Jay Johnson does "not believe ["Proofs of Holy Writ"] was included in
any of Kipling's collections." It is now generally available in the OUP
collection Mrs Bathurst and Other Stories, ed. Lisa Lewis. On the wider
cultural implications of Kipling's fantasy, and of Burgess's
entertaining reworking of that story in his "Will and Testament," which
does turn on the psalm 46 theory, might I recommend my own article, "The
Bard, the Bible, and the Desert Island," in The Author as Character, ed.
Ton Hoenselaars and myself, Fairleigh Dickinson UP 1999?
