I agree.  In "Let us go then, you and I" the "you and I" seems to me
to be a tacked-on phrase to identify "us"; ....

I think you're on to something there, Rick. The identifying
is crucial. The weird thing is, "you and I" doesn't really
do much to help identify "us". In fact it creates more
unknowns.

Cheers,
Peter.
