Subject:        Chandos Portrait

In response to Roy Flannagan's question about the Chandos portrait, the best
recommendation I can make is to read the one-page essay in the May 24 TLS. The
author indeed argues that John Taylor of St. Paul's School could be the same
John Taylor to whom the portrait is attributed.  "Evidence" doesn't describe
what he offers; in fact, he ends with the hope that evidence to support his
hunch will be found.  What he offers is a possible scenario that no one has
thought of before--a hypothesis, if you will, rather than a proof.

Lee Jacobus to Roy Flannagan

I thought I had the TLS right here, but I don't.  It was a recent number, maybe
within two months and the argument is quite interesting.  The "evidence" is
based on the possibility of a specific John Taylor in St. Paul's School having
been the same JT who was said to have a good hand at draughtsmanship.  Read it
and see what you think.  I found it plausible.
