[PHP] PHP cannot use a provided class

  php v5.6.34

  I am working on a very simple PHPMailer; all it has to do is send an
email. I am using the latest version from the Github repository, v6.0.3.
  Running the program produces this:

Fatal error: Class 'PHPMailer' not found in
/home/sohne/web/php/common/php-test-email.php on line 44

  The program obviously loads the class files; there is no error there.
Yet trying to create a new instance fails.

  What am I missing?

----[ The start of the program ]----
    define('PHP_COMMON', '/home/sohne/web/php/common/');

    require(PHP_COMMON . 'phpmailer-603/PHPMailer.php');
    require(PHP_COMMON . 'phpmailer-603/Exception.php');
    require(PHP_COMMON . 'phpmailer-603/SMTP.php');

    //Import the PHPMailer class into the global namespace
    // use PHPMailer\PHPMailer\PHPMailer;

    $from = 'sma.info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx';

    $to = $sendto;
    $replyto = 'moe.james@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
    $cc = '';
    $bcc = '';

    // use PHPMailer;

    $mail = new PHPMailer();
----[ end ]----

  This is the head portion of the PHPMailer Class:

namespace PHPMailer\PHPMailer;
class PHPMailer
  ---- the rest of the class ---
