Annotations to the Journal of Matthew Stirling

Date of Note/View Entry Keyword(s) Note

June 23, 1926 Posthumuos

Stirling usually spells his name “Posthumous,” while Hedberg always (correctly) spells it “Posthumus.” In this particular instance however, Stirling’s original handwritten (V2) journal appears to read “Posthumus.”
