I was familiar with Paulowich's Victorian chess of course, but I have never seen an article with the setup that I proposed here. In any case, I was modest enough not to call this variation by my humble name or to attach my name to this variant. After all, this is Capablanca's chess, or rather Carrera's, not mine. I just offered this setup to the owner of Pychess.org, and he really liked it, so it can now be played there and it's the only thing that I really wanted. I only guess that Paulowich didn't believe in this setup enough if he didn't bother to write a single article about it. So, writing this article is my humble contribution, that's all. Btw, it is really unfair that all these variants on 80 squares with traditional pieces plus Archbishops and Chancellors don't bear Carrera's name because he is a real father of this chess. Inventing setups is much easier, right?
