Excerpt from Biblical Fragments From Mount Sinai
I believe the time has come when every additional scrap of know ledge as to the state of these Eastern libraries should be published: it is not a case of administering information to a many-headed beast, for in this department ... the labourers are very few, and sometimes one fears that they are becoming fewer: to throw a veil over one's move ments, and to hide more than one tells of the quarters from which manuscripts come will, in the end, result only in the development of suspicion as to the methods by which the books or fragments were acquired: while a proper amount of publicity is a safeguard alike to the ownership of persons who are unwilling to part with their property, and to the reputation of those who may have succeeded by lawful means in acquiring it.
