The evidence that the VMs came from the Villa
Mondragone was a handwritten letter by Ethel
Voynich, to be opened after her death. Both
Wilfrid and his wife kept the location from 
public knowledge during their lives. Lies
are usually 'maintained' the other way around:
told during lifetime, to be revoked on the
deathbed or in a document to be opened after.

The poster (if he is who he is) will have a lot
of very hard evidence to explain away...
