The essay was condensed for publication in 1996 and contains a note that any researcher who wishes for “a copy of the original (with its 109 footnotes) could send $3” to editor Naomi Miller. Twenty-four years later, a researcher would like those important source notes. Sadly, I do not have the files from previous editors, and Naomi has not kept these files, but perhaps one of our readers knows Chris Bogan and the connection will be made.
