N2 - I give a proof of Sanov's theorem that the Lie relators of weight at most $2p-2$ in groups of exponent $p$ are consequences of the identity $px=0$ and the $(p-1)$-Engel identity. This implies that the order of the class $2p-2$ quotient of the Burnside group $B(m,p)$ is the same as the order of the class $2p-2$ quotient of the free $m$ generator $(p-1)$-Engel Lie algebra over GF$(p)$. To make the proof self-contained I have also included a derivation of Hausdorff's formulation of the Baker Campbell Hausdorff formula.
