Hi friends, colleagues,

In a weak moment, I agreed to give a talk at the local Sherlocke Holmes
Society on Holmes' hypothesis that "the ancient Cornish language...was akin
to the Chaldean, and had largely derived from the Phoenician traders in
tin."  ("The Adventures of the Devil's Foot," HIS LAST BOW).  Comments anyone?
