Thank you for this reference! Alas, I don't have it at hand, and time is
running short. I may just be vague, in true academic fashion, and pray
that no one asks for a specific date!

Lewis, have you checked Gordon Campbell's blow-by-blow guide, A Milton

don't--perhaps someone who does can flip to the relevant pages and give
you the
quick answer.
