Yes, there are problems with chapter numbering in different editions, Maybe you would like to discuss this with mother, her address is firstname.lastname@example.org I am sure she could give you more than I could. The Balfour Quote is also in Dimbleby, J, The Palestinians, Quartet, London, 1979, p.35. Cheers Jeremy
