"If Van Curen can conclusively prove that Richard McCool believes it is nonsense for me to spell a name the exact way in which the name is spelled in a historical document by Maria Van Siclen for her father, Cornelius Van Siclen, then I am inclined to believe that Richard McCool may run with the same pack as Van Curen types.
"However, before I accept such allegations by Van Curen about a person I don't know, I would like to read something from Richard McCool about what he may perceive as an error by myself when I use a name as it is spelled on a historical record and the spelling is the earliest and only recorded spelling for the name used.
"I am somewhat curious as to why you feel you have to repeatedly refer to Richard McCool for support? You have been doing that for nearly two years. Perhaps he is your mentor? You appear to be concerned about Richard McCool impressions so why don't you write him.
"I believe you, Van Curen, are placing words into Richard McCool's mouth, hoping that he will not call you on it!"
You are a very reckless fellow and, it seems clear, a man with no shame.
I am not Mr. Van Curen's mentor, but I would like to be yours.
If you will accept this arrangement, my first suggestion is that you "stand down."
My second suggestion is that you begin to study genealogy, quietly and to yourself.
