If I wanted to say "when compared with the account of X", where X denotes a person, do I include the ' 's ', so as to convey the account 'belongs' to X? Or may I just leave it as their name?
i.e., is it:
"According to the account of Michael"
"According to the account of Michael's"?
The specific sentence I am working with is:
"From this, we may extract crucial information regarding Bacon's outlook on language, which appears highly similar to that of Hobbes'. "
Is this correct?--noticing that I included the apostrophe but omitted the repetitive s at the end.
