correspondent of Herbert Ashe in Borges story

Fishburn and Hughes: A fictional character who appears in several stories: in Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius as Gunnar Erfjord, one of the inventors of Tlön; in Three Versions of Judas as Erik Erfjord, a Danish Hebraicist; and in The Theologians simply as Erfjord, a Christian theologist. The surname coincides with that of Norah Lange’s mother, and Borges was distantly related to her family. See Williamson, 99 Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius; Three Versions of Judas; The Theologians
