To answer your question I will repeat what I said. Richardson's sources are in the section (immediately) below the bio on William Booth. They are there for anyone to see (view the online snippit found on page 260. The link is posted in one of my earlier comments.) I am glad that you are taking an interest in the accuracy of this profile. If you have information to add please do so. We welcome positive collaborative efforts and criticism when there is a genuine effort to conttribute useful information.

You seem to be upset or agitated about something. You are welcome to provide sources if you wish but I will not be drawn into some kind of argument with you. Take time to calm yourself and post your sources.
