Thanks, Mike. I thought that something had been
unearthed that I'd heard about.
But if the "break" was all on LC's side, why did Mrs
liddell burn his letters to Alice? And wasn't the
"Alice proposal" theory confirmed by Caryl Hargreaves
(though I'd list him as an unreliable witness)?
Didn't the "banishment" coincide with a rift between
LC and the Dean over university policy? Perhaps that
was the reason for the freeze in relations?
