February 2024
1min read

The editor replies: In assigning Mr. Cole to write a factually correct account of his experiences, we relied on his reputation and his word. We were mistaken to do so and regret not having followed our usual fact-checking procedure. Mr. Brook was seriously misrepresented, and we apologize to him, to his friends and associates, and, not least, to our readers .

We hope you enjoy our work.
