I wasn't dangling any bait, Jeff, though looking back on my message I see that it seems I
was. I'm currently perparing a paper on my finds which should get published in SJOT in the
near future. What I'll say from now is that the beginning of Line 2 does not contain the
name of the author's father, and the extra letter I discovered was in the first half of
Fragment A.

I know I'm teasing, but give me a couple of weeks and I'll let you know what exactly it is
I found.
