I checked this, but this seems to be other people's comments (Friedman's and
And also a letter from O'Neill: (25 Jan 1945)
"The original MS belongs to Mrs. Voynich who, I am told,
keeps it in the vault of a bank in New York. On account of Mrs.
Voynich advanced age, I think Miss Nill, her adopted daughter

There is, though, a letter from Strong to O'Neill (1945?) that mentions: "I
had a talk with Miss Nill.. Either she is unwilling to let me have access to
a photostatic copy of the Voynich or she is too busy to talk the matter over
further with me or due to the unsettled condition of the Voynich estate, a
photostatic copy of the Voynich will not or cannot be made available to me."
I cannot remember where I read that Mrs. Voynich left it in her will to
