This is Page 40 of the bound volume of The Deer’s Cry at the Manx Museum.

On the left hand side are three “a”s forming the first letter for “Against”,”and” and “Alone.” What is the greeny/grey column in the middle- an unrolled scroll, a Manx standing stone?

The words in the above paragraph are just my personal and subjective thoughts. Knox must have had so many ideas and thoughts behind this page and the other pages which, perhaps, we will never know.

The Archibald Knox Forum would like to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments on any of the pages from The Deer’s Cry.
