Hello Albert:

Good work my good man!

This completely explains my frustrations trying to find this
messy reference.

"somewhere in Georgia" means nowhere in the *U* Database. Some
unknown date in 1940 [or any other year], same thing. Add the
two together, and you have a 100% probability that the report
will never ever ever get into my catalog.  Richard Nixon will
rise from the dead and win a third term as president before I
list a case like that.

Best wishes
