Dear Ms. Stephenson,

Thanks for letting us all know about this.  Miltonists are always happen to hear
that their leader is still famous.  

Since you have asked for questions and/or insights, you might just note that
there's no contemporary evidence for the persistent legend that Milton dictated
to his daughters.  They did read to him, but Milton's amanuenses were all
male.

(I am sure if I've got this wrong, ten of my colleagues on Milton-L will set me
straight.)

Yours sincerely,

Jameela Lares
