      See David Norton, "John Bois's Notes on the revision of the King
      James Bible New Testament: A New Manuscript," The Library, 6th ser.,
      XVIII:4, 328-346. "John Bois's notes taken during the final revision
      of the epistles and Revelation for the King James Bible (KJB) are now
      well known to scholars of English Bible translation. They give a
      unique insight into the way the translators worked, and they show
      above all the translators' sensitivity to the nuances of the Greek
      and the level of scholarship they brought to their work." The
      original notes have disappeared, but at least two copies of them have
      survived. The article describes the second copy and lists its
      differences from the first copy, together with photographs of some
      parallel pages.
      In connection with some recent answers to queries, would it not
      be better to refer enquirers to Bible dictionaries where they may
      find full explanations, the respondents only specifying any
      objections they may have to details in the published sources?
