      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
      the favor.

      And a happy Twelfth Day of Christmas to you all.
