Fuge identified as "the well known book, Can A Young Man Trust. His Bible?- -; By Arthur Cook, Missionary to Iceland." (I later learned that the. Gook, not Cook.) Fuge began by stating categorically that "[t]he. M. de Parville, editor of the famous Journal. DИbats, whose name and reputation as a scientist are a sufficient answer to those.

Fox) "that the. account given by the captain and the crew of the English whaler is worthy of belief."Who was de Parville, whom both Fuge and Fox cited as an authority on the Bartley story? And what had he learned from his investigation? Eventually I would reel in the answers.
I went fishing after medical records that might survive pertaining to the. Bartley's parboiled skin. As a start, I paid a visit to the library of the Royal College of Surgeons, where I. London hospitals in the 1. I could probably see a copy of "The Psychology of Animals Swallowed. Alive," a brief monograph by Sir John Bland- Sutton mentioned in Wilson's article. I. was soon ensconced in a corner with a presentation copy of the Bland- Sutton and all the.

Jonah, but it was the biblical version (which he was inclined to doubt) and not Bartley's. Edgartown whaleman that Wilson. Nor did any of the hospital histories mention treating such a case.
Some time later, at the British Library, I searched. Lancet and the British Medical Journal for 1. I debated with myself whether to try searching hospital records from. I could locate them, the task would. Still lacking solid confirmation for my whale story, I decided not to try.
As I was leaving the RCS library, however, a staff member asked me whether I had seen the. Julian Barnes, A History of the World in 1.

Had he found it first? Had I been. scooped? The public libraries were already closed for the day, so I hustled over to the. Charing Cross Road, where I found a copy of Barnes' book. He printed a short. I already had, taken from a source he did not identify, with added. Bartley and de Parville that I had.
He also dated the incident as having happened on 2. August 1. 89. 1, not in. February as my other accounts all had it. I soon learned that his story had to be wrong, at least with regard to the date, for I. Bartley that was published on 2.

Bartley story as it has come down to us. I began with the only really "hard" evidence I thought I possessed: the.
New York Times, allegedly taken from an issue of the South. Yarmouth Mercury from October 1. A bit of checking at the British Library soon. Indeed there is no place called South. Yarmouth, at least not that I could find on the maps available to me. There is a little.
Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, near Portsmouth on the southern coast, and a. Great Yarmouth, on the coast about a hundred miles northeast of London in East. Anglia. The latter had to be it, since a weekly called the Yarmouth Mercury had in.
Armed with this information, I set aside a Saturday. British Library in Colindale, near the former RAF.
Hendon, about 4. 5 minutes north of central London on the Underground. I soon. discovered to my chagrin that the newspaper I needed to see was being microfilmed and was. Convinced that this was the most important source I might find, I called several. London in an effort to locate one that had a complete run of.

Clearly this was not my whale- -or was it? Two clippings, one written within days of the. Gorleston whale had inspired a number of humorous. Because no specific reference to the Bartley story was given, we may. I had to wonder. was it. Gorleston whale in another guise? Turning my attention.
There was nothing about. Bartley, or any other whale, in the October issues of the Mercury, and likewise for. November and December.
Going back to February, when Bartley was supposed to have been. I began to work my way forward. Reaching June, I found several articles about.

James Bartley popped out of the microfilm reader and into my eyes. MAN IN A WHALE'S STOMACH, RESCUE OF A MODERN JONAH," said the headline.

Having brought my research to what I considered a satisfactory conclusion for the time.
I packed up my fishing gear until I returned home to the States. Here, as time. allowed, I pursued three smaller fish, two of whom grew before my eyes into specimens of. I chased them.

The third fish I sought to land was, ironically, found in the volume that started all. Winona Echoes. Thus far I had not paid much attention to Rimmer's sermon on. Jonah, an exact reprint of a tract Rimmer printed in 1. Research Science Bureau. According to information given in. Bible study magazine Wonderful.

I cannot say whether it differs at all from the tract. I very much. doubt that it does, since it was characteristic of Rimmer to regurgitate his material. The. very same sermon appeared once again, with one change I will mention below, in The. Harmony of Science and Scripture. In any event the sermon includes a number of. Jonah's home for a few days.
But not one mention of Bartley can be found. I was vexed- -had Rimmer been uncharacteristically suspicious of the story, so much so. Neither possibility seems. Bartley isn't there, at least not by name.
Rimmer does relate a story that. Bartley's tale, somehow the same but somehow different. I would not solve for some months yet. It comes right near the end of. In the Literary Digest we noticed an account of an English sailor who was.
