Happy holiday Burkelers!

I hope the new location of the listserv is active, because I have a
question that one of you could quickly answer: In RM, KB notes that Cicero
identified the offices of rhetoric as to teach, to delight, and to move.
That list comes from Orator (NOT De Oratore), but I'm having a tough time
finding exactly the section number for that reference (KB didn't give one).
(I've also run into a debate over its connection to Aristotle and the
extent to which it is reflected in Cicero's later writings.)

Any clues?

Cheers,

Clarke
