Such fancy footwork!
Yes, you have "sighted" the various sources you use, such as AR7 or
whatever. But, as you are demanding of us, do you "sight" the originals
that are cited in those sources?
Perfectly reputible researchers have examined the cartularies and
published them so that the rest of us can have the benefit of these
findings. It is not necessary to re-examine the originals.
Yes, we have "cited" Vera London's work. No, we have not "sighted" the
original cartularies. It is unnecessary at this point.
