I'll have to see what is in the scan I have.  I notice that it seems to not be easily available online-- I'll fix that and add it to the Internet Archive.

Hi Joel -  I've also got it as a PDF, will e-mail to you.

It's still the same book, but for the page where it lists the date and where it was entered into record.
