Hi Howard:
The first sentence in the "Summary" on page 7 is very similar, but
not quite the same. I guess it's a matter of a somewhat different
translation. The source you just gave, btw, appears as an appendix
in the Eric Bentley ed. version of _Galileo_, the play by Brecht.
Perhaps the lesson of the thread should be 'don't rely exclusively
on secondary sources if one wants to write the truth'? My mistake.
In solidarity, Jerry_______________________________________________
