I am sorry Mr. Egert's response has sunk into something personal just
because I disagree with him. I shall not respond another time to any
thing else of that "complexion".
Let every one speak for himself. My answers will certainly be different
than those of David Basch although we both find that Hebrew is extensive
in "TMOV". I give you my web site for the further edification of my
views. http://tmov-caskets.org/index.htm Portia has just been shown
that Morocco prefers the glister of gold to any other metal. It is a way
that her deceased father had prepared to find a worthy consort for his
heiress daughter. His concern is a mirroring of the historical
situation of the Marrano, Gracia Mendes whose daughter Reyna was pursued
by titled fortune hunters throughout Europe. Because of her mother's
maneuverings she was able to eventually marry her cousin Joseph Nasi.
The family settled in Turkey.
