I'd be very interested in seeing Ennis's version for its own sake.

It seems possible to me, who know nothing about the facts of this specific case, that Gainer's inconsistent attribution may have been nothing more than a laps of memory or a confusion in his notes.

On the other hand, Lindfors has shown that anything reported by Woofter must, unfortunately, be tainted with suspicion.
