Yes it is, James. You seem to be confusing Chapter and Charter. Look back at
what I wrote. You broke up my paragraph, which is perfectly okay, but the
antecedent for the pronoun "it" in the second half of the paragraph is in
the first half of the paragraph, i.e., the founding of the Chapter. The
Remora quote had to do with the Charter, but the earlier quote about the
founding of the Chapter was from Lemur.
