I hope that participants on this list realize that there are reasons why
my postings tend to be bare-bones antedatings without accompanying
discussion.  I have a demanding full-time administrative job, a family,
and engage in extensive publishing and consulting activities (for the past
six years I have been compiling with only modest research assistance a
quotation dictionary much more thoroughly researched than the Oxford
Dictionary of Quotations), and therefore only have a few minutes to devote
per antedating.

Stephen's request is so nicely worded, however, that I will try to look up
more context for this one and post it to the list.
