Thank you, Peter. Of course you are right. Ah, memory....  Revising our notes is a bit complex (tech staff must delete old record and replace with revised record), but we will qualify RD's remark in our notes.

RD screwed the date up. He didn't get as passport until 1955, when he went to London en rioute tio Mallorca. His 1953 date for the first draft is completely w r o n g -- and later on the tape he says he rewrote it "some two years later" in SPRING 1958. Do the math.
