When Henry posted Beocat, I forwarded it to my dad (who does medieval
lit).  Yesterday, he saw it on the Anglo-Saxon list
(ansax-l@wvnvm.wvnet.edu), posted by "L.Hunter Cassells"
<mellyrn@enh.nist.gov>, asking if anybody knew where it came from;
today, he got this reply:

> Date:         Thu, 27 Jul 1995 19:28:19 -0700
> From: Lita Verts <vertsl@UCS.ORST.EDU>
> Subject:      Beocat et al
> To: Multiple recipients of list ANSAX-L <ANSAX-L@WVNVM.WVNET.EDU>
> For those interested in the correct citation for 'Beocat', it is found in

> includes such gems as 'The Cat's Tale' by Geoffrey Chaucers Cat; 'She

> Raven' by Edgar Allen Poe's Cat, among others of equal note.  Great fun

>         Lita Verts (vertsl@ucs.orst.edu)

(OK, so maybe mellyrn has already posted this--I wouldn't have seen
yet, I don't subscribe here at work.  I just didn't want to assume he
was on atlantia-l; funny stuff travels fast on the Net.  :-)
