Well, four people have now searched their collections and not come up
with it, so I'm left to conclude that I'm wrong about its having seen
print there. Perhaps I sent it in near the end of the newsletter's
run and the journal stopped before it appeared. Too bad; it would
have been a useful starting point for a re-reading of MacPherson I'm
about to embark on soon.
Many thanks to all who tried to help me locate this bibliographic
ghost (Gary, Joe, Margaret, & David); hope your trip down memory lane
was enjoyable in its own right. Let me know if sometime I can return
And a happy Twelfth Day of Christmas to you all.
