to fifteen years back. We didn't correspond.I lost track of you. In the period before THAT I put together data on THOUSANDS of people.To find something specific in that MASS of files requires a MAJOR undertaking.The DISTILLATE of that correspondence went into the records in the computer.
Part of my giving up on co-operation from you has to do with your unexplained procrastination on producing the substance of the Jeremiah (early 1600's) and Miss Dupree. More, you WON'T tell me about the Orphans George and Lavina/Lavinea/Lavinia.You won't even clarify the spelling of her name for me AS YOU FOUND IT IN CARROLL Co. If you sent that info to me 15 years ago, I may not have tumbled to the significance of it.
Take notice that I told you about finding reference to Deakins as an upright citizen in Missouri; but I do NOT recall asking you for anything out of your records, at the present time.It is closed as an issue of interest between us. -I keep being incredulous when you refer to my pushing you for "Deakins" records.It simply isn't so. Probably one of our last meaningful exchanges was when you sent me the Deakins records originally.I judge that was about 1985.
I have complained since I have been on the net (Feb.1999) that you persistently put up "straw men" so that you can knock them down and, you assume, me with them.
So YOU and YOU ALONE are responsible for my changed attitude about sharing my Chronology with you.You make it apparent that you can be counted on to make wrong interpretations of the data of which it consists.
I'm genuinely sorry, for I had begun to have hopes of a fruitful co-operation and sharing of data.Your REPEATED references to the father/son: father/grandson deeds as being interpretable ONLY one way (father/son) makes me know that your mindset is such that you CANNOT make unbiased interpretation of the data.
So don't any longer look for the Chronology to show up at your doorstep.I'm too apprehensive now to mail it, even when it becomes ready to send, which it is not.
Fortunately my personal health is good, but Mary's is not. I still have my little business to manage.There is not enough time. Neither hours in the day nor days in the week. It would help if YOU would stop being so quick to misunderstand everything I post, or take such a position for sheer mischief, because it pleases you to diminish the importance of my work and my "overview" of these 11,000 names in my data base.
