Robert, you refer to Doris as "almost certainly" the daughter of Den Weer and Sherry Gold. Perhaps I've missed (or simply forgotten) something in the past coinscriptions on PEACE, but ... how does this, which seems to-me-here-now highly conjectural, reach the point of almost certainty?

(A gift from or to whom is another question entirely.) It is also, if I understand rightly, the name of a daughter of Oceanus in Greek myth, which might actually suggest another, mercantile, parentage... --Blattid Now as the river dissolves in the sea, so Neptune has found another soul --
