His suggestion is noted by Grenfell and Hunt in their initial publications
of P.Oxy. 654:
Grenfell, Bernard P., and Arthur S. Hunt. New Sayings of Jesus and Fragment
of a Lost Gospel from Oxyrhynchus. London: Oxford University Press, 1904.
Grenfell, Bernard P., and Arthur S. Hunt. The Oxyrhynchus Papyri IV. London:
Egypt Exploration Fund, 1904.
Lake also published the suggestion himself in:
Lake, Kirsopp. "The New Sayings of Jesus and the Synoptic Problem." Hibbert
Journal 3 (1904-1905): 332-41.
However, most scholars rejected his proposal.
