I ‛ve just been “ handed ” a note from my assistants. “ Professor
Anthon went on to deny that he authenticated the
characters on at least two occasions.”
 
  It is true that Prof. Anthon later changed his story twice in statements to others, even contradicting himself as to what had happened. In one instance he stated that he did not give me a certificate, and the other time he said that he did, but that he wrote stating it was all a fraudulent hoax.*  
     
  He even claims to have talked me out of having anything to do with the translation of the “ Golden Bible ” as he called it.  
     
  Now I ask you this, if he had talked me out of this so-called hoax, as he claims, why would I excitedly turn around and almost immediately dedicate substantial amounts of time, money, and property to the endeavor ?  
     
  Once again the prosecution
is confounded
by simple logic.
