a reply to: Hooke
Hooke: But you said earlier that he did it for prestige, patronage and privilege. Now you say that we don't know why he did it.
SC: We don’t know why Vyse entered parliament. I offered you some possible reasons which are no different to why most politicians enter parliament,
even today. IS that clearer for you?
Hooke: He very likely thought that entering Parliament, using methods that had become widely accepted, and helping to maintain the status quo
once he was an MP, was the right thing to do.
SC: Who knows but it’s not the point. The point is he was elected to parliament by committing electoral fraud.
Hooke: It was a mechanism used by many other MPs.
SC: Was this “mechanism” illegal in 1807? Yes or No?
Hooke: No - he would have needed to know the right context in which to place it.
SC: These were unofficial markings often described as workers’ graffiti. It didn’t matter what the graffiti said.
”Cartouches in tomb to the W. [west] of first pyramid are different than Suphis [Khufu].”
Hooke: Whatever he wrote, I doubt if it could have been 'different than', which is a present day American usage.
SC: Well why don’t you actually look at the PDF file (here
contains the text and actually check it yourself. I think you will find it says what I claim it says.
Hooke: He refers several times to Champollion and Rosellini.
SC: He mentions these names in his book which was published in 1840, three years after he returned from Giza. He may well have had access to
Rosellini’s 1832 book.
Hooke: So Brewer was definitely at Giza?
SC: Well, we certainly know from Brewer’s obituary that he was indeed in Egypt around the right time. According to the account of his
great-grandson, Walter Allen, it seems he was with Vyse at Giza in 1837. I see little reason to doubt Allen’s family record.
