Excerpt from Codex B and Its Allies, Vol. 1: A Study and an Indictment

I proceed to name the aforesaid scholar, since he has challenged me. Dr. A. Souter began a review of my Genesis of the Versions by saying that It is the business of a critic first to destroy his enemy's position before he seeks to build up his own.

He ended by expressing gratitude for my collations of mss as such, but added some very strong advice to hold my tongue as regarded commenting on the evidence so painfully accumulated, which he and others would use-but which I must not use or discuss. He said: We cannot aford to do without his valuable cooperation in New Testament textual criticism, but would suggest that he confine his energies to the collection and accurate presentation of material, and leave theorizing to others, at least meantime.

I refuse to be bound by such advice. I demand a fair hearing on a subject very near my heart, and with which by close attention for many years I have tried to make myself sufficiently acquainted to be able and qualified to discuss it with those few who have pursued a parallel course of study.
