I have cced you in this reply of mine as it appears that my
posts seem to disappear. No idea why ? or who the
"moderator" is that decides to -- junk them ?
WHY involve something technical and scientific with
something political ?
IF you want serious maps ( even of Africa ) why not try the
International Cartographic Society
Survayers have cause to make muche.of me.
And so have all Lordes , that landes do possesse.
But Tennauntes I feare will like me the lesse.
Yet do I not wrong but measure all trueley.
All yelde the full right of everye man justely
Proportion Geometrical hath no man opprest.
If anye bee wronged, I wish it redrest
