[Wikipedia-l] Francis Bacon

I've been working through the Francis Bacon article, mostly wikifying 
and reducing the wordy prose of the 1911 Encyclopedia.  The version that 
we have is of course identical to the on-line version put up to support 
the Republican Party, right down to the scanning errors.  Since I'm 
editing and cleaning all that out I'm not at all worried about potential 
copyright issues.

I do have one problem.  There is a page missing from the Republican 
version which is therefore also missing from our version.  If anyone has 
ready access to the original encyclopedia I would very much appreciate 
if that page could be scanned and uploaded to the Francis Bacon talk 
page.  I could then take and put an edited version at the appropriate 
place in the article text.  The missing biographical page covers the 
time period at the end of Elizabeth's reign, and the beginning of that 
of James I including the execution of the Earl of Essex.

Thanks,  Eclecticology
