A statement on page 127 reads: '... as this outline presents the first trial ever made to collect the known historical events and to put them together in a chronological order, I am well aware that it contains errors and perhaps many of them. But if so, such misstatements are the consequence of erroneous information I received. No misstatement has been made wilfully ...'.

Henry, Fred
