A pleasure to see you on this list.

After your cup of coffee, perhaps you (or someone else on this list) can
answer a question regarding your recent letter to JOM-EMIT. In it, you
state that Campbell (1974) uses the word "mnemon," but you do not give a
page number. I don't recall seeing this word in my original reading of
Campbell, and my present re-read only finds the phrases "nonmnemonic
problem solving" and "mnemonically supported thought," not _mnemon_. In
case my eyes have deceived me, perhaps you could provide some enlightenment.
