John has asked me to post a link to the webpage he cited during our discussion regarding the authenticity of Roger Casement's "Black" Diaries. The author Sean Murphy argues quite reasonably that whether they are forged or not is still an open question. Read for yourselves and decide!

Some of us wondered why Roger Casement kept his Black Diary. Oscar Wilde had this to say about diaries: "I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train." The quote appears in Brian Lacey's informative chapter on Roger Casement in his book Terrible Queer Creatures (Dublin, Wordwell, 2008).
