    I had written-
    "Relevant to Nicolas'well-informed views about the backstaff is a recent
    article by Jim Bennett, "Catadioptrics and commerce in eighteenth-century
    London", in History of Science, vol xliv, 2006, pages 247-277. I have it as
    a .pdf file of about a megabyte, and can post it to the list, or send it
    backstage, as requested."
    I will email copies tomorrow to those members who have requested. If you
    want your name added to that list, say so now.
