I'm afraid my memory is just as foggy on those details. As I recall, that
heated exchange was taking place at a time for me when I was very busy
off-list, and never followed it closely.
I can, and will, say that I have nothing but respect for Chris Phillips as a
researcher and as a person. I've had lunch with him on my two previous
trips to London, and he was a tremendous help to me on the last trip at the
National Archives in Kew.
I also feel FMG is a top-of-the-line organization, and I know, having
written a couple articles for them (and hopefully more to come someday),
that they take research very seriously.

I don't know Mr. Cawley, and haven't corresponded with Chris in quite
awhile, but it may be (in Chris's case) that life has steered him off onto
other focuses. He certainly doesn't seem like the kind of person who sulks
in a corner or holds a grudge. I haven't used Medlands, but I use Chris
Phillips's website frequently.
If you still have issues or questions around Medlands, send an email off to
>Something about plagarism ?
Chris Phillips doesn't plagiarize. If you've come across plagiarism on
Medlands, then definitely alert FMG.
See what youre getting intobefore you go there
