1728 Wilderness-civilized boundary Place
1752 Sunday Time of Year

This should probably go under day of the week in col. 2, but it does not exist. My thinking is that there might be days that are more pronounced in Faulkner, notably the Sabbath and Wednesday prayer. The specific example is from Monk.
