This short piece provides the cumulative textual evidence that Pynchon consulted a single source, Golder, F.A., 1915. ?The Russian Fleet and the Civil War?. The American Historical Review, 20(4), pp.801-812, to construct the historicity of the Peter Pinguid Society episode in The Crying of Lot 49, as opposed to consulting the original Arkhiv Morskogo Ministerstva, Dielo Kantseliarii Morskogo Ministerstva, no. 91, pt. III., pp. 102, 103.
