in consequence of the missive, What James told John, penned by CarolTS
James doesn't have two livings and an independence, does he? Isn't that his father?
The fact that Thorpe dwells on the rich factor I think is significant. Not sure where John got the idea, though. I can't imagine James has been explicit about his own income. I haven't had time to check, but I'm not aware that we know what James' income actually is.
