Barry and Jim Rader,

Barry, would you be able to post the details of Dave Shulman's 1927
citation?  Also, I notice that MW10 gives a 1936 dating for _pastrami_?
Jim, would you be able to post the exact 1936 citation on ADS-L?  Thanks
to both of you for any help you are able to give with these requests.
