Excerpt from The Full Significance of 1492
We should consider it as prima facie a rather suspicious circumstance, if a man should visit the only two places where exact information as to the whereabouts of a certain thing could be obtained - the more important of these visits ... being kept a profound secret - and should after that go straight on the road to find that very thing, and thereby obtain for himself all the glory of a new discovery, to the exclusion of the rights of daring men who, 500 years before, had acquired the knowledge he strove to obtain the reputation of having been the first to give to the world while at the same time this man tells all manner of untruths as to the considerations and reasonings that led him to go straight to find what he sought.
